Friday's "Forgotten" Books and more: the links to the reviews and more; 6 April 2018

This week's books, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, this week as most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles.  I will host again next week. Patti Abbott hopes to return to hosting the week after...Amy Nolan in Library Journal provides a starred review of I Bring Sorrow and Other Stories of Transgression today...consider picking it up for yourself and asking for it at all the better libraries...

Thank you both, as well. Sorry I missed yours last week, Elgin.

It’s all good. I didn’t have a forgotten book to review this week, so it worked out fine. Thanks again.
