"MacDonnell’s multifaceted novel unspools via flashbacks. Mimi’s no-nonsense narrative voice and a cast of well-drawn characters take readers on a humbling journey that explores the past and present; the bonds between parents, children and sisters; the power of secrets; and heroic acts of love."

—Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines, reviews Mimi Malloy, At Last! in today’s Shelf Awareness

In honor of the publication of Julia MacDonnell's Mimi Malloy, At Last!, we wanted to make a Frank Sinatra playlist. (Each song is a chapter of the book!)

While listening, please note that Mimi Malloy likes highballs, boxed chardonnay, Bloody Marys, coffee, salted nuts, donuts (vanilla creme with powdered sugar). Feel free to enjoy any of these while listening (or, of course, while reading Mimi Malloy).  

Be sure to follow us on Spotify at PicadorUSA to listen to all of our playlists.

Selected Track Listing:
1. Too Close For Comfort
2. Fly Me To The Moon
3. I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues
4. I’m Gonna Live Till I Die
5. Me And My Shadow
6. Thanks For The Memory
7. If You Are But A Dream
8. I’m Beginning To See The Light
9. The Curse Of An Aching Heart
10. Are You Lonesome Tonight

A great Sunday morning playlist!
