blacktop wasteland was one of my favorite thrillers of 2020 & i couldn't wait to dig into s. a. cosby's 2nd book.
i was not disappointed!
cosby writes rural noir like no one else. relatable, flawed characters, great sense of place with a storyline that packs a mean punch-this is a kick-ass thriller with race, revenge, family & friendship driving the dark & often violent narrative.
if you require nice happy endings or are uncomfortable with good people doing some really bad things to protect their loved ones, this is not the book for you.
otherwise dive in & enjoy the ride!

with observations & meditations as free-ranging as the natural world she writes about, this collection of essays is inspiring, breathtaking & intimate.
the part where she writes about watching the massive migration of songbirds from the top deck of the empire state building will stay with me a long time & the imagery of the migrating birds becoming "trapped" by the uplights of the twin towers memorial is haunting.
i highly recommend this book!

I love Susan Orlean's writing -- especially her ability to take a relatively unknown topic and bring it to life.

The Library Book centers around the devestating fire at the Los Angeles Public Library on April 29, 1986 that destroyed over 400,000 books, but ultimately it's a love letter to the public library system and the significant contribution they bring to communities all over the country. Part history of libraries, part true crime, The Library Book will appeal to history buffs and bibliophiles alike.
