Waiting on Wednesday: The Late, Lamented Sally Marx





Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.



I noticed The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow as I was browsing Chapters/Indigo. From the author's website:

Molly Marx led an enviable life—until she was found dead along the bank of the Hudson River. A young wife and mother, Molly now finds herself in The Duration, where, with the help of a refreshingly unorthodox guide, she can observe the friends and family she left behind: her plastic surgeon husband who even in mourning can’t control his wandering eye, the handsome colleague she found irresistible, a fiercely competitive twin sister, her controlling mother-in-law, a loyal but confused friend, and—most important—her purest love, a three-year-old daughter. As Molly watches them try to untangle the events leading to her mysterious end, she relives her past and learns the fates of those she cherished most (and least).

Exploring marriage, fidelity, friendship, family, and mortality, The Late, Lamented Molly Marx is a playful yet tender love story about a flawed but charming woman, forced—better late than never—to take responsibility for the choices in her complicated life.


Published by Random House Publishing Group, this book is coming out in trade paperback on June 8th. It sounds like a good summer read!

I know this is a little late, but would you like to have my copy? It's a hardcover copy and I don't want it anymore. You're more than welcome to have it. =)
