Joshua Henkin's new novel, Matrimony

A couple weeks ago I did a double-take as I passed who I thought to be one of my college creative writing instructors, Josh Henkin. He did a double-take too, as he passed who he thought to be one of his former students. We stopped and said hi and said we'd try to get lunch sometime. How funny to run into him on the street, in Philadelphia, so many years later!

He has a new novel out, Matrimony, that was just released earlier this week. If you are looking for something to read, I can recommend it. I haven't had time to read it yet, but I recommend it based on his previous novel and my good faith in his abilities. (As a teacher, I liked him so much that I signed up for his section in a later semester, a feat rivaled only by Prof. Gorman "Col. Sanders" Beauchamp.)

He's also going to be touring around the country reading from and promoting the novel, so you can drop by and hear an excerpt before you do anything rash like buying a hardcover on my recommendation.
