2. Unaccustomed Earth, by Jhumpa Lahiri ($25, Knopf). Eight stories of exile, identity, disappointment and maturation.

I just finished "So Brave, Young and Handsome" by Leif Enger - WONDERFUL book! Fantastic writer - "Peace Like a River" is also one of my all-time favorites. Would love to have you interview Leif sometime - he used to be in Bemidji with MPR, I think.
I also finished my KAXE BOOK OF THE MONTH SELECTION Nevada Barr's "Winter Study" - awesome book!!! Thank you Heidi for picking such great books!
