You don’t have to be a dog lover or a devotee of E. B White to delight in this collection of essays and correspondence from 1929 to 1984. Rather than being saccharine when writing about the dogs he obviously loved, or acerbic when expressing his opinions on the politics of the day, White shared astute, down-to-earth observations of his world and did so with charming—sometimes disarming—wit. From stoic yet tender remembrances of pets lost to a priceless tongue-in-cheek letter to the IRS, this is an engaging scrapbook, not to be missed. ~ Ranae

The wit, insight, and talent of this award-winning author (Citizen Vince, The Zero) blow me away!

Jess Walter’s own obvious empathy for the human condition will have you pulling for Prior and his screwy, shady, last-chance scheme for solvency. A laugh-out-loud seriocomic masterpiece! ~ Ranae

Suspend your disbelief-accept a dog as narrator-and you'll be in for a lovely ride. With a charming mix of innocence and intelligence, Enzo, a most philosophical canine, recounts his life as loyal companion to professional race car driver Denny Swift. Enzo shares his hopes to reincarnate as a human; his frustrations with not having opposable thumbs; and his life lessons learned, such as 'No race has ever been won in the first corner . . . ' Stein took a risk by making Enzo the speaker, but it is just that risk, coupled with a good story, that makes this novel work. As Enzo says, "Sometimes we simply have to believe." ~ Ranae

This is a delightful little classic. On October 20th, 1944, Cleveland, Ohio experienced a catastrophic natural gas tank explosion. Robertson's endearing protagonist, nine-year-old Morris Bird III, became an unlikely and unsung hero. Voice, style and story earn this charming gem a spot on my list of favorite reads.

We all know the stories of Christ's birth, ministry, and crucifixion. But what of those missing years of his youth and young adulthood? In Lamb, Moore fills in the blanks with inventive, quirky aplomb. Really, the title says it all: irreverent, historically inaccurate, and absurdly entertaining.

When his mother became critically ill, nice-guy Miles Roby dropped out of college and came home to Empire Falls. Twenty years later he?s still flipping burgers at the Empire Grill, his wife is leaving him for the pompous proprietor of the local health club, his free-loading father is off on yet another drunken excursion of indeterminate duration, and the town cop, who happens to be in the back pocket of the domineering town matriarch?who owns the Grill?seems bent on a confrontation. Miles is ripe for a mid-life crisis. And Russo, a master storyteller, keen observer of human nature, and expert on small-town life, lets it play out in his trademark serio-comic style. Engaging, entertaining, and replete with characters you will recognize, Empire Falls is deservedly a national bestseller, a New York Times Notable Book, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and, now, ?Ranae?s Favorite Book of the Year.? You can?t go wrong with this one. ~ Ranae

Three generations of family and town secrets propel this highly readable debut novel. In her determination to find out who is shooting “her” wolves on Big Foley Mountain in Pope County, Kentucky, independent protagonist Olivia Harker Cross discovers more dangerous enemies and sinister secrets than she had ever envisioned. Olivia’s voice has been compared to that of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, and Wall’s prose has called up comparisons to Flannery O’Conner and Eudora Welty. A compelling, gritty, and memorable read. ~ Ranae

Colorado rancher Atticus Cody’s wife was killed in an accident for which both Atticus and his younger son, Scott, hold Scott responsible.

After he is told Scott has committed suicide, Atticus travels to Mexico to retrieve the body, but soon begins to suspect murder. Atticus is not only a page-turning mystery, but also a satisfying redemption tale in which Hansen’s efficient and powerful descriptive prose is comparable to that of John Steinbeck—seemingly effortless, yet immensely effective.
