“I did not like this book at all the twilight books were better”
Let’s wrap up the shortest month of the year with a little bit of a bang, yeah? We have Barb Johnson’s collection of interlinked short stories, More of This World or Maybe Another, selected by Amy for our staff picks. Loosely revolving around The Bubble, the neighborhood laundromat in pre-Katrina, Mid-City, New Orleans, Johnson’s starkly drawn and unforgettable characters act out their lives in each story, driven by something fragile and irresistible, fighting for love, happiness, and justice. Short and bittersweet, just like February.
But it’s available for $1.99 until March 4, so you have a few more days to take advantage of it. And if you have any questions or comments about the pick? Amy’s available via our ask box.
