What great books did you hear about / discover this week?
That Went Well by Terrell Harris Dougan
I learned about this book via Alyce's (At Home With Books) review. Alyce has given this book a 5 out of 5 rating.
"A compassionate, thought-provoking memoir about growing up with a mentally disabled sister, "That Went Well" reminds us to accept difference, to refuse to surrender, and to fight for the right of every human being to matter . . . and to be loved."
- Andrew Bridge, author of "Hope's Boy"
I was also alerted to House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III via a bookstore customer yesterday. She's a local poet and described this novel as one of her very favorite books. I watched the film a couple years ago and enjoyed it.
"The most rending kind of war is not between two hatreds, but between two hopes....Dubus sets out the growing confrontation with chilly ingenuity and a remarkably observant compassion."
