Sing Them HomePosted: January 4, 2010
Has anyone read this book by Stephanie Kallos?
From a review by Nancy Pearl/NPR online:
“Sing Them Home is simply wonderful. It’s a welcome tonic to those of us who look back with great longing to Anne Tyler’s early novels. . . . that is, those of us hungry for books with quirky, flawed, yet realistic and beloved characters who leap off the page into our arms and refuse to leave. I didn’t want Sing Them Home ever to end.”
I didn’t either! Sitting on a display table at my local library, I was drawn in by the cover and the librarian’s critique. Set in southeastern Nebraska, I couldn’t resist picking it up as my holiday read. Little did I know it would keep me company as the freakin’ creepin’ crud settled into my lungs Wednesday, making it difficult to sleep. With regret, I finished Sing Them Home.
Not feeling like doing much of anything , hoping to nurse this cold into oblivion, I’ve started another enthralling book..
