Last Call for the March 19 Editors’ Picks Webcast, Plus a Sneak Peek at the Books

A woman with alternate lives. A former Indian army captain’s troubled past. A frozen man reanimated. A therapist haunted by renascent memories of a cult. Women who embrace that sparkly engagement ring—or not. Very rich Asians. A creepy young killer. A poet who has loved and lost, owing to war. An actress aching for a break. Teenage girls sailing the waters off Red Hook. A man in a car and a ride to hell. And a scorned wife enjoying nights on the town. These are some of the characters you will meet if you join us for the first Editors’ Picks webcast, Tuesday, March 19, at 3:00 pm ET. Remember, if you’re busy, you can register now and watch the archived webcast at your convenience. Here’s the registration link. Am I getting too excited about this?
