Wow! King says he started this effort years ago and finally returned to it. Thank goodness he did!! I have been recommending it to everyone I know even to strangers. I fell in love with Jake/George and wanted so badly for him to find a way to make it all workout. I loved all the layered stories and nooks and crannies we went down in order to set the world right. Well done, Mr. King, well done.

Blind Your Ponies by Stanley Gordon West

This was the hands down best pick for our book group in 2006. We all loved it and that says a lot we have very diverse tastes in literature. I fell in love with the main character and his grandmother and learned way more than I thought I wanted to know about basketball. The insights to small western town life were spot on. Highly recommended!

Trans-Sister Radio by Chris Bohjalian

This was my favorite pick for our book group last year. I've been a big fan of Bohalian for years, my love started with Midwives. This is definitely my favorite of his work so far. The empathy he uses to provide insight to each of the characters feelings ad reactions is a delight to read. This novel is incredibly graphic in both its detailed descriptions of surgery as well as in sexual content -but I was never offended, it felt like I was gaining insight to my own body by reading about Dana's body. Highly recommended!!
