I had to fly to LA twice last week, so I knocked out two totally lovely novels.
Monster Island by David Wellington: A zombie novel that manages to both hit the center of the genre and introduce innovative elements. I liked it.
Everyman by Philip Roth: My favorite living author has written another amazing novel, centered around one of the most fascinating, intense topics at hand…death. Highly recommended. (And if you haven’t read the Human Stain, you should.)
