Goldman Advance Readers Copies

Monday’s New Yorker features a moving story  by Francisco Goldmans about his young wife Aura, who died after a surfing accident, “The Wave; A tragedy in Mexico” (by subscription only).

The events are the basis of Goldman’s forthcoming book, Say Her Name, to be published by Grove Press in April 2011.

The publisher is making copies available to EarlyWord readers.  UPDATE: Sorry, we’ve run out of copies; you can still get the title from NetGalley.

The New Yorker story is nonfiction, but the book is a novel. Goldman explains why he chose that form,

I’ve surrounded Aura and myself with a fictionalized family and friends for numerous reasons, including the duty to protect, to keep secrets, including our own secrets, while providing the space to write a true account of our lives – Aura’s and my own, with and without her.
