from John Mark Eberhart Kansas City Star -- "12 Books of Christmas" a review of Flaw
12 Books of Christmas
This book lover is not satisfied with staying close to home, even when engaging in armchair adventures. For him or her: Flaw (175 pages; Archipelago Books; $14 paperback original), a short but powerful novel by Magdalena Tulli.
Translated from the original Polish by Bill Johnston and published in a typically lovely little soft-cover edition by the elegant Archipelago Books, this book screams, “Serious But Not Boring.”
