|Strange and wonderful well-written books (7 titles)
How should we describe these books, the kind we love to read? Often they're in translation, because the crispness of the translated word is a delicacy. Often reality is bent or suspended or turned on its ear. Let's be honest, sometimes there's loss and longing, yes it can't be denied. At the end, though, we keep the last pages hanging because we can't bear to see it go.
|Joy school |

Very sweet coming-of-age story about a likeable girl. Quick read, too! posted May 25, 2010 at 12:03PM
|If on a winter’s night a traveler |

|The things they carried : a work of fiction |
by Tim O'Brien
O’Brien found a way to capture the horror but keep the humanity. Amazingly well done. posted Feb 24, 2010 at 12:22AM
|The law of love |
by Laura Esquivel
This is absolutely one of my favorite books of all time. It’s interactive magical realism, with a CD in the back that you play at certain times as you look at art in the book. Just lovely, and a useful story. posted Feb 24, 2010 at 12:07AM
