    I just finished Little Century – a book I found at the library, knew nothing about, and was a trifle nervous about because I wasn’t sure what the cover promised. I found it completely satisfying, beautifully written, with poetic sweeps of pertinent prose, characters layered, difficult, endearing, and a plot wonderfully worked. So, I believe you to be in the right company. Thank you.
