"Strangers is a remarkably good book for a reader sufficiently attentive to hear its quiet power, to let it work in its distinctive way."—Boston Globe "The poems of David Ferry’s Strangers are in fact one book, and it is a splendid one. There is the same austere and poignant voice throughout, asking the unanswerable things, speaking of all.   Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the latest thriller from C.L. Taylor, Strangers. If you love a thrilling, tense and suspenseful read then you will love this book. A big thank you to publisher Avon Books for provided the arc and some much needed light relief. Here's what it's all about: Source: Netgalley About the.

Published here for the first time, What’s Your Story? showcases a selection of two hundred stories from the Strangers Project. Two major factors should be considered as operative in the popularity potentials of this book- a novel dedicated to the cause of pure medicine. First, the sometimes inexplicable and almost morbid fascination medical data, even scientific medical data, holds for many laymen. Second, the selection of the book as January Literary Guild. The story itself comes in a poor third.

The Strangers Book explores how various nineteenth-century African American writers radically reframed the terms of humanism by redefining what it meant to be a stranger.

The writers in Mothers and Strangers explore the reliability of memory, examine their family dynamics, and come to terms with the past.

We often say that a book has changed our lives. But it’s rare to say that a book made us more human. This is a big statement, I know, but This Brilliant Darkness feels as transformative and essential as anything I have read in years.
