Don Winslow, a great bestselling Southern California author, but also a great friend of the store, dropped by Warwick’s July 19th, 2010, to read and discuss his latest novel, Savages. Don talked about what influenced him and the inspiration he took from the filmmakers of the French New Wave for the style and structure of Savages, with its short jump cuts and fast pace. He also took questions about such things as his upcoming prequel to the legendary novel Shibumi by the late Trevanian and shared with the packed house the pitfalls of sharing the name Don Winslow with an author of, shall we say, downmarket adult fare. Ahem.
Signed copies of Savages, Winslow’s blazingly fast-paced crime noir of the SoCal/Mexican border drug trade, are still available for sale at Warwick’s.
This is the Story of a Happy Marriage- Ann Patchett "Read Ann Patchett’s collection of essays as you would a stack of letters from an old friend: Carefully, tenderly, and with the nagging suspicion that the bearer of these gifts may perhaps be a better person than you are. So effortless is her writing style, it seems there is nothing between her imagination & her pen. Revealing, touching, at times hilarious, & always personal, these essays will make you feel like Ann Patchett is your best friend!"-AHD & Janet
