Book Recommendation: Lost Daughter Collective/Lindsey Drager

This is the first time I’ve done something like this; it’s not a book review, it’s merely a chance to tell you how much I enjoyed the novella “The Lost Daughter Collective” by Lindsey Drager. I haven’t enjoyed a book as much in years, probably going back to when I read “Stoner” a decade ago. It’s a difficult book (very post modern if you want to put a label on it), but the writing is scintillating and the idea behind the book is endlessly fascinating. I emailed the author (another thing I hardly ever do) telling her how much I enjoyed it and received a very gracious reply. I urge you to read the book, or maybe you’ve already read it, either way I’d love some feedback.

I'm a librarian living near NYC, have had several poems and stories, as well nonfiction published in various ezines. I've finally broken through in print as my novel "Where Do the Children Play?" a story based on true events concerning the kidnapping and drowning of a young boy, was published by Black Rose Writing last October. They are also publishing my second novel, "In Elysian Fields," a love story between a baseball player and a poet, due out July 4 of this year.
