Border Songs Now in Paperback

One of my favorite books from last year was Jim Lynch's Border Songs. It hardly seems like a full year has gone by since I read it but today is the day that Border Songs hits the bookstores in paperback.

This is what I had to say about the book in June 2009.

I'll repeat that fans of the cult classic Confederacy of Dunces will almost certainly enjoy Border Songs because the main characters of the two books could be cousins. This one is fun and Jim reminded me that it was picked as one of the best books of 2009 by the Washington Post, Toronto Star and others. If you enjoy unusual novels, you should take a look at this one.


  1. Thanks, Sam! I checked your review and since I loved Confederacy, this one sounds good!

  2. Jenclair, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I'm often a bit nervous about recommending "quirky" books to folks because some people really don't "get" them. Let me know what you think.
