Justin Tussing novel is out

An excerpt from the workshop grad's novel was published in the New Yorker Debut Fiction issue back in June and was reviewed here on Earth Goat (under the mistaken impression that it was a short story). The novel is called The Best People in the World. There is an article on Tussing in the Des Moines Register, and I also found a review of the book. I remember really liking the writing. Wonder if he's coming to read in the IC?

Yeah, Justin is scheduled to roll through Prairie Lights on Thursday, March 30 @ 7:00 PM. Sorry I won't, can't, be there to see him.

Sure do wish he'd make it down to Square Books, our little oasis in north Mississippi.

Thanks, Mitch. Guess I could have looked that up myself.

Also, Publisher's Weekly gave it a starred review. That and some other good reviews are on Amazon.
