Reader recommendation: The Blindness of the Heart

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


I pulled The Blindness of the Heart, a novel by German writer Julia Franck, off the library shelf because of the quote on its front cover by A.S. Byatt and it's delivering in spades. Eloquent, absorbing, quietly horrifying – it's best book I've read this year.
