California by Edan Lepucki
Between the Covers welcomes Edan Lepucki, author of the debut novel, California.
The novel became a publishing phenomenon after it was recommended by author Sherman Alexie on The Colbert Report on June 4, 2014. In a conversation about the current Amazon vs. Hachette corporate publishing dispute, Steven Colbert encouraged readers to purchase the novel directly from Portland's local Powell's Books. The plug caused a media sensation and the novel debuted at #3 on the New York Times bestseller list. (Colbert Show link below.)
