Charles Frazier's newest novel Thirteen Moons is worth reading. Thomas King's novels are all really good (Green Grass, Running Water is my favorite of his).

Since you already have at least two Canadians on there, I'll add a third: Carol Shields. Trust me. Start with The Stone Diaries.

In spite of my heavy reading load this summer, I think I'll still have to find time to squeeze in my traditional summer re-reading of David McFarlane's Summer Gone. I love that book so much.

Nancy Drew, the whole series, makes good summer reading. If you want to see good detective fiction at work, that is. There is also Borges, but you wouldn't care for harsh reading in a summer.

Best,

Andy

I'm reading Timothy Egan's The Worst Hard Time, about people on the High Plains who stuck out the Dust Bowl. I picked it up at the new downtown bookstore in Grinnell's old Cunningham's Drug Store. So far, it's been a pretty good read.

everyone tells me kite runner (khaled Hosseini) is excellent. i own it but have yet to read it. I'm a little too buried in the diss to read for pleasure. His second novel has been reviewed pretty positively, too. Forget the title. Okay, a thousand splendid suns, google tells me.
