Our Lady of the Prairie and The Standard Grand cover images

Husband and wife Thisbe Nissen and Jay Baron Nicorvo join us at Books Inc. Opera Plaza for a discussion of their respective critically-acclaimed novels, Our Lady of the Prairie and The Standard Grand

Set in the seething political climate of a contentious election, Thisbe Nissen's new novel is sexy, smart, and razor-sharp--a freight train barreling through the heart of the land and the land of the heart.

Jay Baron Nicorvo's The Standard Grand confronts a glaring cultural omission: the absence of women in our war stories. Like the best of its characters--who aspire more to goodness than greatness--this American novel hopes to darn a hole or two in the frayed national fabric.
