The Biblioracle offers his recommendations

1. "The Moviegoer" by Walker Percy

2. "The Round House" by Louise Erdrich

3. "People Who Eat Darkness" by Richard Lloyd Parry

4. "Thirteen Girls" by Mikita Brottman

5. "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" by Carson McCullers

— Heather F., Brooklyn, N.Y.

"The Moviegoer" would be in the Biblioracle Book Club along with "Pacific." For Heather, I'm recommending the Biblioracle Book Club-approved "Blood Meridian" by Cormac McCarthy.

1. "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" by Ben Fountain

2. "The View from Penthouse B" by Elinor Lipman

3. "What Are You Looking At: 150 Years of Modern Art" by Will Gompertz

4. "The Fire Chronicle" by John Stephens

5. "Double Feature" by Owen King

— Beverly N., Chicago

Contemporary drama with doses of wit seems to fit the bill for Beverly. "The Mothers" by Jennifer Gilmore.

1. "We the Animals" by Justin Torres

2. "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter

3. "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn

4. "The Dinner" by Herman Koch

5. "Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles

— Pat A., Wilmette

I think Pat is going to enjoy the amazing sentences in Annie Dillard's year in the Blue Ridge, "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek."
