  Weird Friends and Strange Books. I've got some strange friends. Not that the people in and of themselves are strange, mind you. What I mean is I've got some very close friends that I wouldn't normally gravitate towards, but because of circumstances throwing us together, we ended up becoming best buddies. Kirkby's book unveils the rich.   It’s a strange and wonderful thing to recognize something of yourself in a book. It’s an even stranger and more wonderful thing to recognize your own feelings in a character with whom, at first glance, you have very little in common. While the circumstances of my own life aren’t much like those of Aaron, the main character in Lori Ostlund’s AFTER THE PARADE, I was amazed at how clearly.
