Hi all, just learned that The World’s Strongest Librarian selected as one of NPR’s Best Books of 2013. How cool is that? I’ve been looking at the other books, and I remain both a- and bemused that I find myself in such august company.
Mr. Tropper’s book is hilarious. It’s about a dysfunctional family (are there any novels about well-adjusted families) reconvening to sit shiva after their father’s death. It contains the best cake scene of all time. Mark my words. Mark them!
Mr. Josyph’s books is for pervs like me who need to read McCarthy’s books, then read everything else about them has ever been written. If you’re like me, step out onto the fringe and read Adventures. It’s insightful and might make you feel less alone in your McCarthy mania.
