    My Sister’s Keeper. At least I assume so, I cried for days afterwards every time I thought about it.

    I love this question, as you know! I’m dutifully reading Stephen Finucan’s “The Fallen” and waiting for the rush to kick in. Dutiful because it’s one of last Year’s top 40 Canlit selections for fiction since 2000. Waiting because, to be fair, I’m only on chapter 2. The writing is fantastic so far but I just can’t keep track of the characters so far. ALSO I’m reading poetry by Lorna Crozier–specifically “What the Living won’t let Go” and I’m about to start “The Tempest” because Shakespeare in the Park is one of the best things about summer in Edmonton. Thanks for asking!!!!

    • Oh, I knew YOU’d respond, Ang! I’m reading We Have to Talk About Kevin right now because of you. Well, I started it. I read as much as I can handle, then switch to something lighter. It’s so beautifully written but such disturbing content.

    Mark Haddon: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. A super-fast read, and really fascinating fiction re: young man with autism who witnesses a murder, told in first person.

    Karen Connelly: The Lizard Cage. I cannot escape this book, although I read it years ago. Entire novel occurs in a prison cell in Myanmar. Violent, despairing, beautiful “hymn to human resilience”.

    Why yes, this certainly is a question that deserves far more room and time!

    • Ooh, loved Curious, really neat book. I haven’t read Lizard… books on despair often make me feel, well, desperate, so I have to be in the right head-space to handle them.
