Firmin Week

coverIf you haven’t been there already, it’s not too late to check out the LBC’s discussion of Firmin by Sam Savage, our Autumn Read This! selection. Also, don’t miss the post from author Savage. By the way, I highly recommend this tale of a literary rat. Firmin is among the few animal protagonists who is neither moralistic nor an allegory, he’s just a sentient rat living in a bookstore near Boston’s decrepit Scollay Square.

Update: If you hurry, you can still get in on the Firmin giveaway going on at the LBC right now.

    You should. It's a quick read and really fun, too.
