There’s still time to read John Straley’s The Big Both Ways, a featured Alaskan book this fall at 49 Writers. In online book club format, you’re invited to stop by 49 Writers on November 1, post your comments, and read comments left by others.

I’m nearly finished with this newest book of Straley’s, and while not his typical mystery, it’s definitely worth the read. You’ll meet quite a few characters in the early chapters. Once I got acquainted with Annabelle and her yellow bird, Buddy, I was hooked. The novel earned a couple of starred reviews, a notable achievement for Alaska’s former writer laureate and for his publisher, Alaska Northwest Books.
