What can I say about "We are all completely beside ourselves" by Karen Joy Fowler that'll convince you to read it? Come on, imagine that elusive, magical something, the one thing that'll make you reach for a book, no questions asked. Now imagine I've just said it about this book. And read it.
(There is a very good reason I'm not telling you what the book is about. If you don't know, you'll want to be surprised.)
