The US publication day for the touching and unforgettable debut Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, is finally here! We are over the moon for Gail, and there will be buzz aplenty in the New York offices of Penguin Random House, as Pam Dorman and her team at Pamela Dorman Books/Viking celebrate the big day.
Having been sold in 27 territories, the book has already truly won the hearts of fellow authors and readers across the globe over the past few months. Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author, found Eleanor Oliphant “a truly original literary creation: funny, touching, and unpredictable. Her journey out of dark shadows is expertly woven and absolutely gripping“, and another New York Times bestselling author, Paula McClain, described it as “Deft, compassionate and deeply moving–Honeyman’s debut will have you rooting for Eleanor with every turning page. I loved this story”.
We also love this wonderful quote from The Associated Press, and shared by The Washington Post: “Honeyman’s craft with prose is strikingly effective and utterly smart… Perfectly paced, odd, shocking and hilarious, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a fascinating story about loneliness, hope, tragedy and humanity. Honeyman’s delivery is wickedly good, and Eleanor won’t leave you anytime soon.”
Welcome to the world Eleanor, and massive congratulations on a very special day Gail!
