Cover reveal! Wish You Were Here – the new novel by internationally bestselling author Jodi Picoult
More about the book!
Jonathan Ball Publishers is very excited to reveal the cover for Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult!
A poignant tale of longing and discovery from the bestselling author of The Book of Two Ways, Wish You Were Here follows a young woman whose carefully planned life is thrown off course by a pandemic, as she finds herself on a romantic holiday – alone.
The book will be released on 30 November 2021.
Jodi Picoult says:
‘Humans mark tragedy. Everyone remembers where they were when Kennedy was shot, when the Twin Towers fell, and the last thing they did before the world shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In those early days, I was so anxious that I couldn’t concentrate on anything – which meant that I couldn’t distract myself with my work. I couldn’t write. I couldn’t even read … I started working on a novel, attempting to jog my muscle memory and somehow my brain remembered how to craft a book. But the whole time I was working on that story, I was wondering: how are we going to chronicle this pandemic? Who will do it? How do we tell the tale of how the world shut down, and why, and what we learned? I hope Wish You Were Here does some of that.’
Jodi Picoult is the author of 25 internationally bestselling novels, including My Sister’s Keeper, The Storyteller and Small Great Things. She has also co-written two young adult books with her daughter Samantha van Leer, Between the Lines and Off the Page. She lives in New Hampshire, USA.
