Silber, Joan. The Size of the World. NY: W.W. Norton, 2008.
submitted by R. Stuhr
Silber has written a handful of chapters that can stand on their own as short stories or novellas, but they are linked across time, place, and generations through American characters who have lived in and been changed by their experiences in Thailand and Mexico. This is a beautifully written book with interesting and complex characters.
On order for Burling Library.
