The Kindness Kind

A belated congratulations to our friend Carlene Bauer, whose first book was published last month by Harper. Not That Kind of Girl is an autobiographical coming-of-age story, what Walter Kirn calls "A journey from faith and innocence to something less comforting – but decidedly more interesting." I haven't had a chance to pick it up yet, but I love the cover, designed by Leanne Shapton – and if it's anything like the other things Carlene has written, it will be unique and smart and funny.

Get it here or there or wherever you git yer books at.
