If you're into haunting Scandinavian literature, beautifully written, I recommend Per Petterson's It's Fine By Me. It depicts the growing up years of the two friends from his unforgettable Out Stealing Horses - one boy traumatized by his abusive father and the death of his younger brother and the other offering friendship from his stable family life. It's very moving and very satisfying. - Nancy
From a young girl's strange discovery in the North Carolina clay we embark on a journey that is both magical and universal. In what is at its heart a love story, but also the story of a family dealing with loss and change, first time author Rhonda Riley explores the sensuality of the earth, the mysteries of the body, and the power of rebirth. Touching on themes of gender, self-image, and mortality, this is a captivating tale told in simple yet elegant prose. - Tony
