“I love the portrayal of famous creatures and characters from African-American folklore being brought to life. Not only that, but the growth the main character goes through to get over his best friend’s passing is done very well.”

Happy New Year! There’s nothing like starting a new year than by reflecting on all of the great things that happened in the past year. At the Pratt, we are doing just that. Here’s a look at the books our staff couldn’t put down in 2019.
“Joshua Ferris’ novel is a laugh out loud highly original
portrait of the modern American corporate business world. The book is narrated
by “we” — the employees. One of the funniest novels ever — in a
tough genre to write.”
