Have I read every book on this blog, you ask? I've read enough of them, but I also have a stable of readers, bloggers, and reviewers that chime in and express their views. (Without asking, I might add!)
Here's some suggestions for March......
AMAZON BEST BOOK of the MONTH, March 2012 and also a 2011 BOOKER PRIZE FINALIST, this novel loops from Nazi-occupied Berlin and Paris to modern-day Baltimore and back. Reviewers labeled this a "musical novel about the cultural cost of racism and what we're willing to surrender for love and art."
In part this is the story of two black American jazz musicians and their German colleagues whose music is suppressed by the Nazis in 1939 Berlin.
