Rumors of a second novel from Alice Sebold have swirled for a few weeks now but USA TODAY confirms that the author of THE LOVELY BONES will be back on the publishing landscape. According to Little, Brown‘s fall catalog, the novel, due for publication on October 15, tells the story of a woman who “crosses a terrible boundary,” and a big clue is likely the book’s opening line: “When all is said and done, killing my mother came easily.” The print run is an eye-popping 750,000 copies, with no doubt galleys of the novel will disappear very, very quickly at BEA – where Sebold will be a featured speaker.
