Book Nook: The Swallows, by Lisa Lutz


I love writers who are unpredictable. That's one reason I am a huge fan of the novelist Lisa Lutz. I never know what to expect from her and her latest novel "The Swallows" certainly came as a total surprise to me. This is a book about female rage and a gender war at a boarding school. She is so clever and this story is so very compelling.

Heaven only knows what her next book will be about-I'm certainly looking forward to reading it!

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro LibraryWright Memorial Public Library, and Microsun Lamps.
