Cover ArtMe talk pretty one day
by Sedaris, David
Well known as the memoir writing brother of actress Amy Sedaris, David has made a place for himself in the literary world with laugh-out-loud stories of his youthful-family years, the stumbling blocks of artistic fame and romantic folly. Fans of Augusten Burroughs will appreciate his wry wit and no-hold-punches at human dysfunction.   posted Jan 13, 2009 at 7:55PM

Cover ArtIn the company of ogres
by Martinez, A. Lee
Martinez manages to combine fantasy and science fiction story lines with dialog better suited to a Monty Python sketch. Raunchy, gory stories flirt wantonly with pop culture references and race along at pace second only to the laughs. Fans of Douglas Adams can finally stop holding their breaths.   posted Jan 13, 2009 at 7:54PM

Cover ArtThe white boy shuffle
by Paul Beatty
Beatty is best known for his beat and slam poetry, and this novel certainly reflects his blistering and elegant use of language. His attacks on race relations, economic disparity and educational quagmires will make you laugh until you wince. Fans of Sherman Alexie will respond well to this dark comedy.   posted Jan 13, 2009 at 7:53PM

Cover ArtThe absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian
by Sherman Alexie

Also, I enjoy getting a better sense of Native Americans in a modern context. Thankfully titles like these are becoming more available. I really like the   posted Jul 6, 2008 at 1:02PM

Cover ArtEver
by Gail Carson Levine
As ever, Gail Carson Levine has written a modern fairy tale that rivals our old favorites. I adore every new opportunity to read her work. Magical!   posted Jul 6, 2008 at 12:52PM
