Best-selling author Faith Sullivan introduces her novel 'Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse'

Throughout her life, Nell Stillman has struggled to find meaning in an increasingly chaotic world. A complicated marriage to a boorish husband; an early widowhood spent longing for her congressman lover; the loss of her child, a shell shocked WWI hero her road has not been easy. But somehow she manages to find moments of grace, more often than not through the genial voice of P.G. Wodehouse, the beloved British novelist. Spanning the first half of the twentieth century, "Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse" celebrates the power of great novels from Austen to Chekhov to transform, console, and teach us the value of friendship and love. 

We first traveled to Harvester, Minnesota, twenty-five years ago in the bookclub favorite and "New York Times" best-selling novel, "The Cape Ann." This new book, which brings us home to that small town on the prairie along with all of the wonderful characters who live there, is sure to be a classic."

Faith Sullivan is the author of seven award-winning novels including the national bestseller " The Cape Ann." A "demon gardener, flea marketer, and feeder of birds," Sullivan was born and raised in southern Minnesota. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband.
