NPR stories about Don Lee
Not sure what to read this summer? NPR's Susan Stamberg asked three booksellers to share their top five picks for the books you shouldn't miss. They recommend tales of con artists, grade-school spies, refugees and ranchers — plus an exploration of why stories make us human.
A New York City artist in search of a simple life decides to reinvent himself as a Brussels sprouts farmer. But reinvention is never easy: Enter his estranged brother; an on again/off again lover; a crazed developer and a host of other wacky characters and you have Don Lee's romp of a novel.
