Nancy's Picks

One of Nancy's very early memories (at maybe 5 or 6) was a gift of a book with only words, no pictures.  This anthology of poems & tales began a lifelong fascination with language - and the music of language.  To this day she is drawn to novels thick with gorgeous prose that enlivens the plot:  Faulkner (of course), Ian McEwan, Michael Ondaatje, Colum McCann, Anthony Marra, Andrea Barrett, David Mitchell.  And her hidden fascination: quirky history & true crime stories - especially when they are one and the same.
