Book Talk and Signing with Bestselling Author Susan Crandall



Greenville, SC, June 10, 2015 - From Susan Crandall, the bestselling and award-winning author of Whistling Past the Graveyard, comes The Flying Circus (Gallery, hardcover, $26.00, on sale 7/7/15), an adventure tale about two daredevils and a farm boy who embark on the journey of a lifetime across America's heartland in the Roaring Twenties. Susan will be discussing her new book at Fiction Addiction on Friday, July 17th, at 2:00 pm.


There are two ticket options for the event: The $27.56 ticket admits two to the event and includes one copy of The Flying Circus.

Tickets and books may be purchased online, at the store, or by calling Fiction Addiction at 864-675-0540.


Set in the rapidly changing world of 1920s America, this is a story of three people from very different backgrounds: Henry "Schuler" Jefferson, son of German immigrants from Midwestern farm country; Cora Rose Haviland, a young woman of privilege whose family has lost their fortune; and Charles "Gil" Gilchrist, an emotionally damaged WWI veteran pilot. Set adrift by life-altering circumstances, they find themselves bound together by need and torn apart by blind obsessions and conflicting goals. Each one holds a secret that, if exposed, would destroy their friendship. But their journey of friendship and self-discovery has a price -- and one of them won't be able to survive it.


As they crisscross the heartland, exploring the rapidly expanding role of aviation from barnstorming to bootlegging, from a flying circus to the dangerous sport of air racing, the three companions form a makeshift family. It's a one-of-a-kind family, with members as adventurous as they are vulnerable, and as fascinating as they are flawed. But whatever adventure -- worldly or private -- they find themselves on, they're guaranteed to be a family you won't forget.


Fiction Addiction owner Jill Hendrix loved Susan's previous book, Whistling Past the Graveyard, which she says "will be devoured by bookclubs and will cause every parent who finishes it to immediately find and hug their children."
