Empire Falls by Richard Russo
In this warmhearted and humorous novel, Russo brings the rhythms of a small New England town to life. Empire Falls, long abandoned by the logging and textile industries, is filled with a cast of characters that provide ample evidence of both the restrictions and forced intimacy of small-town life.

House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III
A novel that captures the dark side of the immigrant experience in California at the end of the 20th century. It is the story of two very different characters – one an Iranian who was an officer in the Shah's air force, the other a recovering alcoholic. Local author Dubus brings us deep inside their worlds as they clash over a modest house in the San Francisco suburbs.
