We are thrilled to welcome Chris Bohjalian back to the store, he has long been a staff favorite.
Set against an exquisitely rendered Italian countryside, The Light in the Ruins unveils a breathtaking story of moral paradox, human frailty, and the mysterious ways of the heart.

Chris Bohjalian is the critically acclaimed author of sixteen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers Midwives and The Sandcastle Girls.
Chris Bohjalian's new novel, The Light in the Ruins, arrives on July 9.
