Book of the Day: Tirra Lirra by the River, by Jessica Anderson

Posted By: RebeccaOppenheimer

Before I got very far into Tirra Lirra by the River, I realized: this is probably what really happened to Anne Shirley when she grew up. For those who don't know, Anne Shirley is the imaginative, irrepressible protagonist of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables and most of its several sequels. And, like Nora Porteous, Tirra Lirra's protagonist, she is perhaps a bit too fond of Tennyson's "The Lady of Shallott." Anne gets a happy ending, including, eventually, a husband who appreciates her spirit. Nora is not so lucky.

Larry Miller reviews his pick for Book of the Day, The Cost of Courage:

France under the occupation (1940-1945) has drawn increasing scholarly interest in recent years.  Long ago, many treatments tended to be “either/or”: either one was a craven collaborationist or one was a heroic resistant.  With the passage of time, however, the story of the occupation has become more complex, more nuanced, more challenging and, oddly enough, more affecting as a human story of individuals under extraordinary duress.
