One of the Great Books of 2010 Revisited

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

If you haven't read it, you should add it to your list.  Along with books by Yiyun Li and Hilary Mantel (sorta--I think the pub date was 2009 for her work) this was one of the stand-out books of 2010, charming and pointed and funny and poignant and endearing.  I truly hope that Ms. Simonson can rise to the level of this book in her next, which I anxiously await.
