Bookseller Praise:
Library Love Fest:

“My respect for Paulette Jiles grows with every novel she writes, and News of the World is her best work yet . . . She writes with great clarity, understanding, and a forgiving heart.” 
– Nancy Pearl, librarian

News of the World has everything. Stupendous writing, characters that get under your skin and burrow deep into your heart, great pacing, and an ending that makes you cry with joy and relief. . . . I feel sorry for the book I read next. News of the World is a hard act to follow.”
– Janet Lockhart, Wake County Public Library, Raleigh, NC

”This Western is not to be missed by Jiles’s fans
and lovers of Texan historical fiction."

Perhaps it's the unusual trim size, but it reminded me of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Tinkers by Paul Harding. I say that because it's a relatively short, contained novel, beautifully written and with not a wasted scene or sentence. It's the kind of book you not only can read in a weekend, but you want to stay up until you finish it. And all ages, men and women, will equally respond to it.”  – Michael Morrison, President and Publisher, HarperCollins Publishers
