Jojo Moyes 

When: Sat., Jan. 12, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free

"When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it," began TheNew York Times' January 4 review of Me Before You. "I wanted to reread it." Which is about the biggest compliment you can get from a book reviewer, and it is, by all accounts, well deserved: Already quite popular in the UK, the novel -- which revolves around a down-on-her-luck young woman and her angry, emotionally isolated, newly quadriplegic boss, though it spins out in interesting and ambitious ways from its slightly treacly premise -- is primed to be both the first transatlantic literary hit of 2013 and one of the better-reviewed books of the nascent year. See Moyes before the book blows thoroughly up at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 LaSalle Ave., Oakland) on Saturday, Jan. 12. 7 p.m., free.
