Reader recommendation: Memory Wall

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Each short story in Memory Wall by Anthony Doerr is a fictional gem, as satisfying as reading a full novel in one sitting. The characters are beautifully developed within elegant plots. I cared about every one of them.
