Monday night I went to an author reading. I showed up early because there's been lots of buzz about this book. Sometimes I wait until after the reading to buy the book, but the cover was so gorgeous and the reviews so positive, I bought the book and started it while I waited. I was slightly annoyed when the man announced the program was starting because I didn't want to put the book down. Until I remembered that the author, Danielle Trussoni, was about to speak!

Angelology is a fantastical thriller, not my normal genre of reading, but I was immediately drawn in. It's infused with historical fiction, a convent and a young nun (research for my Highgate/St. Peter's manuscript!), ancient secrets, the art world, World War II and elegant writing. From what I've read so far, it's the perfect combination of commercial and literary. Seven publishing houses fought over it. And Will Smith bought the film rights. This is going to be big.

I'll be back in a few days with a review. And watch over at What Women Write. You never know who might show up for an interview...
