Now Available: Where Things Come Back in paperback

I saw this lovely new edition of one of my favorite books from last year, and I thought I would share it–if only to have a chance to tell you that my post about this book (If you like… Sufjan Stevens) is one of the most popular posts on this blog.  I assume the traffic has something to do with those shiny stickers… Everyone loves an award winner, right?

Just between you and me: I was rather surprised that WTCB won the Printz medal.  I thought it was, um, too quirky to win.  Don’t get me wrong.  I liked the book.  I liked it a lot actually.  I just know a lot of people who probably wouldn’t.  They would say it was too introspective or too disjointed or just too slow.  Other people will read all the reviews that compare it to Catcher in the Rye and roll their eyes without even giving it a chance.

Patient readers with an appreciation for quirky characters, this one is for you. I recommend it.
