Susan Richards Shreve

Cindy Seip

Susan Richards Shreve is the author of fifteen novels, most recently You Are the Love of My Life, a memoir, and twenty-nine books for children. Her novel More News Tomorrow (W.W. Norton & Co.), is a thrilling and richly drawn family drama about a daughter’s quest to understand her mother’s death. On the morning of her seventieth birthday, Georgianna Grove receives an unexpected letter that calls her back to the place where her mother was murdered sixty-six years earlier. Her father had confessed to the murder the next morning. Celebrated for her “refined explorations of parent-child relationships” (Washington Post), Shreve sets Georgianna one quest to finally understand her parents’ fate. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout noted that “In this enormously varied and yet tied-together book, Shreve has written a story of multi-generations―the great mysteries surrounding the things we know and the things we don’t know, and she has done this with a prose that is intriguingly delicate and yet strong at the same time; More News Tomorrow is one of her very best books.”
