About Attachments

Hardcover: 336 pages

Publisher: Dutton Adult (April 14, 2011)

Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors their office e-mail. But the women still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers at the newspaper and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can’t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.

When Lincoln applied to be an Internet security officer, he hardly imagined he’d be sifting through other people’s inboxes like some sort of electronic Peeping Tom. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can’t quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can’t help but be entertained-and captivated- by their stories.

But by the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? “Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you.” After a series of close encounters and missed connections, Lincoln decides it’s time to muster the courage to follow his heart . . . even if he can’t see exactly where it’s leading him.

Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a strikingly clever and deeply romantic debut about falling in love with the person who makes you feel like the best version of yourself. Even if it’s someone you’ve never met.

“Cracking, laugh-out-loud dialogue, characters that feel painfully real, and a sweet premise about love in the information age: if Attachments were an e-mail, I’d be forwarding it to my entire list of contacts.”
–Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of Sing You Home

“Attachments is so perfectly engaging, so sly, and so funny, I read it all in one sitting, then went back and read by favorite scenes a second time.”
–Haven Kimmel, bestselling author of A Girl Named Zippy

About Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell is only very good at two things – reading and writing, in that order.

People who are good only at reading and writing, and who also want health insurance, usually study journalism.  Rainbow earned a journalism degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1995 and, at 24, became the youngest-ever – and first female – columnist at the Omaha World-Herald.

Rainbow started writing Attachments while working at the newspaper, but it couldn’t be less of a true story.  She met her husband in junior high and can hardly get him to read her column, let alone her e-mail.

After a brief, enjoyable stint in advertising in the mid-2000s, Rainbow is now back at The World-Herald, writing a pop-culture/lifestyles column.

When she’s not writing, she’s reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing with people about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things.  She has two sons, and if God hears her prayers, they will grow up just as nerdy and true-hearted as the protagonist of this book.
