Mary Beth Keane Asks Again

I'm excited for fellow author Mary Beth Keane, who recently shared her book, Ask Again, Yes, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

I've been reading Mary Beth Keane's fiction for years, and she's even read some of mine. In fact, she endorsed Tracks: A Novel in Stories saying: 

In Tracks, Goodman manages to capture the complicated push and pull of family, of friends, of history, of life, how it bears down on each of us, pulling us apart while simultaneously pushing us together. His characters are, in turn, compassionate, indifferent, bitter, sympathetic, wistful, and most of all, real. I recognized parts of myself in each one of them, and I imagine this is exactly what Goodman intended. Tracks is a wonderful debut."

Her latest, Ask Again, Yes made NYT's bestsellers list, was featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and is now in development as a mini-series!

What more could an author ask for?
