Chris Bohjalian

Signed copies of THE RED LOTUS available.

While famous for writing Midwives, an early and influential Oprah Winfrey selection, many of us know Chris Bohjalian best as Sunday columnist for The Burlington Free Press, where he frequently shares his decidedly modest life as husband and dad. Charmingly self-deprecating, Chris seems an unlikely celebrity, which, as the critically acclaimed author of seventeen books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Sandcastle Girls, Skeletons at the Feast, and The Double Bind, he certainly is. A resident of Weybridge, VT, Chris truly lives among us. Chris' novels are a pleasure to read and always an education, of sorts, as he so enjoys the research aspect of his job. Pick up any of his novels and you will go away having a deeper understanding of what drives another individual wholly unlike you.

Alexis Remnick may actually, really, be in love, but as this realization dawns on her, Austin Harper, the target of her love, fails to return from a solo bike ride over the mountainous Hai Van Pass near Da Nang and Hoi An, Vietnam.  Austin is a very experienced cyclist, so the fact that he is so late coming back is very, very troubling. That is just the first of many layers peeled back one by one in this slow burn of a thriller by Chris Bohjalian. Ultimately supremely satisfying, this novel takes you on a very twisty, and twisted, path.

“From the explosive beginning all the way to the adrenaline rush of its conclusion, The Guest Room packs an emotional punch that will leave the reader gasping. When a bachelor party goes terribly wrong and two Russian mobsters wind up dead in his home, financier Richard Chapman finds himself struggling to save his job and marriage. Intertwined with Richard’s story is the tale of Alexandra, a young sex slave with a narrative voice that will break your heart. Nobody does domestic drama quite like Bohjalian. Once again he proves himself a master of page-turning literary fiction.” —Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books, Excelsior, MN
