I can't believe that you got to read that. I was in the Merrick Library last week and it was on the shelf and I tried to check it out but they wouldn't let me because my library is considered North Bellmore and that book could only be lent to a "Merrick Marvel" and I am not considered a marvel. Imagine that!!!!!.
It was not a book I would normally have been drawn to, but it was recommended to me. It is beautifully written and compelling and very unique and unusual. It is not a perfect book in my eyes...but I think worth reading. it is refreshing to read a book these days which is so original. If you read it, I would be interested in your opinion....especially the ending.
A question for you: how do you like being a librarian? I toy with the idea of getting an MLS....but I suppose there are not many jobs anymore as a librarian.
Ok...I'll keep Brooklyn on my "to read" list! I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge a year ago with my son on our visit.....First time...even though I grew up in Queens. Oakland is becoming a great place, blossoming, with great new restaurants. That's so cool that you are a librarian....I've thought of doing that too...but I'm sure there are a scarcity of jobs in that field now....you're lucky!
