Any new speaking engagements? How about in August or Sept 2010?
Would love to know if you may be coming to Georgia for a book signing? I would love to meet you. Snow Angels was an amazing book, I am currently reading Last Night At The Lobster and I am planning on buying Songs for the Missing today.
Is Mr. O’Nan planning any speaking engagements for the San Francisco Bay Area? Would love to attend.
It’s October 23, twenty years later, and it is pouring rain in San Francisco just like it was in Ithaca. Hello to you and Trudy from LC and JH
Will you be stopping in CT this year? Can’t wait to read ‘Emily, Alone’
Mr. O’Nan–I discovered your novel Emily, Alone and loved it. I’ll be seeking out your other titles soon.
However, I have a bone to pick with you, sir! In one scene in Emily, Alone, you refer to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as “mauling Shostakovich”–an image that, as one who appreciates classical music, I must seriously protest. For at least a couple of decades, the CSO has been regarded as one of the world’s great orchestras. To include a detail like that–even if you intended it as Emily’s opinion–is inauthentic.
Your interview with Nancy Pearl here i Seattle was so great. I can’t wait to watch it again in order to take notes this time. I was fascinated with your writing process, how you approach your characters and the narrative. Wishing you could come to our monthly genre meeting where we discuss the four portals into a novel: story, character, setting and language. You are a master at all four. I enjoyed your reading at Seattle Public Library as well. It was wonderful to meet you. Looking forward to seeing you in P-burgh.
All the best,
Finished Wish You Were Here this morning and now reading Emily, Alone. I love this family and their idiosyncrasies; I understand Emily more in Emily, Alone. I will now read every novel I can find that you have written because I love your style. Hmm. wish there was more from the Maxwell clan.
Wish You Were Here is just one of those books that you dont want to end……thank you at least for the sequel, Emily, Alone……….. Thank you for my reading pleasure!!
Poplar Bluff Missouri
I just finished Emily, Alone for our little book club here in Pittsburgh. I live on Sheridan Ave. I really enjoyed the book. Emily reminds me of me. My sister in law picked it she lives out in the wilds of Swissvale. Hope to read more in the future.
I loved loved loved Emily, alone!!!! Please will you write a sequel to it? I need to know what happens to Emily and Rufus!
WOW! Emily Alone, you literally took me home again. My daily trip home after getting off the street car on Bryant St., 1952 – 57, took me up Grafton St. to Heberton where I lived. I suspect that Emily lived in one of the houses similar to Rev. Earl Meyers’ and was a neighbor to Carolyn’s house. How absolutely magnificent this experience was for me in the year of my retirement from teaching to relive so many memories of my youth. Will you be appearing anywhere near Westbrook, CT in the near future?
How can we send a copy of O’nan’s work to him to have him sign? I live in a small farm town in Missouri and don’t have the ability to travel to the big cities where he does appearances. I love his work so much and this would mean the world to me.
You can send the books to:

Last Night at the Lobster has been on my mind lately. Thinking on how much I enjoyed that has led me to pick up The Odds tonight ( I work in a library). I hope I will enjoy it just as much.
Just read your take on bourbon in WSJ’s Message in a Bottle column. Been there done that with Pappy. Weller sounds like the heir apparent. As you suggested, I am going to stick with my half bottle of Knob’s Creek and toast the Dodgers quest for top dog in the World Series. Thanks for sharing.
I think I have read all your books; just finished Ocean State, which I could barely put down. When are you coming to DC?
Dear Stewart: When, oh when, are you coming to Ann Arbor? You have some major fans here and we would love to see you in person! We have read pretty much everything you’ve ever written and just keep waiting for you to notice that we’re a big book town here and show up. So you’re doing a European tour–wow!–but we love you right here. You could drive from Pittsburgh to AA easily. Please come!
