Staff Reviews

When it's cold outside, relax with a haunting novel that's even colder. The story that Banks tells will stay with you long after you've read the final page.

~ recommended January, 2013


In The Sweet Hereafter, Russell Banks tells a story that begins with a school bus accident. Using four different narrators, Banks creates a small-town morality play that addresses one of life's most agonizing questions: when the worst thing happens, who do you blame?
