Barbara Kingsolver fans, take note: her newest novel, The Lacuna, will be published in November 2009. Kingsolver's last fiction work, relased in 2000, was Prodigal Summer, a lovely book and book group favorite.

According to BookPage's blog The Book Case, The Lacuna is set in Mexico and the U.S. during the 1930s, 40s and 50s, and its main character will be involved with historical characters such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait!
