What a Character

April 30, 2022

Happy Independent Bookstore Day!

The four works of fiction this week, including two debuts, are character-driven stories. Their authors have created memorable protagonists that both hark back to past classics and to the near future. Two of them show the rise to power of unlikely candidates, both immigrants to America, and Puget Sound figures in both debuts. All are completely original. Plus, a book of poems to feed your spirit.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
