May 8, by Gina Webb Do we choose the books we read? Or do they find us? Or having a plan but junking it in favor of a certain sudden clicking in my synapses that says, Walk down this aisle. I like stumbling onto books. Finding them in unexpected places: Each one answered some question I barely knew was in my head until I started reading.
The books that have ended up in my house lately are all about children: But like a dream, much of the pleasure comes from letting it work on you, not getting too crazy about extracting the meaning. I used to love picking through the advance readers copies at local independent bookstore Tall Tales when I worked there.
They still let me go through the ARCs at Tall Tales, and recently, just like old times, I found The Chronology of Water, by Lidia Yuknavitch, sitting there under the radar between a couple of young adult books, its gray paper cover-bra hiding a bared breast still intact. Chuck Palaniuk loved it though he may not count, being in her writing group.
Yuknavitch is also the author of three novels and claims Kathy Acker as one of her influences. Smell like paper and trees? Despite our greater knowledge and ability to speak to the doctors, are we really any more clear on why? Do we do a better job of accepting the loss?

The boy was back in his room, drugged with morphine, sleeping peacefully for the first time in days. The doctors were explaining things, earnestly and patiently, but Titania was having trouble following along.
Read the rest here in the New Yorker. Adrian adds three humans who find themselves lost in the park, each one reeling from a broken heart. Their new mortal friends, busy reviewing their failed relationships, are swept into the path of the fairies; they join forces to survive.
Shelf Awareness has a regular feature called Opening lines from a book we want to read, usually chosen by editor Marilyn Dahl. We face glowing white headlights of cars following us, our sneakers pressed against the back hatch door.
This is our joy—his and mine—to sit turned away from our moms and dads in this place that feels like a secret, as thought they are not even in the car with us. They have just taken us out to dinner and now we are driving home. What I know for certain right now is that I love him, and I need to tell him this fact before we return to our separate houses, next door to each other.
We are both five. Read the rest of this first chapter here. The bottom hem just skims the carpet as I shift my weight left and then right, my eyes in the mirror watching the full skirt tilting like a bell.
I gather the folds of the dress in my hands, the way the women do on Little House on the Prairie, and bustle around for a minute or two before the door opens. She just stands there and keeps her hand on the knob….Plot Summary (2). The Tokyo engineer Kariya arrives on a primitive tropical island to drill a well to provide water for the sugar mill.
