Meg’s new novel, Beautiful Exiles, is a #1 Amazon fiction bestseller!
Beautiful Exiles was named an Editors’ Choice by the Historical Novel Society, which called it, “so well written that at times I forgot I was reading a novel,” and it received a starred review in Booklist, which said, “Clayton uses her meticulous research skills to bring to life the wartime years of Martha Gellhorn… Clayton’s take on their boozy, love/hate relationship is packed with details of the war … a dramatic backdrop for her fictional tale of two vivid personalities and world-altering writers.”
The Race for Paris was the recipient of the David J. Langum, Sr. Prize for American Historical Fiction, Honorary Mention, and The Wednesday Sisters was named one of “25 Essential Best Friend Novels”—along with the likes of The Three Musketeers, Harry Potter, Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburg, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, and Mary McCarthy’s The Group—in Entertainment Weekly.
