Naseem Rakha Only American on New Richard & Judy Book Club List

Rakha won the 2010 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, and will be interviewed on the club website. The Crying Tree has been re-outfitted with a new cover in light of the book club. The book trailer is embedded above.

Richard & Judy’s Book Club has often been called the UK equivalent to Oprah’s Book Club. Since its 2004 founding, the club’s titles have sold more than 10 million copies.
