I came to this computer just now to see what a handful of these new Florence paragraphs look like on this big screen, because I will never believe in the sentences I make until I see them and remake them and endlessly reshape them until they are set, a tableau vivant. When I arrived, this bit of thrilling something was right here, waiting for me:
A.A. Omer, who just hours ago named Small Damages number one within the Best Writing of 2012 category, has today named this book of mine to her top five reads of the year. Here, on this list, it joins Gone Girl, Drowning Instinct, Pandemonium, and Blood Red Road.
I have no idea how I got this lucky, but I hope you don't mind if I directly quote:
2) Small Damages by Beth KephartA.A. Omer, I need to throw you a party. A very happy new year to you!
Every paragraph, sentence and word was important and a story that could’ve been dull was made captivating. Werewolves, vampires, dystopian worlds are fun but sometimes it’s everyday life and everyday problems that’s the most interesting.
