    Radio Bookclub: Tiny

    Radio Bookclub: Tiny

    The April selection for the Radio Bookclub was Tiny by Colorado author Mairead Case. The book is a contemporary, poetic retelling of Sophocles’ Antigone, set in the mossy greens and foggy grays of the Pacific Northwest. Instead of two brothers who kill each other in a civil war, Tiny has a brother who kills himself after coming home from a far-away war.
