Currently on Alice's Bookshelf.............
“Time and Again,” by Jack Finney, which I missed in the ’70s and just discovered — I am a huge fan of all time travel. “Inside the Dream Palace,” by Sherill Tippins, the history of the Chelsea Hotel, since I’m a Chelsea girl. “The Death of Bees,” by Lisa O’Donnell, a dark, fierce first novel that is a page-turner and a fairy tale turned inside out.
