"Waiting On" Wednesday: Touch

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Touch by Alexi Zentner
W.W. Norton and Co, April 4, 2011


In Sawgamet, a north woods boomtown gone bust, the cold of winter breaks the glass of the schoolhouse thermometer, and the dangers of working in the cuts are overshadowed by the mysteries and magic lurking in the woods. Stephen, a pastor, is at home on the eve of his mother's funeral, thirty years after the mythic summer his grandfather returned to the town in search of his beloved but long-dead wife. And like his grandfather, Stephen is forced to confront the losses of his past.

Touch introduces you to a world where monsters and witches oppose singing dogs and golden caribou, where the living and the dead part and meet again in the crippling beauty of winter and the surreal haze of summer.

What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday?


  1. This one sounds intriguing...stories set in the woods always have that extra something....

    Here's MY WOW

  2. Sounds delicious creepy, and just a little bit daring. I might have to check this out.

    I have 3 picks in my WOW this week . . . just because I'm greedy. :)

  3. Sounds creepy and kind of beautiful all at the same time. I love the cover.

  4. Sounds mysterious and intriguing... and I love the cover, the font is so neat. Great choice.
