¿I thought I was getting cranked,¿ Sarah Shun-lien Bynum told New York Magazine of the moment when she received the call informing her that her dreamlike debut novel, Madeline is Sleeping, was a 2004 National Book Award finalist. ¿I think it¿s an incredibly odd choice,¿ she humbly reflects.

I picked this book up at random in the new books section at the library, and it was fabulous! The story is basically about the life and experiences (mostly positive or funny) of a young woman teaching middle school. The writing was amazing, and, though it is really hard to describe, it was kind of like reading a very long series of haikus that tell a story. There wasn't an excess of description, but there was more than enough detail to understand what was happening. You had the sense, more than once, that you'd just read a little jewel of a poem/story, almost like a story-length lustre. I adored it and look forward to reading more from Shun-Lien Bynum!

This is a must read. I absolutely loved it. I've been looking for well written, non-morbid, linked stories, and Ms. Bynum delivered beautifully. I highly recommend this to anyone who's ever felt unfulfilled in his or her career or life.
