Remember Me Like This hits the bestsellers list!

On May 25, Remember Me Like This debuted at #5 on the Boston Globe’s bestsellers list!

The novel also received a rave review in the Globe from Emily Rapp!  She described the book as:

“Extraordinary… An achingly beautiful and psychologically insightful portrait of a family rebuilding after a traumatic event…  So devastating yet utterly surprising that only a novelist of tremendous skill could manage it… Johnston is a terrific stylist who wields lyrical language in a way that makes it seem natural and unforced … A lesser novelist might have treated such charged material with prurient interest and ripped-from-the-headlines drama instead of as a tender and compelling portrait of recovery… Exquisite… Luminous… What does rebuilding look like for individuals and for small towns in which each person is important and missed when they are gone? Johnston tackles these issues with empathy and tact, rendering the many faces of loss with acute observational skill. Readers will be surprised and moved by this novel in which being found is only the beginning of the story. This is a stroke of artistic genius…”

 

 

Remember Me Like This AVAILABLE NOW!

 

The early reviews have been amazing, and now Bret’s new novel, Remember Me Like This, is available everywhere–in hardback, eBook, and audiobook!  Here’s a sample of the incredible buzz that sent the novel into a second printing even before its release!

 

“I know the novel you’re looking for. It’s the thriller that also has interesting sentences. It’s the one with the driving plot but fully realized characters as well, the one that flows like it was plotted by Dennis Lehane but feels like it was written by Jonathan Franzen. . . . Fortunately, there’s Bret Anthony Johnston’s Remember Me Like This. . . . The book is riveting, with the elements of suspense neatly folded into an elegant series of interlocking arcs. . . . There is nowhere you want to stop.”Esquire

“Tremendously moving… there’s real humanity in Johnston’s writing, and it’s heartening to spend time with these folks as they relearn how to be a family. Rendered in these compassionate, candid chapters, theirs is a struggle that speaks to those of us who have endured far less.” –Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“A remarkable debut novel. Johnston incites the reader’s urgent need for answers, satisfied in a surprising way that makes Remember Me Like This virtually unputdownable.” Kirkus
