Hour 5: Tales from Outer Suburbia
It's not on anyone's classics book...yet. But what a fantastic read! Fantastic is a key word, because every story feels like a fantasy, yet terribly real.
Yes, I, who grew up in suburbia when nobody knew it would take over America like a disease, I always thought of suburbia as a strange world but never ventured into the corners of suburbia that Tan takes us to in this book.
The pictures are perfect and the stories so thoughtful I would love to read them again and again.
Another excellent read. Did I ever pick some great reads for the read-a-thon?!
