Waiting on Wednesday: Abbeville

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Abbeville by Jack Fuller
Publisher: Unbridled Books
ISBN: 978-1-932961-90-4
Available: August 2009

A story of our time. A novel for all times.

When the economy collapsed, it threatened everything George Bailey held dear. Returning to the little Central Illinois farm town where his grandfather had first prospered and then fallen into ruin during the Great Depression, George seeks out the details of this remarkable man's rise, fall and spiritual rebirth, hoping to find a way to recover himself. Abbeville is the story of a man caught by the tidal wave of economic disaster, and the meaning he finds in his quest for personal survival is as timely as today's news.

He has been a legal affairs writer, a war correspondent in Vietnam, a Washington correspondent, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer. A graduate of NOrthwestern University and Yale Law School, he lives in Chicago wth his wife, Debra Moskovits. He has two children, Tim and Kate.

I hadn't heard of this one. It sounds good. Isn't George Bailey the character played by James Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life??? Interesting.
