Weird Habits of Famous Writers: List List #297

This week’s List List is sponsored by Oliver Loving by Stefan Merrill Block, from Flatiron Books.

A family in crisis, a town torn apart, and the boy who holds the secret has been cocooned in a coma for ten years.

A moving meditation on the transformative power of grief and love, a slyly affectionate look at the idiosyncrasies of family, and an emotionally-charged page-turner, Stefan Merill Block’s Oliver Loving is an extraordinarily original novel that ventures into the unknowable and returns with the most fundamental truths.
