Cover ArtThe gathering
by Anne Enright
I liked this novel more than the Library Journal’s reviewer Caroline M. Hallsworthy did. I think it is a credit to Enright to be able to write such a compelling novel about a story with very limited physical action on the part of the characters. No light reading here: a stark novel plumbing the depths of struggling love and the things that pass for love. A great book for those who don’t need sunshine in all they read.   posted Dec 19, 2007 at 4:03PM

Cover ArtThe unbearable lightness of being
by Kundera, Milan
This book changed the way I look at the world. Kundera's brilliance shines from the interpersonal to the philosophic.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 5:55PM

Cover ArtMe talk pretty one day
by Sedaris, David
Offbeat and hilarious.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 5:53PM

Cover ArtThe night in question : stories
by Wolff, Tobias, 1945-
This collection includes the story "Bullet in the Brain" which gives me chills and leaves me in awe every time I read it.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 5:53PM
