Where Memories Go Sally Magnusson Magnus Magnusson dementia Alzheimer'sWhere Memories Go, the brilliant and moving account of how Scottish broadcaster and author Sally Magnusson and her family cared for her mother Mamie during her long struggle with dementia, comes out in February 2014.

With Sally’s help we have created a Facebook page for the book. Our aim is to make it the place to find out more about Sally, her mother and the book; but also a forum for people who are affected, directly or indirectly, by dementia. The page is already up and running and we would be very grateful if you could take a look, like it and share it with your friends: Facebook.com/WhereMemoriesGo

A little more info on the book…

Where Memories Go Sally Magnusson Magnus Magnusson dementia Alzheimer'sRegarded as one of the finest journalists of her generation, Mamie Baird Magnusson‘s whole life was a celebration of words – words that she fought to retain in the grip of a disease which

is fast becoming the scourge of the 21st century. Married to writer and broadcaster Magnus Magnusson, they had five children of whom Sally is the eldest. As well as chronicling the anguish, the frustrations and the unexpected laughs and joys that she and her sisters experienced while accompanying their beloved mother on the long dementia road for eight years until her death in 2012, Sally Magnusson seeks understanding from a range of experts and asks penetrating questions about how we treat older people, how we can face one of the greatest social, medical, economic and moral challenges of our times, and what it means to be human.

one of Canada most beloved writers and a master of the short story form, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. While we were researching Ms. Munro’s achievements, we came across this interesting piece of trivia:

> Alice Munro has won the Governor General’s Literary Award – one of Canada’s most prestigious prizes – three times.

> Two Roads author Carrie Snyder was a finalist at the prize with her short story collection THE JULIET STORIES last year

But the connections don’t end there. When DEAR LIFE, the latest collection by Ms. Munro, came out in 2012, Carrie was asked by the National Post to review it. Read her review here: http://bit.ly/17qUFBZ

Hurrah for Canada!

We’re thrilled to announce that we have acquired Girl Runner, the debut novel from Carrie Snyder.

Girl Runner is the story of Aganetha Smart, a pioneering

Olympic athlete who was famous in the 1920s, but now, at age 104, lives in a nursing home, alone and forgotten by history. When her quiet life is disturbed by the unexpected arrival of two young strangers, Aganetha begins to reflect on her childhood in rural Ontario and her struggles to make an independent life for herself in the city. Without revealing who they are, and what they may want from her, the two visitors take Aganetha on an outing from the nursing home. Returning her to the home of her birth, their ulterior motives and their identity are gradually revealed, forcing Aganetha to confront her own secrets and difficult life choices.

Set in the early twentieth century, Girl Runner is an engaging and endearing story about family, ambition, rivalry, athletics, and the dedicated pursuit of one’s passions.

I’m very proud to have a writer of Carrie’s distinction on the Two Roads list – Girl Runner is a brilliantly evocative story of time and place with an unforgettable heroine.

We even get a mention (thanks Carrie!):

The rights to Girl Runner have been sold in the UK (and Australia) to another terrific editor: Lisa Highton, who is the publisher of Two Roads, an imprint of Hodder & Stoughton. Yup. I’m over the moon, and have been re-reading somewhat compulsively the press release Lisa prepared yesterday to announce the acquisition. Kevin and kids are already plotting to hitchhike along on any future tours to the UK.

The book is being published by House of Anansi Press in Canada and we’ll publish in early spring 2015 alongside HarperCollins in the States. This is one of the hot books of Frankfurt Book Fair (which starts today), and foreign rights have been sold in Germany, Italy, France and The Netherlands!

Congrats Carrie!

…the cover for UNDER THE WIDE AND STARRY SKY, the new book by Nancy Horan (and our first 2014 title!)

Under the wide and starry sky Robert Louis Stevenson Nancy HoranThe novel, Nancy’s second after Loving Frank (New York Times bestseller and Richard & Judy Bookclub pick), tells the passionate and turbulent story of Robert Louis Stevenson and his tempestuous American wife, Fanny, a fierce love affair-marked by intense joy and harrowing darkness that spans decades as they travel the world for the sake of his health following their art and dreams.

