Brick Lane by Monica Ali
Brick Lane

CorreLola, March 27, 2008

Brick Lane tells the parallel stories of two sisters: one in London, the other back home in Bangladesh. The story unfolds over the course of 20 or so years, ending right after the events and aftermath of September 11, 2001. The story alternates between the daily life of Nazneen and letters written by her sister Hasina. Ali's writing is wonderful: funny, sharp and deeply moving; and explores the power of personal choice (particularly for women) and the sometimes suffocating disillusion of immigrant life. A terrific read.

Song Yet Sung
Song Yet Sung

CorreLola, February 14, 2008

James McBride tells a wonderful story of survival and forgiveness. The title of the book takes its name from "The Code," or the secret language of the Underground Railroad. McBride's story is suspenseful and moving, enraging and also fulfilling, as the chain of events triggered by the escape of slave girl Liz Spocott leads to a satisfying end. Highly recommended, especially now during Black History Month.
