Bobby Does Khaled Hosseini count as local?? Not sure if he still lives in the bay area but IMHO The Kite Runner is an amazing book.

Ruby Emam (goodreadscomruby_emam) | 3 comments In view of the current events in the Middle East the need to change the spontaneous movements, where too many innocent lives will be lost, to a full-scale Revolution has never been so strong. This will need planning, organizing and executing the plan and it all starts with raising awareness.
Those of you who have read my translation of Little Black Fish will recognize that it is a guide to action and shows a path to freedom, equality and justice. Which also explains why the book has been banned in many countries and why the author was executed.
If you know any progressive Libyans, Egyptians, Bahrainis, Yemenis, Tunisians, Africans and others who want to make a difference and are in touch with those freedom-fighters, please spread the word. The Little Black Fish

Taylor | 2 comments Is Berkeley local enough? Check out Edie Meidav's Lola, California: A Novel, a new, promising novel which I got to read recently.
