DEBUT, LMR, Michelle Lauren Addo @MichelleAddo, "THE SECRET LIFE OF ALBERT ENTWISTLE by Matt Cain, The retirement of a shy, closeted postman creates an opportunity to find a lost love, embrace his true self, connect with his community, & experience life's adventure." -- From the publishers summary, "•AN LGBTQ+ "MAN CALLED OVE": Like the works of Fredrik Backman, Albert Entwistle is a story about finding human connection amid loneliness, as an older, somewhat isolated character receives a second chance to put the past behind him and create a new life for himself. The novel also highlights the importance of the gay scene to the gay community in how different Albert's life could have been if he'd had access to an active, thriving gay scene when he was younger."

HOT, ADULT DEBUT, Jenna Friebel @jenna_friebel, "A for-sure-will-be-on-my-2022-favorites title got pushed till May, so more time for you all to read it in advance! YERBA BUENA by Nina LaCour" -- DEC., Carol Ann Tack @Carolanntack, "I read YERBA BUENA in two days and wished I hadn't rushed through this remarkable story of love and family...it made my heart sing." -- OCT, Jenna Friebel @jenna_friebel, "If I could rave about only one novel right now, it'd be YERBA BUENA by Nina LaCour- her adult debut is like Sally Rooney in terms of character study/ relationships focus, but with the sparse yet poetic prose LaCour is known for from her YA books. And it's queer"! -- LJ Prepub Alert, "Sara Foster flees home at age 16 and eventually ends up as a popular (if slightly mysterious) bartender at the Los Angeles restaurant Yerba Buena. When directionless undergraduate Emilie Dubois takes a job arranging flowers at the restaurant, the connection between her and Sara sizzles. But can love conquer all, including the troublesome past? A first adult novel from Printz Award-winning YA author LaCour; with a 150,000-copy first printing."
