Hancock Park resident Julia Claiborne Johnson’s book, “Be Frank with Me, is available for sale today at Chevalier’s books. Johnson’s debut novel is generating lots of impressive buzz in the literary community  — Amazon today named it one of its Best Books of the Month and calls Johnson “a sparkling talent.” Critics say the book is witty and clever…and anyone who knows Julia can understand why.

“Johnson’s magnificently poignant, funny, and wholly original debut goes beyond page-turner status. Readers will race to the next sentence. And the next. Her charming, flawed, quietly courageous characters, each wonderfully different, demand a second reading while we impatiently await the author’s second work.” — Library Journal (starred review)

Congratulations to Julia on this very impressive result of her five-year effort to write her first novel. We are looking forward to an upcoming author event at Chevalier’s later this spring. In the meantime, we will be reading our signed copy (you can get one at Chevalier’s) this weekend.
