Ron Carlson's RETURN TO OAKPINE = Elizabeth Berg's TALK BEFORE SLEEP + testicles
Someone recently asked me, "What was the last book that made you cry?" It was Ron Carlson's beautifully crafted novel Return to Oakpine, in which a dying man makes an emotional journey to the Wyoming town where he grew up, hoping to play one last gig with the guys he used to jam with in high school. Lovely, consumable literary fiction perfect for long flight, rainy afternoon or nightstand.
Look for Return to Oakpinein bookstores this week!
