Both of today's readings come from novels that take their characters to foreign places: in Rebecca Dinerstein's The Sunlit Night, it's arctic Norway, and in Edan Lepucki's California, it's the wilderness of a world falling apart. The Sunlight Night is in bookstores now, and California is newly out in paperback.
