Waiting on Wednesday: Ways to Disappear by Idra Novey

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Ways to Disappear by Idra Novey



From Goodreads:
A debut novel about the disappearance of a famous Brazilian novelist and the young translator who turns her life upside down to follow her author's trail. 

Deep in gambling debt, the celebrated Brazilian writer Beatriz Yagoda is last seen holding a suitcase and a cigar and climbing into an almond tree. She abruptly vanishes.

In snowy Pittsburgh, her American translator Emma hears the news and, against the wishes of her boyfriend and Beatriz's two grown children, flies immediately to Brazil. There, in the sticky, sugary heat of Rio, Emma and her author's children conspire to solve the mystery of Yagoda's curious disappearance and staunch the colorful demands of her various outstanding affairs: the rapacious loan shark with a zeal for severing body parts, and the washed-up and disillusioned editor who launched Yagoda's career years earlier.

Idra Novey's exhilarating debut is an international romp: a madcap blend of mystery, romance, noir, and humor. 
Something about this reminds me of my all time favorite, Donna Tartt.  I'm not usually one who discovers debuts but I am excited to read this one!  Ways to Disappear is scheduled for release on February 9, 2016, and you can pre-order here!!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  2. This sounds like a great story, very different than what is out there. And you're right, a little Donna Tart-ish. :-) Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful rest of your week.
