From the publisher:  “In We Are All Completely beside Ourselves,  author Karen Joy Fowler weaves her most accomplished work to date—a tale of loving but fallible people whose well-intentioned actions lead to heartbreaking consequences.”  This book won the 2014 Pen/Faulkner award for fiction, was a finalist for the 2014 Man Booker prize, listed among the New York Times Review’s 100 Notable Books of 2013, and named by the Christian Science Monitor as one of the top 15 works of fiction in 2013.

 

FlanaganPR9619.3.F525 N37 2015

From the publisher:  “In The Narrow Road to the Deep North, [acclaimed Australian writer] Richard Flanagan displays the gifts that have made him one of the most acclaimed writers of contemporary fiction. Moving deftly from a Japanese POW camp to present-day Australia, from the experiences of Dorrigo Evans and his fellow prisoners to that of the Japanese guards, this savagely beautiful novel tells a story of the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.”  This book won the 2014 Man Booker prize.
