While I was on twitter the other day, Jen from Devourer of Books mentioned that every book she read recently took place in Ann Arbor. Naturally, I immediately wanted to read every single one and asked her which books they were. Most of you already know this, but for any newer readers, I grew up just outside of Ann Arbor* and then attended The University of Michigan for both undergrad and law school. I adore Ann Arbor and miss it very much. The only book I’ve really read that takes place there is Charles Baxter’s The Feast of Love. While reading it, I loved being able to accurately picture the story. So I decided that this week’s TBR post would feature those books that Jen mentioned.
*From the Detroit Metro Times: Dream House as a whole is an excellent portrait of “the stereotypes that distinguish posh Ann Arbor, backwoods Dexter, and Ypsilanti.” While I take offense to the label of my hometown as “backwoods”, I LOVE that it gets mentioned in a review and can’t wait to read about the stereotypes.
