I recently enjoyed reading the short story, “The Year of Getting to Know Us” and wanted to read something else by Canin. I found his latest book, America America (2008), at the library and started it this morning. The book takes place during the Nixon era in the 1970s and is about Henry Bonwiller, a powerful senator from New York who is running for president of the United States. The narrator, Corey Sifter, rises from a working-class family to become his aide, and then, in a mix of loyalty, politics, love, sex and all the accompanying questions of truth and morality, the story gets complicated.

I’m looking forward to reading more!

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