 

Nancy was in London this weekend and we gave her the very first proof of the book. She looks quite pleased, don’t you think?

Bret Anthony Johnston (copyright Nina Subin) Remember Me Like This - HarvardIt’s with great joy that we can finally announce that Two Roads will publish Bret Anthony Johnston’s debut novel

Remember Me Like This

in July 2014.

A compelling exploration of human morality, the novel is set on the Texan Gulf over one long, hot summer, where abducted teenager Justin Campbell’s reappearance after four years missing feels like a miracle to his family, but also lays bare the effects of his trauma, as the book builds to a

Oh the joy when a book like this comes along. Finding a writer as talented and a storyteller this assured is a gift, and one of the many pleasures of being both a publisher and a reader.

Lisa Highton, Two Roads publisher

I am exceedingly thrilled that Remember Me Like This has found its home with Two Roads. I could not dream up a better publisher for the novel, a novel that is in many ways about the life of a place, its stories and voices.

Bret Anthony Johnston

Bret Anthony Johnston is the author of the award-winning Corpus Christi: Stories, which was described by David Mitchell as ‘a gorgeous accomplished debut’ and named a Best Book of the Year by the Independent and the Irish Times, and the editor of Naming the World: And Other Exercises for the Creative Writer. His work appears in the Atlantic Monthly,

Esquire, The Paris Review, The Best American Short Stories, and elsewhere. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, he’s the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship and a 5 Under 35 honour from the National Book Foundation. He teaches in the Bennington Writing Seminars and at Harvard University, where is the Director of Creative Writing.

We’re not the only one who fell in love with this book. Remember Me Like This has received fantastic advance praise from a vast and varied list of writers:

In this deeply nuanced portrait of an American family, Bret Anthony Johnston fearlessly explores the truth behind a mythic happy ending. In Remember Me Like This, Johnston presents an incisive dismantling of an all too comforting fallacy: that in being found we are no longer lost.

Alice Sebold, author of the Lovely Bones

You could say that this book is ripped from the headlines, but that wouldn’t be fair. Bret Anthony Johnston’s riveting novel picks up where the tabloids leave off, and takes us places even the best journalism can’t go. Remember Me Like This is a wise, moving, and troubling novel about family and identity, and a clear-eyed inventory of loss and redemption.

Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children and The Leftovers

This mesmerizing story of loss and redemption on Texas’s Gulf Coast will take you in and hold you and not let go until it’s done with you, leaving you wiping at your eyes with the kind of soul-gratitude that comes only after experiencing true art.

Andre Dubus III, author of The House of Sand and Fog

First-time author, Ashley Dartnell, is our guest blogger this month. Farangi Girl was published in June

‘Just put your anxiety aside and write the book.’

Ashley DartnellThis was the advice my teacher (the writer Blake Morrison) gave me as I spiralled through yet another cycle of self doubt. I was in the second year of an MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths. I had given up my job to do the course, my husband had just lost his job and my six year old had just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. What Blake was referring to was not any of those problems but my chronic unease about the subject matter of my book. This was despite the fact that I had applied to Goldsmiths after twenty-five years of working in business and media explicitly to write this particular book: an autobiographical memoir of my growing up in Iran during the time of the Shah.

What was causing such disquiet, as Graham Greene so brilliantly put it, was ‘the bitterness leaks again out of my pen.’ I was upset and horrified at how much anger, how much bitterness was flowing out of me. Every day, I would sit at my desk in a trance: lost in the sights, sounds and emotions of my childhood. At the end of the day, after I switched off my computer, if anyone asked me what I had written, I had absolutely no idea. The material was coming from some very deep and well hidden reservoir. The next morning I would read through what I had written in a state of anticipation and despair—the scenes of my childhood were so vivid and often difficult and sad.

And, the secrets—so many secrets! All my life I had successfully avoided thinking about the complicated web of secrets my mother had woven. Now I was untangling the strands of deceit and obfuscation and it was painful.
