Cindy Dach on What to Read This Summer

by Cindy Dach | Jul-01-2007

The month of June kicked off Reading the World. As part of this project, theNBCC asked writers and readers from around the globe to recommend a book from beyond these shores. We asked Cindy Dach, visual artist, teacher, and director of marketing and events for Changing Hands Bookstore, which was named PW Bookseller of the Year, what she had to recommend. She said get your hands on a copy of "The Savage Detectives," by Roberto Bolano. 

"This is a beautiful courageous book that takes the reader through a psychologically complex tale, turning itself to a literary illusion. The translation brilliantly captures the book's original language which brings the reader deeper into the original place."
