Flight Behavior

Flight Behavior - I loved every minute of reading this book. I was actually a bit giddy in the middle, torn between finishing the book and devouring it whole. Stylistically, this book goes back to the territory of The Bean Trees and Pigs in Heaven, with a character-driven story and simple plot that lets the author's style shine and doesn't feel as research-heavy as her more recent fiction. At the same time, it's a meditation on modern life, nature, politics, isolationism, family, and marriage that would be perfect for a book group discussion.
