From acclaimed author Dave Eggers, THE EYES & THE IMPOSSIBLE is an extraordinary tale of a wild dog but it is also so much more: a glimpse into the consciousness of the wild creatures around us and within us. Both profound and funny, this tale takes us into a place where we could perhaps coexist and raise each other up to dream of a more beautiful world. I recommend this book for kids and adults alike, and it would make a thoughtful graduation gift.

lori RECOMMENDS:

The fraught political history of contemporary Haiti is the subject of Ben Fountain’s exhilarating second novel, Devil Makes Three. Fountain delves into the societal problems that plague post-Aristide Haiti through the conflicted private lives of his carefully drawn characters—citizens of the island nation, US expats, and ostensible American aid workers. The narrative is propelled by an exciting plot involving the race to find a sunken Spanish galleon (perhaps one of Columbus’s) and Washington’s machinations in Haitian politics. But it is Fountain’s descriptive power in unspooling the perceptions and motivations of his characters that elevates this novel from compelling suspense to a fascinating psychological study as his actors struggle to identify their place in modern-day Haiti. A rich, immersive, and unforgettable novel.
