Multcolib Picks: While you wait for... Tenth of December
Annotation:"The everyday people, objects and occurrences in this collection of short stories somehow acquire the bizarre, the grotesque, and the darkly satirical." -Library Journal
Annotation:"Erdrich combines a supple, poetic style with a vividly realized setting and unforgettable characters, often setting up complex, interlocking narratives." -BookList
Annotation:"Full-tilt and fulminating satirist Shteyngart is mordant, gleeful, and embracive as he funnels today’s follies and atrocities into a devilishly hilarious, soul-shriveling, and all-too plausible vision of a ruthless and crass digital dystopia in which techno-addled humans are still humbled by love and death." -BookList
Annotation:"As questing a philosopher as he is a canny storyteller, the author of Infinite Jest fashions complex tales rife with shrewd metaphysical inquiries, eviscerating social critiques, and twisted humor." -BookList
