City of Thieves by David Benioff: Displaying high-caliber wit and charm throughout, this is a story of poets, soldiers, budding sexuality, dogs, chickens, and chess. Benioff's writing is like an Armani suit - confident, spare of excess, with each sentence set off by beautiful seams. Memorable - Amy Henry, aka Amy Cabernet Quilts.
