Kerri's book pick this week is "Nate in Venice" by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo.
Instead of Random House, Russo's usual publisher, "Nate in Venice" was released by Byliner, a company that publishes digital-only short stories, novellas, and non-fiction meant to be read in under two hours.
Here's how Byliner describes the book:
"On their first night in Venice, the tour group in Richard Russo's brilliant new novella gather for dinner. The title character, a professor who recently retired from a small New England college, is trying to relearn social graces after a year of self-imposed solitude. With his overbearing older brother at the table, it's not an easy task."
