THE OUTLAW ALBUM: Stories
by Daniel Woodrell

"Twelve spare, haunting and brutal slices of country noir from the genre’s most gifted practitioner." - Kirkus Reviews

by Gioia Diliberto

Which should I read first?
This factual account or the novel, THE PARIS WIFE by Paula McLain?


"Berg's masterful portraits and keen insight makes for a memorable read." -- Kirkus Reviews



". . . a thoughtful chronicle with inspiring lessons in personal growth and building a life one loves from the inside out." -- Publishers Weekly



“Trigiani combines family and American history, reflections on lives well-lived, and sound advice to excellent effect, as a legacy to her daughter and a remembrance of two inimitable women.” — Publishers Weekly

by Joan Leegant

Hmmm. Should I join the read along with Avis at She Reads and Reads and Carrie at Books and Movies? I think, Yes. Yes, I should!
by Margaret Atwood

"A witty, astute collection of essays and lectures on science fiction by the acclaimed novelist."  -- Kirkus Reviews

This is the second time I'm seeing Atwood's In Other Worlds mentioned on blogs. The first was by Marie of Boston Bibliophile.

The Outlaw Album is a book that was featured at SIBA and that I am really excited about. I can't wait to read it and see what I think. You got a lot of great stuff here this week, and I hope that you enjoy them all!
