Crimes and Passion

February 24, 2024

Though we get an extra day this month (thanks to the leap year), folklore suggests February 29th is bad luck. The characters in these four novels and an affecting memoir have had their share—many also facing overwhelming odds and tragic circumstances. But what binds them all is a sense of hope and love, displaying a range of literary gifts by writers who expand the limits of tragedy and comedy.

Happy reading,
