Here comes The Bishop’s Wife


Over the next few Fridays, I’ll be posting several times on Mette Ivie Harrison’s upcoming novel, The Bishop’s Wife (to be released December 30 from Soho Press). I know Harrison primarily from her memoir Ironmom (which I haven’t read) and the frequently forgotten fact (only to me) that she writes YA fantasy. This is the first longer work of hers I’ve read.

Instead of writing a long post covering many issues, I’ve decided to write a series of shorter posts covering such topics as exposition, marketing, genre whatnot, and who knows? maybe even a review! A couple posts that seem unfair to post before you’ve had a chance to read the book will post in the new year.

Suffice it to say I think the novel is worth your time and I’ll see you next Friday and the Friday after that and the Friday after that . . . . or maybe every other Friday. We’ll see how it goes.

  1. For what it’s worth, they’re running ads for it in Publishers Weekly. Not a lot of books get that kind of push anymore…

  2. When I was at the American Library Association’s conference this summer, it was one of the main books being heavily promoted by Random House. They ran out of ARCs before I got to the booth, but thankfully I’ve been able to snag a review copy since then.
