Erotic Stories (Everyman's Pocket Classics) by Rowan Pelling
Erotic Stories (Everyman's Pocket Classics)

Leslie Richman, July 4, 2014

This is a lovely little book of erotica. The excerpts are thoughtfully chosen, creating a diverse collection whose quality and sensuality are the common factors. Erotic Stories, with its variety and focus on well-written pieces, is definitely a standout among erotica anthologies.

Teen Spirit by Francesca Lia Block
Teen Spirit

Leslie Richman, July 2, 2014

Francesca Lia Block has written another lush novel set in her classic enchanting yet dark Los Angeles. Julie is a girl finding her way after a great loss, and the path she takes, while painful, allows for a beautiful rebirth. Block offers her signature style while still creating a fresh excitement in her writing. Literally spellbinding enough to be a one-sitting read, Teen Spirit is a full sensory experience for teens and adults alike.

Shine by Lauren Myracle
Shine

Leslie Richman, May 5, 2014

Lauren Myracle's Shine is a YA fiction book that overall transcends it's genre. Part social commentary, part teen story, it comes together to address the issue of violence against gay teens in a very personal way. Myracle works in culture, social class, religion, and opportunity (or lack thereof) to offer a seamless story of coming of age in small town America. Shine combines a little Dorothy Allison and a little Millenial commentary. Myracle offers a satisfying balance to the sensitive issues of hate crime, teen sexuality, and rural poverty while somehow creating a very uplifting story.

Cavedweller by Dorothy Allison
Cavedweller

Leslie Richman, April 15, 2014

Cavedweller is just a stunning read. I've been a longtime fan of Dorothy Allison's non-fiction, and this is my first foray into her much celebrated work as a novelist. Delia Byrd is a character you can't break away from, and her friends and family are as real as any walking around you while you hold this book. A layered tale, a generational legacy, and a very palpable experience all reside within the pages of Cavedweller.
