Carnival by Rawi Hage
Carnival

mumblipegs, January 30, 2013

To fly from circus to shady coffee shops, taxi cabs, murder and mystery into the darkness under nightime bridges to end up in perhaps the best place of all -- beside bookcases laden with tumbling stories. I was fortunate to find this title last year published by Anansi Press, and would read it again -- many times.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

mumblipegs, August 9, 2012

An exceptional story that dips into fantasy, sci-fi, history, travel (both time and familiar)and of course some very peculiar children. The story line is held together securely with a series of "found pictures" illustrating (and verifying) the title.

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Gilead

mumblipegs, January 19, 2012

A story that can be both gentle and disturbing. When you finish reading, the book must closed quietly, so as not to disturb an old man's life.

Bury My Bones but Keep My Words: African Tales for Retelling

mumblipegs, July 2, 2010

My comment is only for the marvelous title of this collection of African Folk tales -- Bury My Bones But Keep My Words. It is what every true writer aspires to -- a dream, a goal for a life's work. To Be Read long after they are around to do the reading.
Thanks for this.
