Caught My Eye, Week of 9/14/09

#1

Hurry Down Sunshine: A Father’s Story of Love and Madness by Michael Greenberg.  I saw this in my Random House newsletter this week.  It is Greenberg’s memoir of his daughter’s mental illness.  Amazon reviewer Daphne Durham describes it as “an unforgettable story of a young girl’s descent into madness, told through the eyes of a harried and helpless father trying desperately to bring her back.”

American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from Poe to the Polps and American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from the 1940s PUntil Now is the two-volume anthology of horror stories collected by Peter Straub.  Thinking these would be great reads around Halloween this year!

Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness is Book Two in the Chaos Watching series, the first being The Knife of Never Letting Go, which I of course want to read first.  I was reminded of this series by Jenny at jennysbook.wordpress.com.  I don’t know how to describe the plot quickly, so I’ll just say that is looks great and I can’t wait to start reading these books!
