Suzanne Brøgger’s THE JADE CAT in Booklist
Coming next week is Suzanne Brogger's The Jade Cat, a remarkable new novel recently reviewed in Booklist: "Spanning continents and two world wars, this sprawling family saga follows one family and their relentless ambition. Starting on New Year’s Eve, 1940, the wealthy Lovin family is rife with drama and heartbreak. Almost oblivious to the collapsing world around them, the family continues their infighting and struggling. . . Brogger’s Tolstoy-like observations about family (“The same phenomenon that makes the family so intolerable when you are young is precisely what makes it so fascinating when you are old”) make readers want to follow the difficult, and not entirely sympathetic, characters."
