read reviews of classical and contemporary novels by two novelists. these pieces have humor, and a narrative edge.

Bookshelf Stories is written by Lauren Mangiaforte, and her boyfriend, fellow novelist Ian Ross. As a couple that happens to be comprised of a couple of novelists, Lauren and Ian spend a lot of time talking about books and reading. The format: autobiographical story-reviews that allow them more room to express our adoration and/or irritation of certain books than a traditional review.
