No One is Here Except All of Us

A beautiful book that is equal parts Everything is Illuminated and the Tiger's Wife.  It is a sad story about escape, growing up, and community, told with a poet's ear for language and a child's mind for imagery.  Tragic but ultimately hopeful, this is my favorite novel of 2012 (so far).

The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides

Another great novel from the author of The Virgin Suicides and Middlesex! A lingering exploration of relationships, love, and life paths, this novel forms an intriguing, 1980's parallel to the 'marriage plot' of the Victorian novel, becoming its own startling tale of young love, longing, travel and selfhood. A must-read!
