OONA OUT OF ORDER, national bestseller, Good Morning America Book Club pick, and a Boswell favorite, is out in paperback on February 9 and Boswell is celebrating with special free virtual event with Margarita Montimore. Oona Out of Order is a remarkably inventive novel about a woman who lives each year of her life out of order, exploring what it means to be human and live in the moment. For this event, Montimore will be in conversation with Boswellians Jenny Chou and Daniel Goldin.
It’s New Year’s Eve 1982, and Oona Lockhart has her whole life before her. At the stroke of midnight she will turn nineteen, and the year ahead promises to be one of consequence. Should she go to London to study economics, or remain at home in Brooklyn to pursue her passion for music and be with her boyfriend? As the countdown to the New Year begins, Oona faints and awakens thirty-two years in the future in her fifty-one-year-old body. Greeted by a friendly stranger in a beautiful house she’s told is her own, Oona learns that with each passing year she will leap to another age at random. And so begins Oona Out of Order.
If you loved The Immortalists or The Midnight Library, Oona Out of Order is a great book to read next. Boswellian Kay Wosewick calls Oona a “unique, fun, and thought-provoking tale.” And as Jenny Chou says, “For anyone who’s been waiting seventeen years for a novel as engrossing as The Time Traveler’s Wife, this is the book for you! Please note that Oona Out of Order will also be the April selection of our Books & Beer Book Club. Details at https://www.boswellbooks.com/book-clubs-0 .
