We’ve been writing about a book with a distinctive title, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, ever since Marcie Purcell, head of library marketing at Random House, first presented it at ALA MidWinter.

If you’ve had trouble imagining a story about a little girl who can taste the feelings of the people who made the food she eats, listen to the interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday.

The book is rising on Amazon, hitting it’s highest peak to date, #44, making it the 9th best selling hardcover adult fiction title.

Library holds are also on the rise.
