Books For Young Men

Author Jesse BAlls

Two books by young men are have gotten this weeks recommendation as books for young men. Jesse Balls, The Way Through Doors (Vintage Contemporaries)
is an inventive love story that is described as an experiment in narratives, by Allen Cheuse in a review for National Public Radio (NPR) on the young author's book.

John Wray's "Lowboy: A Novel
", tracks the journey of a boy trying to escape capture by his mother and the police by riding on a subway.

Sure you need more than the one sentence quotes I supplied to get a feel for the works, but I was trying to avoid giving away the entire book review by Cheuse. Go ahead and listen to his review of these books that I would mark to "buy for young men."
