I read Penelope Lively's Family Album at the Chicago airport and on my flight home when I went home for Thanksgiving. I would like to read Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada (though it is a translation) during the Christmas break. The title sounds poignant and caught my attention the second I saw the New York Times' 100 Notable Books list. It would be great if the Philly Free library stocks this book as I will be visiting my family in Philadelphia for Christmas.
