Canterbury, NH

Hope Jordan [March 2005]
Avid reader

I recommend Mary and O'Neil by Justin Cronin. It won the PEN/Hemingway award and it's beautifully written without being sentimental or sappy. It made me cry. It's, pure and simple, good literature that belongs in the pantheon of work by Russell Banks, Margaret Atwood, and John Irving.
