National Book Award Winner Jaimy Gordon!


We are extremely pleased to welcome the new National Book Award Winner, Jaimy Gordon, to Mclean and Eakin.

Jaimy is a professor at Western Michigan, and we were pleasantly surprised, here at the store, first to see her book win the National Book Award, and second, to be able to host her in March.

Join us on March 9th, from 6:30 to 7:30, for a great conversation and a signing.


"Lord of Misrule thunders through the gritty, desperate world of low-stakes claiming races in Indian Mound Downs, West Virginia. Written in language that burns and soothes like good whiskey, one half of the enjoyment of the story comes with the resonant, common-sense and superstitious rural language. She builds a whole world through her characters' tongues. The other half is the plain excitement that comes with the racetrack. Pounding hooves, back-room dealings, and shadowy duplicity make this a must-read."
