"
What a great writer! This story is intriguing and wonderfully edgy. It's got a little of everything in it involving all kinds of issues. The chapters are short. They often start with some devastating news and end with a simple sentence leaving the reader wanting more. The premise surrounds the fact that a neighborhood girl was raped on their very quiet Baton Rouge street. The boy telling the story is madly in love her. He explores the neighborhood in depth trying to figure out who could of done it. The reader is right there with him. Can you guess?" - Taysie

President Obama recently said this about Redeploymnet:

"Over vacation, I read a book of short stories by Phil Klay called Redeployment. It's a quick but powerful and, for me, painful set of stories about the experience of ordinary soldiers in Iraq."

"Get in Trouble by Kelly Link is  a very good collection of nine speculative fiction short stories.  In many of the stories, Link captures her characters in defining moments that challenge us to think about the choices we make in our lives. None of the stories are hard core SF, so I would recommend to non SF readers as well as SF lovers. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the art on the book jacket." - Kay

“David Green is the NPR co-host of Morning Edition on the radio. He has had a variety of postings in his career and one of them was Moscow.

In Midnight in Siberia he writes about the real  people of today's Russia who have to deal with a whole new set of circumstances in their post-Soviet world.  This is a country that is changing dramatically as it progresses into the 21st century. The book is a very entertaining and informative travelogue of a territory not visited by many Westerner.” - Archie

Boyle describes life on this tiny island off the coast of Southern California.  He tells of two families, one in the 1880s and one in the 1930s who come to start new lives and pursue their dreams on San Miguel.  This is an absorbing tale as much of the island as the people on it. Written as only T.C.Boyle can write.” - Anita
