Today on Books+ the Merciless Gods of Christos Tsiolkas' imagination. He is famously raw, even violent, while managing tenderness and complexity at the same time. With him on the bookshelf is another complex writer – Robert Desssaix with his collection of memoir-essays, What Days are For. Jane Smiley's latest project is a three volume story of one family from Iowa, collectively called The Last Hundred Years. And here she talks about the first volume, Some Luck. And we bring you the sequel to Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project, with The Rosie Effect.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
