Selection for May—Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian.
Chris Bohjalian has often gone to the well of current social issues for his plots — e.g. Midwives (midwifery), Before You Know Kindness (animal rights). If he doesn’t exactly rip his stories from the headlines, he cuts them with care and studies his subjects thoroughly. In the Guest Room, Bohjalian’s newest, we learn a great deal about human trafficking, and for those who value the well-researched novel, the author’s 18th book will please. (Review written by Anita Shreve for the Washington Post)
Check with your local library branch for a copy of the book.
