Books Received April 30

I’ve fallen behind on posting these, but the mail has been light the last couple of days.

Little Brother comes out tomorrow. It’s definitely YA in the sense that I think it will appeal to that age more than adults, but it’s also a subversive how-to guide for teens in addition to being an exciting read. In this sense, it’s Doctorow’s most important novel.

    I agree with you on Doctorow’s book, as I found it to be, dare I say it, more like “youthpunk”? What it aimed to do, it pretty much did, and it was an engaging read.

    I’m curious to know what you’ll make of Bakker’s book. I read it in draft form a couple of years ago and it was disturbing in places.
