Forgetfulness: A Novel

Peter Anderson, February 10, 2007

Wonderfully written and deeply insightful novel about one man confronting grief, vengeance and his past, by perhaps our most unappreciated great author.

Beware of God: Stories by Shalom Auslander
Beware of God: Stories

Peter Anderson, December 9, 2006

Extremely funny, deeply thoughtful and borderline blasphemous stories about God, believers and the nature of faith.

The People's Act of Love by James Meek
The People's Act of Love

Peter Anderson, October 19, 2006

The novel is a stunning achievement, one with an epic sweep which still manages to convey the small details of people?s everyday lives. It?s a story of love, suspense and war which asks some very big philosophical questions which, in intriguingly ambiguous fashion, are only partially answered. Simply put, it's one of the finest books I've read in years.

Hairstyles of the Damned by Joe Meno
Hairstyles of the Damned

Peter Anderson, August 21, 2006

Sharply written and funny tale of a teenaged boy of the early 1990s struggling to find his place in the world. Meno nails the 17-year-old male voice perfectly.
