One of the books we’ve been keeping our eye on is Room by Emma Donoghue. In Sunday’s NYT Book Review, Aimee Bender (The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake) calls it,

…a truly memorable novel, one that can be read through myriad lenses — psychological, sociological, political. It presents an utterly unique way to talk about love, all the while giving us a fresh, expansive eye on the world in which we live.

Libraries are beginning to show heavy reserves (ratios of 10:1 in some cases).
