Was thinking the other day about books that really shook up my brain. And of course there was that list of five deadly reads I tossed out in the wold. But I forgot to mention the incredibly moving and unusual novel of family, love and loss called THE MAN ON THE CEILING by Steve and Melanie Tem, two first-class storytellers who I had the great fortune to work with while at the Odyssey Writing Workshop in 2005. A few years back I interviewed them for the late lamented Internet Review of Science Fiction. If you want a behind the scenes tour of a beauty of a book, please read it and then go get the book!
