2008 Fovourites

Writer and avid reader Laura Atkinson offers her best reads for 2008:
Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill
My Dream of You by Nuala O'Faolain .
Children of the Day by Sandra Birdsell
Moral Disorder by Margaret Atwood

I did not read Lullabies for Little Criminals but it is on my list. Anything by the late great Irish writer Nuala O'Faolain is first rate. Most of her books are in Mary J.Black Library. I enjoyed Children of the Day by Manitoba writer Sandra Birdsell. Her novel, The Russlanders is one of my lifetime favourites. Moral Disorder by Atwood is a collection of her incomparable stories. I read the first story in the Guardian when I was in England. This story is a masterpiece and it alone makes the price of the book worthwhile.
