It’s a family drama, it’s suspenseful, it’s structure is intriguing, it’s set in Vermont… it’s “The Call” by Yannick Murphy — the first Globe book club selection for the new year. Read the book over the next month and tweet books editor Nicole Lamy your questions @BGlobeBooks. She’ll ask the author to answer during our live Twitter discussion at the end of January.

“Remarkable. . . . The truthful evocation of family is the real triumph of ‘The Call’. There is much love in this novel, and just as much truth about the pain and pleasure of family life. . . . [A] clever and beautiful book.” (Boston Globe)
