Another book recommendation from Philip Connors in Shelf Awareness 4/8/11:
On your nightstand now:
I just visited a cool little bookstore in Truth or Consequences, N.M.--Black Cat Books--and loaded up on used paperbacks. Among them: The Liars Club by Mary Karr (yes, I'm coming to it awfully late); The Land of Little Rain by Mary Austin (her classic about the California desert); and The River Why by David James Duncan (which my friends from the Northwest tell me is great). I also just finished two others: Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith, which offers the incomparably creepy thrill of watching a regular guy become ensnared in a murder plot almost against his will, and before that John Jeremiah Sullivan's Blood Horses, a beautiful meditation on his sportswriter father and the allure of horse racing.
