Chris Cleave: Everyone Brave Is Forgiven says
Back once again to the Seattle Public Central Library where he and his novel, Little Bee, were among the most winning of Seattle Reads participants, Chris Cleave is here from his home overseas to read from and sign his extraordinary new novel, Everyone Brave is Forgiven (Simon & Schuster). Set as World War II begins, it tells the story of people whose lives are changed by each other, and by what befalls them - and everyone else.

“Real, engaging characters, based loosely on Cleave’s own grandparents, come alive on the page. Insightful, stark, and heartbreaking, Cleave’s latest novel portrays the irrepressible hopefulness that can arise in the face of catastrophe.”—Publishers Weekly.

“Intensely felt…Full of insight and memorably original phrasings, the story is leavened by sardonic humor… Cleave paints an emotion-filled portrait of a damaged city with its inequities amplified by war and of courageous individuals whose connections to one another make them stronger.”—Booklist.
