I feel compelled to write about Brunonia Barry, the author of The Lace Reader and two subsequent novels. I read The Lace Reader years ago and enjoyed it very much. But that’s not the reason for the compulsion. I met a man who told me he worked in marketing for Harper Collins and some other publishers, marketing various authors. “The most famous author,” he said, “was Brunonia Barry.” Because I recognized the name, I was impressed, but didn’t think any more about it.
The very next day I had an e-mail from Goodreads with a letter to readers from Brunonia Barry. I love coincidence, so wanted to write this short post to publicize Barry and her books.
