Home, available now in paperback, is the story of Frank Money, a modern Odysseus returning to a 1950s America after fighting in the Korean War. As he journeys to his native Georgia in search of his sister, Cee, it becomes clear that the Money family troubles began well before their wartime separation. Together, they return to their rural hometown of Lotus, where buried secrets are unearthed and where Frank learns at last what it means to be a man, what it takes to heal, and—above all—what it means to come home.
The digital signing is a first for Google Play—Morrison will sign books using a Wacom tablet. Google+ Hangouts are live video chats designed to build communities and make connections.
