David Guterson returns with Ed King
Here is the storyline. It’s Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary -“a guy who weighs risk for a living” – takes a risk himself. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, his British au pair. Diane finds herself pregnant. Although the child is adopted, the future is bright for this particular love child and the story unfolds from there.
Ahh, the middle-aged man and 18-year-old au pair dilemma. I can sense the squirming of many middle-aged men as they read this. Snow Falling on Cedars is a pretty good book so we’ll see how the reaction goes for this one.
And we have a few signed copies of Ed King for sale.
