Want the list of books reviewed in your local papers this Sunday? Done! Here you go!
The Pioneer Press's Sunday Life is all about the Winter Carnival 2013 this week, but had room to feature A Carnival of Killing by former Dispatch/Pioneer Press staffer, which is a murder mystery filled with lots of Winter Carnival lore.
Titles reviewed and featured in the Star Tribune's Books section included:
- Kind of Kin by Rilla Askew - a novel set in Oklahoma about a family torn apart by an immigration law
- Heat: Adventures in the World's Firey Places by Bill Streever - nature nonfiction about the hottest places on earth. (Fun fact: Streever's last book was Cold: Adventures in the World's Frozen Places.)
- The Tell by Hester Kaplan - a novel about the effect on a couple's marriage when an aging but charismatic actor moves in next door
- Kill Anything That Moves by Nick Turse - nonfiction documenting civilian deaths in the Vietnam War
- The Drowning House by Elizabeth Black - a novel about a photographer investigating family secrets in Galveston, Texas
