Staff Picks

In Shotgun Lovesongs Nickolas Butler writes in beautifully poetic prose about love - romantic, familial, brotherly and hometown. He delves into the wonders of rural Americana set in the small town of Little Wing, Wisconsin (which, not so ironically, is the name of a Jimi Hendrix song) and interweaves the lives of Henry, Beth, Lee, Ronnie and Kip that will have you sniffling and smiling by the end of the novel. I loved the audio version with the full cast of narrators - it really made each character's perspective more cohesive.
