It's time for
another installment of the Book Rat Project, the sustained experiment in which
a book critic (my Phoenix colleague Eugenia Williamson) attempts to act
as a human algorithm for a willing subject (me).
This time around
Eugenia picked The
Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. She based her pick on my general
love of speculative fiction, and the flood of fantastic blurbs Walker has
received for her freshman effort.
