We are honored to welcome back Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Olen Butler with a wonderful new novel, ”The Hot Country.” It’s an exciting tale of intrigue and espionage, set in Mexico in 1914 during that country’s civil war and features a swashbuckling American war correspondent. With high spirits and a thriller pace, Bob Butler’s latest novel is not to be missed. We’ll have first edition copies for you to buy and get signed, too. Butler won the Pulitzer for his story collection ”Good Scent from a Strange Mountain,” and among his best-selling novels are ”Hell: A Novel,” ”A Small Hotel,” ”Mr. Spaceman” and ”They Whisper.”
