Evel Knievel Days by Pauls Toutonghi
Evel Knievel Days

Kelly Portland, August 7, 2012

What a treat! Learn about the copper mines of Butte, Montana. Enjoy Egyptian food and culture. Laugh with the narrator at himself and family foibles. Recognize emotional truths given in fine lyric passages. More than a coming-of-age story, the voice of this novel will propel you through the streets of Cairo, through a family’s story you will always remember.

The Beginner's Goodbye by Anne Tyler
The Beginner's Goodbye

Kelly Portland, July 26, 2012

Anne Tyler loves her characters and so do I. What a treat to settle into my old Baltimore neighborhood with Tyler’s Aaron narrating. Here’s a new friend who is distraught and funny, earnest, and comfortably quirky. But true to Tyler fiction, all the characters are delightfully quirky. Aaron's voice entered my history, sending me to understand, "Oh yes, I have done that." Or my brother has or my best-friend neighbor has... Tyler reminds me people care about each other in every-day peculiar ways. Aren’t we all beginner’s at something, stumbling toward love and home? These are my peeps.
