I’m so excited to announce that my book, The Stowaway, has been selected as a January 2018 Indie Next Pick! (A list of the 20 best books of the month by the independent bookstores across America!) Many thanks to American Booksellers Association and IndieBound and of course Simon & Schuster.
From Indie Next:
“The story of Billy Gawronski, the young man who repeatedly tried to join Richard Byrd’s Antarctic expedition, reads like an adventure novel. The reality of his life is beyond the realm of the wildest imagination. Shapiro brings this resilient and resourceful man to life against the changing world of the Roaring Twenties, and his story perfectly reflects a world undergoing vast change. Combining narrative, science, and portraits of outsized personalities, Shapiro treats the reader to a story that is not only relevant but a total joy.”
