All The Living

Status: Bookseller Picks

 

My commute, nearly two hours (one way!), affords me ample reading time. I generally read two books a week and I've been doing this commute for close to five years. That said, All the Living  --  a spare but moving tale of damaged lovers struggling for redemption on a Kentucky tobacco farm in the early 1980's -- is one of top 10 books I've read over that time span. Morgan's novel is sure to be among the most raved about debuts of 2009, and, you heard it here first, but I'll bet it's nominated for the National Book Award too!

I'm a sucker for a good cover, and I really like this one. Thanks for the recommendation!
