Here are the four books that I decided to suggest for my student librarian interview on Thursday!
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Equipped with more lives than a cat, Ursula uses her numerous resurrections to defy destiny and possibly save mankind as World War II looms ever closer.
Harvest by Jim Crace
The morning after the harvest, two ominous columns of smoke and the unexpected visitors that accompany them disrupt the superficially idyllic life on a small English hamlet.
The Entertainer: Movies, Magic, and My Father's Twentieth Century by Margaret Talbot
Actor Lyle Talbot's story as told by his daughter in this part-family memoir, part-social history vividly recreates the magic of cinema during the golden age of Hollywood.
Between Man and Beast: An Unlikely Explorer, the Evolution Debates, and the African Adventure That Took the Victorian World by Storm by Monte Reel
Scientist and adventurer Paul Du Chaillu hunts the legendary gorilla for three years in the African jungles to fast track his career and unintentionally fuels the raging evolution debates.
