THE WIFE BETWEEN US by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen - New York Post "Here are the best picks for your book club’s next read"

New York Post | March 2, 2019

“Anyone who’s in a book club knows the challenge of choosing what to read: Ideally, something that isn’t too long, too esoteric or too dense, a book with enough of a plot to generate good discussion and maybe some controversy thrown in for good measure. Still, nailing the formula can be difficult.

‘People often ask what makes a good book club pick. You want a well-rounded book that has equal parts story, character, setting and literary merit. A hook or way in for every type of reader,’ says Lynn Lobash, Head of Reader Services at the New York Public Library.

‘It should be accessible, not something you need a Ph.D. in English Literature to discuss. And remember that one of the joys of reading is reflecting on self. A book can be a vehicle to look at your own motivations and reactions, and book clubs often become a sort of group therapy. Memoirs and psychological fiction are great picks.’”
