This is Thomas Christopher Greene's fourth book. Have you read any of his other books (Mirror Lake, I'll Never be Long Gone and Envious Moon)? If so, how do you think they compare to The Headmaster's Wife

I have not read any of Thomas Christopher Greene's novels, but look forward to doing so this summer. I enjoyed his writing style.

I very much enjoyed reading The Headmaster's Wife and will add his books to my never-diminishing queue. I appreciated the introduction to his work.

Not yet, but I definitely plan to now. I thoroughly enjoyed - and devoured - this novel!

No, I haven't read any other books by this author. I do intend to check out his previous works since I did enjoy this one.

No, I have not read any of his other books. I don't intend to read other titles nor will I recommend this book to book groups. "The Headmaster's Wife" has been on my TBR list since the hardback published. However, I was very disappointed with it. I found the writing style to be dry and mechanical--much like a lecture in a freshman psychology class.

I have not read any of Greene's other books. However, as so many others have posted, I will seek them out. This current book really intrigued me!

I am not familiar with any of this author's other work and had not heard of him prior to receiving this novel. I don't believe I will be reading any of his other work.

I have not read any of the author's books. Frankly, I am surprised I have not discovered his books previously. I will definitely read another! Or more!

I haven't yet read any of Thomas Christopher Greene's other novels, but I'm curious to find out how similar (or dissimilar) they are to this one and how he develops his characters. I once read that Steven Spielberg said you can only have one major scare in a movie because after that the audience will be expecting it. I wonder if it's the same way with having a major narrative switch in a book. I imagine Greene doesn't use this technique in his other books (?), so what clever methods does he use?

No, but I've already looked for others at my library. And, I'll propose this book as one to read at my book club. Lots to discuss!
