‘Big Little Lies’ author has new novel out in September

NEW YORK (AP) — “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty has a new novel coming out. “Apples Never Fall” will be a story of family, tennis and a mysterious absence. The publisher Henry Holt announced Wednesday that the book comes out Sept. 14. Its characters include retired tennis coaches Stan and Joy Delaney, and their four adult children. The publisher says the author once again brings readers behind the closed doors of seemingly tranquil suburbia. Moriarty is an Australian writer whose previous books also include “Truly Madly Guilty.” Her novel “Nine Perfect Strangers” came out in 2018 and is being adapted for a Hulu miniseries starring Nicole Kidman.
