by Brian Azzarello
Azzarello’s 100 Bullets series is a dark, brutally real-life look at ethical issues and conspiracies. No superheroes here, but almost impossible to let go as the series evolves. posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:41AM
|Carter beats the Devil : a novel |
by Gold, Glen David, 1964-
A mystery that resonates with romance, atmosphere, and a look at America in the Roaring Twenties makes for fun and thoughtful reading posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:38AM
|Barn blind |
by Smiley, Jane.
Smiley's first novel explores the dynamic of a family with a mother obsessed with horses and riding. Does her will entitle her to dictate her family's lives, or is her demanding instruction make them into champions? posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:37AM
|Lying awake |
by Salzman, Mark.
If you required a life-saving operation that would take away one of your reasons for living, would you have it? A nun's ethical struggle and her struggle with her own faith is told in sparse language. posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:32AM
|Getting mother's body : a novel |
by Parks, Suzan-Lori.
Funny, moving story about a young girl trying to find money for an abortion after her (married) lover ditches her. Told in multiple voices, it comes across as a mix of The Cider House Rules and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World. posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:30AM
|Canone inverso : a novel |
by Maurensig, Paolo, 1943-
A short book that opens all kinds of doors to discussion. What is the role of art in life? Who is entitled to the great instruments of art? Brilliant language and a deliberately vague ending make this a terrific read. posted Feb 11, 2010 at 10:29AM
