Ruth Emmie Lang’s BEASTS OF EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCE

A review of Ruth Emmie Lang’s debut novel Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance, originally published on November 14, 2017 by St. Martin’s Press.

Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance is the debut novel of Ruth Emmie Lang about a boy’s journey to try to find his place in the world. He was just your ordinary orphan-raised-by-wolves who also happened to have mysterious powers. Weylyn was so sweet and well-meaning, but because of his powers, he inadvertently ran the risk of hurting the ones he loved – and so, he chose to isolate himself from the rest of humanity rather than potentially causing others harm. His story was told through the eyes of the people he met on his journey – those he loved, those he helped, and those whose lives he impacted in some way.

A review of Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney, published by St. Martin’s Press on January 17, 2017.

On New Year’s Eve, 1984, Lillian Boxfish sets out into the city she loves: NYC. Even at 85 years old, Lillian still prefers walking to other (and possibly easier) modes of transportation. During her stroll, she meets with a variety of people going about their lives, all while reminiscing about her own past adventures. Lillian was once the highest-paid advertising woman in America while working at R.H. Macy’s, a career that was cut short after marrying the love of her life, having her son Gian, divorce from the said love of her life, and a mental breakdown. But through it all, like the city she so cherished, she lived to see another day.
