Sarah

Sarah is one of the store's three co-owners, along with Kelly and Paul. She loves football, nine-ball, and the beauty of the buckyball. Sarah likes anything edgy and/or funny YA-- John Green, Amy Ryan, etc.

She also likes vaguely intellectual fiction-- Selected Works of TS Spivet, etc.

She also asks a good question: It's rather hard to explain why Willa Cather and Tom Robbins sit side by side on my pick shelf.  Is there a genre for that?

This book is shelved in our fiction section but it is a bit of a mystery, a bit of a fairy tale, a bit of anthropology, a bit of sci-fi, and a whole lot of wonderful. It is creative and intense and one of those books that I try to get everyone to read because it is so darn good. --Sarah
