I have a new book recommendation for you, via an actual text conversation between me and my pal Katie:
Her: Get on this book. "Let the Great World Spin." Colum McCann. It's just amazingly written.
Me: Is it about a sassy yet clumsy gal from the city looking for love and the perfect pair of shoes?
Her: She may be one of the six characters unified by a stunning historical event. But her son died in Nam.
