Son of Peace Like a River
Good news Leif Enger fans! The author of Peace Like a River will be releasing his follow-up novel, So Brave, Young and Handsome, pretty soon before very long. If you haven't read Enger's first offering, stop whatever you are doing right now, purchase or borrow the book and read it. No, savor it. No, drink in each chapter, page, sentence, word and syllable of this incredibly well-crafted tale of family, heartache, humor, miracles, redemption and peace. Enger's prose is so thick with metaphor that it reads at times like really fine poetry. And for you iPod devotees, Audible.com has Peace Like a River as a downloadable audiobook. (I just downloaded it this morning.) So whattaya waitin' fer?
