Roland Merullo appears at a Brookline Booksmith event tomorrow evening.

To continue the thread of new hardcover novels that I'm dying to read, I thumbed through A Little Love Story by Roland Merullo, author of the acclaimed Revere Beach Boulevard on my last visit to Borders. His latest has received outstanding reviews, including one from the Washington Post. (Although a link won't get you there, google the title and Washington Post.) The plot: Jake, a carpenter in his thirties, lost his girlfriend in the September 11 disaster. After a year of aimlessness, he meets a woman who happens to be in the final stages of cystic fibrosis and who is determined to grasp a chance at love before it's no longer possible.
