Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: A Short Stay in Hell by Steven L Peck
Recommended by: Joseph
Imagine that Hell is an infinite library and the only way to escape is to locate your biography. A slow and unpromising beginning quickly spirals out of control into a nightmare of loneliness, tedium, and gore. This story will make you consider your life and choices through the lenses of space and time, of eternity. But do yourself a favor and read Jorge Luis Borges' The Library of Babel first.
