Michelle Gable is the New York Times Bestselling author of A PARIS APARTMENT, I'LL SEE YOU IN PARIS, THE BOOK OF SUMMER, and THE SUMMER I MET JACK.

Michelle grew up in San Diego and attended The College of William & Mary, where she majored in accounting, as most aspiring writers do. After a twenty-year career in finance, Michelle now writes full-time. She lives in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California, with her husband, two daughters, and what is quickly becoming a menagerie: one cat, one bunny, and a lab/jindo mix recently rescued from the dog meat trade in Thailand.

It was not intentional, and just how the stories ended up coming together. But now I kind of wish I'd planned it that way. ;)(less)

Hi Shel!
I hadn't seen this earlier--sorry for the delay! Yes, wherever possible I try to visit. You'll notice that my characters tend to live in nice places. ;) I'd always wanted to write about Nantucket and when I saw the Vanity Fair article about the homes in Sconset, I knew this would be my angle. I've been several times and two summers ago my family and I actually stayed in a house ON Baxter Road. Of course, on the non-cliff side. Glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing that book. (less)

This book was excellent, and unlike anything I've read. Great characters, strong writing, and a story that I was thinking about constantly (still am). Also, the title makes a good mantra. ;) Never did I imagine myself googling black rat snakes, and I ...more

What a gem of a book. Takes place leading up to and during the French Revolution. Absolutely delighted by every page of this and it's unlike any work of historical fiction I've read. Fun side note, the author is married to Elizabeth McCracken. For hi ...more

Believe the hype! Tackles some very tough issues, but there are some full-on, laugh-out-loud moments. Would make a great bookclub pick. Loved the Philadelphia setting.

My first David Lodge book--won't be my last. Written 30 years ago but still hilarious, engaging, and utterly relevant. Loved it.

An unexpected gem of a book. I only listen to nonfiction on audiobook and this was recommended and I'm so glad I clicked purchase. The narrative has been that Jack the Ripper killed prostitutes, but this is an oversimplification, if not outright mist ...more

Really lovely read. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the setting(s), and the time period. The couple of twists are predictable, if not outright inevitable, but if you're hankering for historical fiction that's not WWII, this would be a great choi ...more

Gorgeous story of one man's coming of age (and into older age, no less). Well done and the characters are fantastic. This book is not perfect--it relies on coincidence so much that it's almost comical. I get that he's perhaps commenting that the worl ...more
