Under the Radar Recommendations
A bit of blatant self promotion:
Over at my book/movie/TV blog, A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy, I'm participating in a multiblog extravaganza: Under the Radar Recommendations, in which a number of us lit bloggers write about old and new books and authors who have fallen "under the radar" and who we think deserve attention. It was organized by Colleen Mondor of Chasing Ray.
So if you're looking for a book to read, check it out.
