Justin Cronin visits VJ Books

July 9
- Have you ever wished that you had picked up that first printing of John Dunning's Booked To Die when it could be had for a mere twenty bucks, or maybe one of these at cover price: Sue Grafton's A is for Alibi, James Lee Burke's Neon Rain, Michael Connelly's Black Echo, Stephen King's Carrie or The Stand - or maybe a full set of Harry Potter first editions?

Well it's not to late to get in on a good deal. The book is Justin Cronin's The Passage. We had the unique privilege of visiting with Justin Cronin late last week, and found him to be an engaging, articulate, and wonderfully charming man who signed stack after stack of books for us late into the evening. We caught up with him after he had already done another major signing, and countless media interviews. To quote him, "it's been quite a ride!"

With The Passage, he has written both a relentlessly suspenseful adventure and an epic chronicle of human endurance in the face of unprecedented catastrophe and unimaginable danger. Its inventive storytelling, masterful prose, and depth of human insight mark it as a crucial and transcendent work of modern fiction. Having already moved into later printings, signed first editions of this exciting new book have already shown considerable appreciation.

Get yours today and you too will join the club of those who got it early!

Justin Cronin and The Passage

From Bill Sheehan's review:
"Sometimes, you can actually believe the hype. A case in point is Justin Cronin's massive new novel, The Passage, which, in the months before its official release, has generated an enormous amount of anticipatory buzz.

Publication rights have been sold in literally dozens of countries. Director Ridley Scott has purchased film rights for a considerable sum, and writers as diverse as Stephen King and Jennifer Egan have been lavish in their praise. The question then arises: Is this a smoke-and-mirrors attempt to create another vacuous publishing "event," or is the novel worthy of the money and attention it has received?

Fortunately for all of us, the answer to the latter question is a resounding Yes. The Passage is absorbing, inventive, and supremely well written, the kind of book that gives commercial success a good name."
