Shine Until Tomorrow, Malden’s latest novel, is a time-travel tale that takes its troubled teenage protagonist from present-day San Francisco back to the “Summer of Love” in 1967. A fun, touching and insightful novel, it tells the story of a girl obsessed with the future who must visit the past to learn to live in the present.
Keshishian’s A Tale of Two Wise Fools is set in early-1970s Los Angeles. It brings together a 19-year-old French expat trying to get over his first true love and keep his passion for music alive and a solitary, alcoholic, 70-year-old American. These two lost souls spend many nights in a bar discussing life, love, and the tumultuous times in which they live. Ultimately, the men must decide what to do when presented with newfound hope.
“Something’s Happening Here” is sponsored by The Busby Group, one of LA’s leading marketing communication agencies for books and authors. For media inquiries, contact Jian Huang at email@example.com or (310) 439-9400.
