Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt
Possession: A Romance

Trudy, February 1, 2010

Byatt is amazing. She has not only created unforgettable modern-day characters in her deft satire of academia, she has created writings in the voices of two fictional eminent Victorians. Each of story's many layers has a unique flavor, and their mingling results in a most delectable concoction.

The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian
The Double Bind

Trudy, February 1, 2010

A great and compelling novel that involves us deeply in its characters' lives as they deal with issues like homelessness, sexual assault, and mental illness, in a story that pays homage to the greatest of American novels, The Great Gatsby.
