9781566895620_02356Reinhardt’s Garden by Mark Haber

Mark Haber’s little novel is a breathless epic that, in a single paragraph, transports readers from provincial Europe to the far-flung forests of South America, tracing the path of the wealthy eccentric Jacov Reinhardt and his loyal scribe in search of the elusive sense of melancholy.

It is a mesmerizing, drug-addled trot down a path of madness that strings you along page by page. Reinhardt’s Garden evokes notes of Conrad and Bolaño in a style that feels all Haber’s own.

9781501183508_23d1cThe Behavior of Love by Virginia Reeves

Ed is a behavioral psychiatrist and superintendent at an institution in Montana. And his wife, Laura, is an artist who works on her art full time.

They are, what appears to the outside world,  a beautiful, happy couple… but of course there’s more happening under the surface.

Enter the 16 year-old Penelope, who is a patient at Ed’s institution.

She is smart and beautiful and helps with the patients that are mentally disabled. When she starts a reading group for the other patients, what was once a slight flirtation starts to become love. And that’s just the start of the craziness of this story.

This novel is an exploration of human nature and behaviors, and the way we express love and how it can alter our decisions. Quite the literary fiction novel, it was difficult to put down, and easy to just read in an afternoon.

–Lojo
