An email this morning from Tracy Devine, my delightful and talented editor at Bantam, brought to my attention a China’s Wings excerpt posted by Powell’s Books. Here it is, Saint Patrick’s Day, 1931, which is Chapter One, in its entirety. It’s also here, on the Random House website, where the format is a little cleaner.
And allow me to tip my hat to Powell’s Books. It’s my favorite outing in Portland, Oregon, a veritable cathedral of civilization.
