December Title: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

Ursula todd was born in 1910 and is fated to die and be reborn over and over until she "gets it right".  Life after life after life: Atkinson's telling title suggest not some glorious afterworld but the structure of this remarkable novel, about an English girl born in February, 1910.  In fact, Ursula is stillborn in an opening chapter but emerges a healthy baby in the next; and the author then hopscotches through time, circling back to offer alternate versions of Ursula's life.  Did Ursula endure an unwanted pregnancy, see her broher die of influenza, enter into a sour marriage, or not? Did she survive World Warr II Britain or instead marry a German and face down Hitler, a gun in her hand? Atkinson delivers a clear understanding that one life can take different avenues, and what a difference that can make.  (Library Journal)

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book.  Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

January Title: Passing by Nella Larsen

When childhood friends Clare Kendry and Irene Redfield come across each other at a white-only restaurant, Irene learns her estranged friend has severed all ties to their African American community and is now married to a bigoted white man unaware of her heritage. Swinging between allure and repulsion, their revived relationship becomes a stage upon which questions of identity, sexuality, belonging, and self-invention play out.

Abrim with stifled desires, Nella Larsen's searing portrait of these women's inner cadences straddles the edges of things--communities, identities, races, and speech--and ultimately lands somewhere absolute and subversive: a place that defies categorization.

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

February Title: Kindred by Octavia Butler

The first science fiction written by a black woman, Kindred has become a cornerstone of black American literature. This combination of slave memoir, fantasy, and historical fiction is a novel of rich literary complexity. Having just celebrated her 26th birthday in 1976 California, Dana, an African-American woman, is suddenly and inexplicably wrenched through time into antebellum Maryland. After saving a drowning white boy there, she finds herself staring into the barrel of a shotgun and is transported back to the present just in time to save her life. During numerous such time-defying episodes with the same young man, she realizes the challenge she’s been given: to protect this young slaveholder until he can father her own great-grandmother.

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

March Title: The Blind Assasin by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood takes the art of storytelling to new heights in a dazzling novel that unfolds layer by astonishing layer and concludes in a brilliant and wonderfully satisfying twist. Told in a style that magnificently captures the colloquialisms and clichés of the 1930s and 1940s, The Blind Assassin is a richly layered and uniquely rewarding experience.

It opens with these simple, resonant words: "Ten days after the war ended, my sister drove a car off the bridge." They are spoken by Iris, whose terse account of her sister Laura's death in 1945 is followed by an inquest report proclaiming the death accidental. But just as the reader expects to settle into Laura's story, Atwood introduces a novel-within-a- novel. Entitled The Blind Assassin, it is a science fiction story told by two unnamed lovers who meet in dingy backstreet rooms. When we return to Iris, it is through a 1947 newspaper article announcing the discovery of a sailboat carrying the dead body of her husband, a distinguished industrialist.

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.
