This was given to me as a gift and, though I don’t often read fiction, this is one of my absolute favorites. It follows multiple storylines of various people living downtown New York City. Colum McCann somehow manages to intertwine all these lives together in subtle ways. It makes you wonder just how elaborate each and every life is..and what are you missing by just passing them by?

Remember, reading a half-hour of fiction just before bed will get you out of your head, let go of the stressors and worries of the day, and allow you to get a restful sleep. From personal experience, it works better than anything else!
