My Biggest Contemporary Surprise of 2012 Was:


The Rest Is Silence by Scott Fotheringham is the kind of book that is simply underrated by media and publicity in consideration that it comes from a smaller publishing company, Goose Lane Editions, and though I expected it to be only about biology, science, and the environment, the novel itself is so much more in our assumptions and its philosophical standpoint. It’s a wonderful book that I would encourage anyone to pick up and read! If you’re interested in reading my review, you can read it here.
