Book Recommendations

by Patrick on March 10, 2009

I have a recommendation up on the LA Times book blog Jacket Copy this morning.  What book am I recommending?  Well, you’ll have to click over there to find out.

Also on the subject of recommendations, The Millions has a new “Staff Picks” post up.  While there’s a few books I’d never heard of on this list (always a good sign), this snipet from Edan’s recommendation of A Mercy, by Toni Morrison, steals the show:  “Also, one time I tried to hand-sell A Mercy at the bookstore where I work, and the customer said, “Oh I hated her other book, you know, that Caged Bird Singing one?” So, let me set the record straight: Toni Morrison is not Maya Angelou. Got that?”  Got it.
