Simon Van Booy Fans


Somehow I missed that Simon Van Booy has a forthcoming book, The Sadness Of Beautiful Things: Stories. He is one of my favorite short story writers, so I am excited to share this update. It will be published October 2, 2018 by Penguin Books, and if the Galley gods are kind, I’ll get an arc to review.

Via netgalley: From a family saved from ruin by a mysterious benefactor, to a downtrodden boxer who shows unexpected kindness to a mugger, these masterfully written tales reveal not only the precarious balance maintained between grief and happiness in our lives, but also how the echoes of personal tragedy can shape us for the better.
