Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
recommended by Barbara Kingsolver in her collection of essays, ‘Small Wonder.’ – which is a book-crossing book i found in the wild today at the seattle muni courthouse. i had to search a vacant desk to find it – thankfully the guard was about 50 feet away and seemed occupied.
ps. and to help me in this goal, i’m going to take a lesson from Kingsolver, and say if a novel doesn’t begin to reach me in 30 pages – out with it!
