BOOK OF THE WEEK
Apparently no one expected Alice Munro to win the Nobel Prize. Bookstores (that aren't us) didn't have her in stock, and there just wasn't enough Alice in the publisher's warehouse to meet the sudden demand. Well, everyone's caught up and now flush with Alice--and, if you look close enough, you might be able to spot the Nobel Prize insignia on the cover.
REVIEW OF THE WEEK
Three Lives of Tomoni Ishikawa,
By Benjamin Constable
"What stood out to me most about Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa was how well Constable completely grasped the friendship between Tomomi and Ben. When Ben is reflecting on his experiences with his late best friend, it was easy for me to compare his stories of Tomomi to stories with me and my good friends. The strength of writing made the book very difficult to put down, as I wanted to continue to watch the friendship grow as Ben continued to learn more about his friend."
