Fiction book of the month, Heroes Of The Frontier

We are at the end of the month, September, 2017, when our UUAWOL fiction book of the month has been Dave Eggers, Heroes Of The Frontier. To close out the month, the quote that might be best is on page 152 when Samantha, Josie's foster sister asks her, "Do you feel like you're doing what you're supposed to be doing? That you're using your time here properly?" Josie laughed, to undercut what she'd just said, but she knew, even in her stupor, that this was the central thought that had occupied her mind for the better part of twenty years."

And it is the central thought that has occupied most thoughtful people for years. And the question for all of us is "are we using our time here properly?"

The UUAWOL fiction book of the month for October 2017 will be "My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrick Backman.
