Disappeared by CJ Box

Mar 23, 2018

Wyoming author CJ Box has published 17 Joe Pickett novels since 2001. With very sympathetic characters, taut plots, plausible villains and lucid descriptions of his native state, each book has outsold any previous one, adding up to more than 10 million altogether. Mr. Box has a new Joe Pickett novel to be released next week called The Disappeared. I spoke with CJ Box as his hype machine revved into gear.

Chloe Benjamin about her new bestseller, and Kim Nuzzo about portraying an American icon.

Picture how your life might be if you knew the day you would die. How would that affect the way you live that day, or for that matter, your entire life leading up to that day? Would you ignore it? Would you practice a casual shuck n jive? Would you indulge in a heedless hedonism? Would you embrace the love in your life or would you shiver in cold fear and loathing? Chloe Benjamin’s new novel The Immortalists deals with these and other questions. Chloe definitely avoided the sophomore slump with this, her second work of fiction, a New York Times bestseller. I spoke with Chloe earlier this week about The Immortalists.
