Wake is Halfax's top beach-reading pick

No, not Don Halifax -- the main character in my novel Rollback -- but the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, the major daily newspaper in the capital city of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, which starts its list entitled "Beach Reading: Fiction Picks for Summer," compiled by David Pitt, with my Wake, published in Canada under Penguin's Viking imprint.

The write-up on Wake concludes:
Sawyer has a knack for taking realistic characters and plunking them down in stories that might seem far-fetched, if they weren’t so vividly imagined and elegantly told. He’s an excellent storyteller, and you catch him here at his very best.
You can read the whole review -- and the rest of the Chronicle Herald's summer picks -- here.

I agree with the sentiment, but there is NO WAY I am taking my precious signed hardcover to the beach!
