September Book Selection Change

The September book we picked back in December is "Salt Fish Girl" by Larissa Lai. Unfortunately, it's really hard to find: it's out of print, Chicago Public Library has no copies (the closest library with copies is UIUC downstate), and copies online are not cheap.

In the interest of discussing a book that perhaps some of us will be able to find an executive decision was made by those of us at last month's discussion - we switched the book to Lai's other novel which is in print (although CPL doesn't have copies of this one either), "When Fox is a Thousand."

I found a copy at Myopic that night...if you want to borrow it, let me know!
