George Szanto will launch his new novel Whatever Lola Wants (Brindle & Glass $19.95) at the library on Gabriola Island on Saturday, October 18 at 2 pm. According to publicity materials: Perched on a cloud high above Mount Washington, Ted tells Lola stories. Lola, once a famous Hollywood bombshell, is still a goddess in the afterlife. Together, Ted and Lola listen to the memories of the mortals, people like Milton and Theresa, conservationists, parents and fighters; “Handy” Johnnie Cochan, self-styled as an ecological leader, but haunted by sadness and fear; and Carney, a specialist in disaster recovery who can’t hold onto love. Whatever Lola Wants is a tale of the immortals; Ted watching and telling tales as Lola listens and dreams, slowly changing with his words. Below the immortals, generations of three mortal families, cycle through joy, tragedy, hope, and loss, their futures bound together by mingled battles and attractions. 9781927366356
