bookshelves: history, favorites
Recommended to Lauren by: Ellen
Recommended for: people who aren't afraid of rats and people who love New York.
Read in October, 2007

** spoiler alert ** This book contained two of my favorite things: rodents and New York City. Its use of first-person narrative to give vignettes of the city then and now as seen from the life of rodents is a very effective literary technique. All in all, it slightly worries me that the only respectful treatment I've seen of September 11, 2001 in a book comes from a book about plague vectors.
