The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti

The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti was called “a master class in literary suspense” by the Washington Post and “strikingly symphonic” by The New York Times Book Review. Come pick it up for 10% off and then join us for the chit chat at 7pm on June 20.

“Can a man be both a violent criminal and a good father? Imagine a Quentin Tarantino movie crossed with a John Green novel, and you’ll have a sense of what this coming-of-age novel is like.”Entertainment Weekly 

“Tinti depicts brutality and compassion with exquisite sensitivity, creating a powerful overlay of love and pain.” The New Yorker 

“The book [has] an irresistible velocity that Ms. Tinti sustains to the end.”The Wall Street Journal

“Tinti has established herself as one of our great storytellers. She draws you in with this book, and it’s really difficult to get away.”Rolling Stone 

“A shoot-em-up, a love story and a mystery, this is one heartwarming feast of a book.”People

“The term ‘literary thriller’ is almost an oxymoron. It’s the writerly equivalent of threading a needle while riding on a rollercoaster, requiring attention to character and fine prose while hurtling from one near-disaster to another. Only a few writers can pull it off, and Hannah Tinti is one of them. . . . The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is a gripping father-daughter road trip where the bad guys are never far behind. . . . Tarantino-like in its plot twists, action, and violence, the novel sweeps across the country and back and forth in time. Its structure feels as meticulously crafted as a matchstick Taj Mahal.”Interview
