Palace Council in People

The phrase “eagerly anticipated” is not only cliched, but rarely documented. In the case of Palace Council, we are justified in using the term, since the book is featured on four Summer Reading lists (USA Today, L.A. Times, O the Oprah Magazine and the Washington Post. See the “Books of Summer — Picks” list at the right).

Ironically, People did not include Palace Council on their list, but they’re the first of the consumer pubs to review it (expect more this week). They say,

Carter’s third novel, set between 1952 and 1972, is a fast-paced political thriller…readers will enjoy the novel’s plot twists…In this story, no one can be trusted.

Most ibraries have the book on order in all formats, with comfortable holds to copy ratios; a few have not ordered the large type or audio editions.
