The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett is now ready for me at the Covington Branch (my test branch), while the Decatur Branch has nothing for me. This book had just a few requests for it since it’s a bit older (1997) than the other books I have on hold, but I look forward to stopping by the library on the way home and starting it soon. My first introduction to Ann Patchett was Bel Canto, which I loved. Last Spring I read her newest book Run–also terrific, also intense.
