Lee Smith has written seventeen works of fiction. Her novel THE LAST GIRLS was a New York Times bestseller. Her latest novel SILVER ALERT, a funny and endearing story of family, secrets, and aging, follows an elderly man who heads off on a joyride with a new young friend—who may have some secrets of her own. In this buoyant novel, the masterful Smith asks: What life do we deserve? And how do we make it our own? Sometimes, you just have to seize the wheel. “It’s very different and it’s very special and it’s very good! I loved it.” —Dolly Parton
