The Lehman Trilogy
by Stefano Massini

View in Library Catalog

This book is--what is it? A 700 page family saga in verse--full of insight, Yiddish, fun, wisdom, and, finally, sadness. I didn't intend to read it; I just wanted to look at it and browse, but I was hooked within a few pages. It's like nothing else I've ever read. (If you don't want to read it, you might choose to see it on Broadway for it's been turned into a play.)

Norma Jean Baker of Troy
by Anne Carson

View in Library Catalog

Carson is a favorite of mine: a classics professor who writes innovative, allusive fiction in wholly innovative forms. (I usually understand about half of what I'm reading.) Here she takes on Marilyn Monroe / Helen / Persephone / the Iliad (war). Sample: "Oh my darlings, / they tell you you're born with a precious pearl. / Truth is, / It's a disaster to be a girl."

Keeper Of The Lost Cities; Exile
by Shannon Messenger

View in Library Catalog

It has everything you would want from the series, an annoying but adorable alicorn, new revelations, more adventure and suspense, old and new relationships and how they develop, betrayal, hardship, funny book references, fights, and of course, way more elven fantasy realness.
