2015: Rating deleted. I can't in good conscience keep ratings for books by any of the 204 writers who signed the letter protesting the award for courage PEN gave to Charlie Hebdo. Such willful obtuseness by writers, of all people, toward freedom of expression is very troubling and sad.
2014: As Buffy Summers once noted: The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.
Beautiful rueful stories about unsettled and sometimes unsettling people who struggle to hold out for that little bit of life that can mean something to them.
