Anyone out there that hasn't read this book - or isn't acquainted with Lorrie Moore - I just posted it into the system.  I hesitated for several days, not willing to part with such a wonderful book - but I just have too many books.   Her prose and writing style are so sumptuous she should be declared a national treasure.  This was a New York Times BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR - and with good reason.  

Grab it now - you won't be sorry!!
