People Like Them by Samira Sedira

(I)ntense psychological suspense novel inspired by a true story about a couple in an insular French village whose lives are upended when a family of outsiders moves in. (publisher)

I browsed the first pages of Florence Adler Swims Forever and am captivated. It will be first on my list after my current reads are done. 
Nakamura's noir fiction is a favorite of mine, so I'm pretty happy to have  My Annihilation. Insular French villages always capture my interest, and so does People Like Them.

I want to read all three of those books!!!!! Is that a type-o? Annihilation doesn't come out until 2022??? But you have it in your hands? How does THAT happen? lol Adding all three to my TBR.

People Like Them would be my first choice. Sounds very interesting.

Jinjer, Intrepid Angeleno: I received an uncopyedited edition in advance, from the publisher.

I am always happy when I get books I am eager to read in the mail. I would be happy to see these three books in the mail.

Florence Adler Swims Forever sounds especially interesting to me. Since it's historical fiction, I wonder when the story takes place.

I'll be interested in seeing what you think of these.

Harvee said...

Deb Nance, the setting and time for Florence Adler Swims Forever is Atlantic City, 1934.

Jinjer-The Intrepid Angeleno said...

Yes, sorry, I saw that about the "uncopyedited edition in advance, from the publisher" after I posted my question. LOL Very cool!!!!!

Florence Adler is a poignant read, a little slow but also meditative
