Review: Fortune Smiles

Fortune Smiles by Adam Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a National Book Award winning and completely knockout collection of six stories with characters that will haunt you. They are surreal, unnerving, hilarious and heart-breaking. Highly recommended!

Review: Moonglow

Moonglow by Michael_Chabon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This fictionalized “memoir” from Chabon does not disappoint. Inspired by his grandfather’s deathbed stories and confessions, it is written with love and is, by turns, inspiring, sad, thoughtful, and hilarious. Chabon promises that he has “stuck to facts except when facts refused to conform to memory, narrative purpose or the truth as I prefer to understand it.”
