Good Reads: Novels By Chris Bohjalian


This Spring, George Street Playhouse will present the world premiere of The Club, a new play by New York Times Bestselling Author Chris Bohjalian. This week, we'll be spotlighting three of Bohjalian's works, encouraging our readers to... well, read some more! You can find these stories at your favorite bookstore! Check out the selections from below, along with a brief synopsis:


Midwives: On an icy winter night in an isolated house in rural Vermont, a seasoned midwife named Sibyl Danforth takes desperate measures to save a baby’s life. She performs an emergency cesarean section on a mother she believes has died of a stroke. But what if Sibyl’s patient wasn’t dead—and Sybil inadvertently killed her? As Sibyl faces the antagonism of the law, the hostility of traditional doctors, and the accusations of her own conscience, Midwives engages, moves, and transfixes us as only the very best novels ever do. Just a few years ago, George Street Playhouse presented a stage adaptation — click here to see more!


The Flight Attendant: In his twentieth book (and now a series on MAX), Chris Bohjalian took riveting storytelling to a new cruising altitude. A mesmerizing tale of denial and revelation, The Flight Attendant novel opened in an opulent hotel suite overseas, where Cassandra Bowden awoke to find herself in bed with a dead man. What will happen to her in season two? New city, new job, and even more secrets.


The Lioness: Tanzania, 1964. When Katie Barstow, A-list actress, and her new husband, David Hill, decide to bring their Hollywood friends to the Serengeti for their honeymoon, they envision giraffes gently eating leaves from the tall acacia trees, great swarms of wildebeests crossing the Mara River, and herds of zebras storming the sandy plains. Their glamorous guests—including Katie’s best friend, Carmen Tedesco, and Terrance Dutton, the celebrated Black actor who stars alongside Katie in the highly controversial film Tender Madness—will spend their days taking photos, and their evenings drinking chilled gin and tonics back at camp, as the local Tanzanian guides warm water for their baths. The wealthy Americans expect civilized adventure: fresh ice from the kerosene-powered ice maker, dinners of cooked gazelle meat, and plenty of stories to tell over lunch back on Rodeo Drive.
