Bonus Track: An Epilogue for THE COMFORT OF LIES: “Savannah at 14″

 

Comfort of Lies Epilogue cover

Note: Readers have written, asking what happens to Savannah, who is six years old when “The Comfort of Lies” ends. This epilogue was in the original manuscript—I thought some readers would enjoy seeing how my lovely girl (I adored her every minute of writing the book) made out.

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

Don’t read this before reading THE COMFORT OF LIES, unless you like your ends first!

But the harder he blew the more closely did the traveler wrap his cloak round him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair. Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveler, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on. Aesop’s Fables

THE SECRET LIVES OF BABA SEGI’S WIVES

 

9780061946370


“When Baba Segi awoke with a bellyache for the sixth day in a row, he knew it was time to do something drastic about his fourth wife’s childlessness. He was sure the pain wasn’t caused by hunger or trapped gas; it was from the buildup of months and months of worry.”
