Timing is everything—but the timing of this newly released bestseller from longtime Austin resident Lawrence Wright is pretty wild.

The New York Post calls the Pulitzer Prize-winning author’s latest book, The End of October, “an eerily prescient novel about a devastating virus that begins in Asia before going global … page-turner that has the earmarks of an instant bestseller.”

Wright is a staff writer for The New Yorker, a playwright, a screenwriter, and the author of ten books of nonfiction, including The Looming Tower, Going Clear, and God Save Texas, and one previous novel, God’s Favorite.

In this riveting medical thriller, Dr. Henry Parsons, an unlikely but appealing hero, races to find the origins and cure of a mysterious new killer virus as it brings the world to its knees.

Wild, right? We told you! Order it online at BookPeople and you’ll be in for a fascinating page turner, that couldn’t be more relevant to our times.
