Are you planning on hitting the Iowa City Book Festival this weekend? We’ll be selling books from presses around the Midwest tomorrow and are excited to be featuring The Wife of Martin Guerre, by Janet Lewis from the Ohio University Press. Based on a notorious trial in sixteenth-century France, this story of Bertrande de Rols is the first of three novels making up Janet Lewis's Cases of Circumstantial Evidence suite (featuring The Wife of Martin Guerre, The Trail of Soren Qvist, and The Ghost of Monsieur Scarron).
