One of my absolute favorite novels of 2012 was Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick. I had the opportunity to meet him and have him sign my copy of the book at BEA in June. I had loved A Reliable Wife so much that I couldn’t wait to read this book. It most definitely lived up to my expectations.
Heading Out to Wonderful is now available in paperback from Algonquin Books. As much as I treasure my signed hardcover copy, I must admit that I love this cover. It captures the mood of this book so perfectly. I think this novel would make a great selection for book clubs. The characters are complex and their relationships provide so much to discuss. I still think regularly about Charlie and Sam’s friendship. If you’re a book club member or not, now is the time to read this book if you haven’t already.
To celebrate the paperback release, Algonquin Books has offered me three copies to giveaway. Entering the giveaway is simple. Leave a comment here by Friday, March 1st. I’ll announce the three lucky winners on Saturday. Good luck on capturing a copy of this great read for yourself!
