137. "You Are Not A Stranger Here" ~ Adam Haslett
Deceptive in it simplicity, Haslett's ability to take a scene and write it to suit the tone, setting, personalities, besides details and descriptions, seduces the reader into following his Pied Piper call through the pages.
Several short stories, underlying themes of betrayal, sexuality, connection to the world and each other.
This is the novel to teach students what you mean by "every word counts." Amazing work.
4.75 out of 5.0 Zwiters.
