Book Sense: Collaborator of Bethlehem a Top 20 Pick

The paperback edition of The Collaborator of Bethlehem has been selected by independent bookstores as a Top Twenty Book Sense pick for January. A flyer including the twenty titles selected for January will be distributed to all Book Sense stores (this is a network of over 1,000 independent bookshops), featuring a cover image and a quote from a bookseller praising the book. It’s terrific word of mouth for this new edition of my book. Here’s what the flyer will say:

THE COLLABORATOR OF BETHLEHEM, by Matt Beynon Rees (Mariner, $13.95 paper, 9780618959655 / 0618959653) “A story of cultural and political turmoil as schoolteacher Omar Yussef attempts to prove one of his former students is innocent of the killing of a leader of the Palestine Martyrs’ Brigade. Omar must consider the threat to his own life and the safety of his family as he pursues the truth he seeks to expose.” –Laura Hansen, Bookin’ It, Little Falls, MN
