Read about the decidedly odd (and I’m putting it mildly, here) Family Fang and learn how every family–even the really weird ones!– has more in common than you might think.
Skyhorse gives us a unique look into this neighborhood and its Latino residents as they deal with gentrification and finding their peace within the larger cultural context of Los Angeles.
One of the best literary writers these days, Barry gives us another treat to submerge ourselves in. On Canaan’s Side is a poignant tale that covers the sweep of 20th century America and Ireland in the best Irish storytelling tradition. It’s a sad story, but so beautifully told that the language lingers with you long after you’ve finished the book.
This latest book by Chang-Rae Lee is astounding and profound in its ability to portray the resiliency of the human spirit. Definitely not a light, or even always pleasant read, it falls more into the “sticks-with-you” and “thought-provoking” categories. . . a serious contender for my favorite novel of 2010!
David Mitchell, perhaps best known for his Cloud Atlas, gives us another remarkable creation in this lastest offering. Honest, forthright Jacob de Zoet, the nephew of a Dutch preacher, is plopped into the Nagasaki of the late 18th and early 19th centuries — at the peak of Dutch trade with Japan. Through his eyes, we see this absorbing tale of the clash of cultures, replete with political machinations, plots within plots, graft and corruption, unrequited love, and the struggle of the ‘good’ to perservere throughout it all … a thoroughly satisfying read to sink into!
