Book Review: Florida by Lauren Groff

It is terribly true, even if the truth does not comfort, that if you look at the moon for long enough night after night, as I have, you will see that the old cartoons are correct, that the moon is, in fact, laughing. But it is not laughing at us, we lonely humans, who are … Continue reading Book Review: Florida by Lauren Groff

Book Review: The Ones We Choose by Julie Clark

But there are some cells that last a lifetime. Brain cells in the cerebral cortex start recording from conception and don't stop until death. This is where your memory lives. Your thoughts.

The May Mothers are everywhere. Sometimes I stand at the window, peering out from behind the curtain, trying to get a bit of sunlight on my face, and then I see them.

We are gathered here today to not … Continue reading Book Review: The Ensemble by Aja Gabel

Book Review: Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

I was afraid ever since I was brought back to life. I felt...out of place, and I wished that whoever built Themis would … Continue reading Book Review: Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

Book Review: Tin Man by Sarah Winman

In the front bedroom, propped up among the books, is a color photograph of three people, a woman and two men. They are tightly framed, their arms around one another, and the world beyond is out of focus, and the world on either side excluded. They look happy, they really do. Not just because they … Continue reading Book Review: Tin Man by Sarah Winman
