“Terrific. . . [An] elegant noose of a plot. . . Bohjalian is a pleasure to read. He writes muscular, clear, propulsive sentences. . . As suspenseful as it is, The Red Lotus is also unexpectedly moving – about friendship, about the connections between people and, most of all, about the love of parents for children and of children for parents. Bohjalian is a writer with a big heart and deep compassion for his characters.” — The New York Times
The Flight Attendant is going to be a limited TV series from Warner Brothers Television! The spectacularly talented and utterly perfect Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory” will star as my beleaguered flight attendant, Cassie Bowden — and executive produce, along with Greg Berlanti and Suzanne McCormick. Filming will begin in the fall of 2019. Cassie is among my favorites of all my heroines. Yes, she’s a mess, but I always felt her childhood pain and childhood scars when I was writing the novel. So, tray tables and seat backs up: we’re about to leave the gate!
