Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books.
Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia, who is now blogging at A girl and her books. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour,
Mari @ Mari Reads is the May host!
As for my mailbox:
Books for review:
From Harper Collins, I received
Quarantine: Stories By Rahul Mehta
The characters in Quarantine—openly gay Indian-American men—are Westernized in some ways, with cosmopolitan views on friendship and sex, while struggling to maintain relationships with their families and cultural traditions. Grappling with the issues that concern all gay men—social acceptance, the right to pursue happiness, and the heavy toll of listening to their hearts and bodies—they confront an elder generation’s attachment to old-country ways. Estranged from their cultural in-group and still set apart from larger society, the young men in these lyrical, provocative, emotionally wrenching, yet frequently funny stories find themselves quarantined.

(Has anyone read The Magnolia League? My 13 year old daughter and I are embarking on a road trip in a few weeks, and she suggested listening to it. I’m not sure what’s giving it the 15+ suggested age range, and I’m not sure either of us is looking for fodder for mother daughter talks on this particular trip).
