Signs and Wonders by Alix Ohlin

Unputdownable: It's the literary equivalent of a Paul Simon album: crisp, focused, lovely, and lasting. Plot notes: Sixteen short stories about connectedness—between friends, families, and lovers—and the predicaments that come from navigating those relationships. Learn something: Ohlin's characters are so genuine you'll be reminded of people you know, love, and hate. For better or worse, you may even see yourself in the pages.
