Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
Beautiful Ruins

This book was on my list of "Books Wanted" for many months. I finally read it and fell in love with it. What a great story and characters! Now it's being made into a film - I wonder who will play Richard Burton?

Peter Heller creates a world of the future that, although hopeless in many ways, speaks to the resilience of the human heart despite the losses that harden it.

The Girl I Left Behind: A Personal History of the 1960s (P.S.) by Judith Nies
The Girl I Left Behind: A Personal History of the 1960s (P.S.)

Nan Rush, January 2, 2012

I've read a lot of excellent books on the 60's, and this one is a standout. Nies describes her feminist awakening in strong, honest language that will resonate with others who discovered themselves in that era. This is a gem of a book.

Zeitoun by Dave Eggers

Nan Rush, January 2, 2010

This book gets my vote as Best of the Decade. Even though most reviews have given away the ending, the suspense is almost unbearable. As we row along the flooded streets of New Orleans with Zeitoun, we want to shout to him - "Be careful - there are monsters out there!" This is a hearbreaking work of staggering impact.
