A ‘Simple’ Title With A Harmonious Price

bargain.JPGIt’s been a while since I perused River City Books’ extensive collection of bargain books, but as I was scooping up some children’s books at 15-percent off — all week, my friends, all week — I took a moment to see where else I could save. Sure enough, I plucked a dandy: A Simple Habana Melody by Oscar Hijuelos.

At the time of its release numerous book authorities listed this book, now out of print in hardcover, as a starred review. Not a shocker, since Hijuelos already had a Pulitzer Prize on sitting on his mantle. “Hijuelos is at his massively engaging best,” said Kirkus Reviews. “A masterpiece of history, music, wonder, and sorrow.” This book is “riveting.”

The price isn’t anything to sneeze at, either. RCB currently has “A Simply Habana Melody” on sale to the tune of $6.99.

Pick it up and, like me, you’ll be humming all the way home.
