What Tristaters Are Reading

        Christina Booher, Crawfordsville, Ind.
Red Dress Ink Books
       “The books are written by different people, however all tell a story about being 20-something and single. All have been laugh-out-loud funny, thought provoking and "page turners.'”

       Candy Shannon, East Price Hill
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou (Bantam; $5.99).
       “I am re-reading everything I had to read in high school. I find that 12 years after graduating, I actually ENJOY reading what was on the required list.”

       Alan Scheidt, Clifton
Rimbaud Complete, translated and edited by Wyatt Mason (Modern Library; $24.95).
       “Arthur Rimbaud was the original punk rocker, a rude, unkempt, working class bisexual who spat on social convention and burned out early. He also revolutionized modern poetry with verse that is breathtaking in its originality and earthiness. That he completed his entire body of work by age 19 only makes his genius all the more compelling.”
