Fiona Maazel's Woke Up Lonely
I really enjoyed Maazel's first novel, Last Last Chance, and so was super excited when Twitter alerted me to this new one--and it's just as weird and wonderful as the first. It involves the leader of a movement that is more than a little cultish, and which is rumored to be a terrorist organization; his ex-wife (and mother of his child), who actually works for the government on tracking him, and who is under major pressure; the four people she employs to bring things to a head . . . and a bunch of other things. Really interesting writing here--Maazel is clearly having fun--and I loved the action-packed and occasionally silly and occasionally sweet plot. All-around, a very fun read. A-.
A review copy was provided by the publisher (Thanks, Michael!). This book will be released in April.
