2009 book 244

Joshua Gaylord's Hummingbirds
A really excellent novel about a man who teaches English at an all-girls school in Manhattan, how his life in upended when another man (named Ted Hughes, no less) comes to teach in his department, as well as the lives of two of the students at the school. Gaylord apparently teaches English at an all-girls school, so it's no wonder he gets all the little details right. The writing, as well as the story, is superb. A.
