This is my reading list for the beautiful beautiful upcoming vacation. If I didn't pick the book(s) you suggested, please don't take it personally--it was likely just that your suggestion(s) were not available at my library, or I'd already them.

The Giant, O'Brien by Hilary Mantel
Bella Abzug: An Oral History by Suzanne Braun Levine and Mary Thom
Crescent by Diana Abu-Jaber
Gospel Hour by T.R. Pearson
The Professor's House by Willa Cather

Would love to get reviews on some of those when you get back, if that's possible.

Wow, my book made it onto the list! I'm very flattered. It just reminds me so much where we grew up--logging, religion, the goofy language of hicks who get some education up in them. Persevere through it--I definitely found it to be a difficult, slow, but rewarding read. The last half of the book, where he talks about the tragic histories that lead people to seek salvation, were particularly good. Have a good time in MN!
