BOTD, and Giveaway Winners


Unaccustomed Earth, a collection of stories and a novella  (the latter worth the weight of the whole stellar collection) by Jhumpa Lahiri, made several top ten lists this year, including the New York Times (read what they said here).  The laurels are piling up with good reason.  A longtime fan of short stories, my interest in them had waned over the past few years.  While the ones I read weren’t bad, per se, many of them seeemed, well, a bit precious.  And then along came Unaccustomed Earth.  And my faith in the form was reborn.

We have some winners for the Book Giveaway to announce  If I don’t have your address (Cindi, don’t worry, I have yours) please email it to me at post haste.  Drawn by my youngest son who has been needing something to do since we’ve been housebound by an ice storm all day, they are:
