since a mysterious accident befell them a
year ago at Bennington College. So Lucy is
the last person Alice expects to see walking
down the street in Tangier, ;;;;, where Alice has
just moved with her new husband, John.
While it’s seemingly good fortune that fearless
Lucy is on hand to help Alice navigate the bustling
medinas of Morocco, Alice soon begins to feel
stifled by Lucy. Then John goes missing, and our
protagonist starts to question everything around her.
Ditto for readers, who won’t be able to put down
Tangerine, this month’s book buyer’s pick, by first-time novelist Christine Mangan.
The experience of becoming a published author
has been a bit of a roller coaster, admits Mangan,
an avid traveler who is used to managing stressful

classes all day, then stayed up all night talking to
publishers on the East Coast,” explains the longtime
Costco member from her apartment in Brooklyn.
“It was all very surreal. It still is.”
