Have you ever read a book by Ann Patchett? If you have then you've found her work interesting and worth the read. How about considering her newest book, Commonwealth, available in hard copy, audio and ebook. If you don't know anything about this author then at the bottom of the page you will find her bio.
Patchett is a champion of the literary world. She’s published six novels, three works of nonfiction and owns her own independent bookstore, Parnasus, in Nashville. This fall, Patchett will set off on a 30-city book tour.
This book, Commonwealth, is a first for Patchett. She says, “I felt like with my previous novels I had been sprinting for a long time and I just thought: I need to stretch and open up.”
Commonwealth focuses on 10 main characters from two very different families and follows them across 50 years. Her experiences with her own blended family and her move from California to the South serve as the most obvious blueprint, and readers familiar with her nonfiction will recognize many autobiographical details.
She insists that waiting to write her most personal story was one of the best career choices she’s made. Commonwealth is an all-American family saga and after you read it you might agree. Patchett was so sure she wasn’t going to write anything that appeared autobiographical but here it is. Enjoy.
