As a self professed book geek, A Literary Mind is a nook of a place where its blogger can discuss all things books-related, be it bookish thoughts (such as her hatred for tiny fonts) to Challenges (She’s currently working her way through 4 different challenges).

An introduction to literary theory. Perhaps. Or perhaps this is more of an essay on theory from a Marxist slant. Terry Eagleton's prefatory statement: "Hostility to theory usually means an opposition to other people's theories and an oblivion of one's own" seems ironic in a book, though innocuously entitled Literary Theory: An Introduction, that works instead to decimate most /5.

A quiet gut-punch of a debut, Coster’s novel is a family saga set against the landscape of gentrifying Brooklyn. After five years away in Pittsburgh—a city whose primary appeal is its distance from Brooklyn—Penelope Grand, former artist and current bartender, reluctantly returns to Bedford-Stuyvesant to care for her ailing and beloved father, Ralph.
