The Buddha in the Attic, Julie Otsuka book review
The Robert Morgade Library Book Club will meet Tuesday, May 6th at 1pm to discuss Buddha in the Attic by Julia Otsuka. This novel tells the story of a group of young women brought over from Japan to San Francisco as 'picture brides' nearly a century ago. Divided into eight sections, The Buddha in the Attic traces their extraordinary lives. In language that has the force and the fury of poetry, Julie Otsuka has written a singularly spellbinding novel about the American dream.

Librarian Emily is reading WINTER OF THE WORLD by Ken Follett, the second in the Century Trilogy. She thinks it's worth a read for those who enjoy historical fiction. Follett's take on major events from the 1930-50s encompasses a lot of characters and plot lines, but he doesn't get these too tangled to follow. She recommends starting with the first book (Fall of Giants) since this one follows the same families.

February's Book Club Read... Life After Life: A Novel by Kate Atkinson
On the reading list: Life After Life: A Novel: Kate Atkinson: 9780316176484: Amazon.com: Books
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. A book club selection -- I'm still not sure what I think, though a Goodreads reviewer called it a literary mash-up. Early 20th century historical fiction? Maybe. Literature is more like it. And I'm still thinking about it.
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Fascinating, complex, and totally worth reading.
BOOK REVIEW: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Trudi Montag is a Zwerg—a dwarf—short, undesirable, different, the voice of anyone who has ever tried to fit in. Eventually she learns that being different is a secret that all humans share—from her mother who flees into madness, to her friend Georg whose parents pretend he’s a girl, to the Jews Trudi harbors in her cellar.
