AN UP AND COMER (03/08/2013)

Elizabeth Strout, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Olive Kitteridge is returning with a "stunning and powerful" novel.... so they say. It won't be out until March 26th, but you have plenty of book suggestions, if you're following this blog!

Below is a review of The Burgess Boys from Goodreads, the free social networking site for book lovers. I've already pre-ordered this book.

To Order Click on the Amazon Search Box in the Sidebar

"With a rare combination of brilliant storytelling, exquisite prose,and remarkable insight into character, Elizabeth Strout has brought to life two deeply human protagonists whose struggles and triumphs will resonate with you long after you turn the final page.

Tender, tough-minded, loving, and deeply illuminating about the ties that bind us to family and home, The Burgess Boys is perhaps her most astonishing work of literary art."  (Goodreads)
