Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) added to our library collection…
The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice
Victims by Jonathan Kellerman
The title story of this lauded short story collection borrows from Raymond Carver’s classic short story and some of that same story’s set up, but with much different results. The rest of the stories here are incredibly imaginative and many deal with the modern Jewish experience. You can find reviews for the collection at The New York Times byMichiko Kakutani, The Onion AV Club, and at the Book People’s Blog, and an interview with author Nathan Englander at NPR.
