This month's book is The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot By Mariane Cronin.  Copies are available at the Circulation Desk.

When a novel about death provides many occasions for laughing out loud, you know that the  author has achieved something special. First-time British novelist Cronin creates a beautiful friendship between terminally ill, 17-year -old Lenni  Pettersson and  colorful, 83-year -old Margot  Macrame which begins when they meet under extraordinary circumstances at a Glasgow hospital. Lenni ’s realization that their ages add up to 100  leads to a joint art project in which they each create a painting for every year of  their lives, making use of the  hospital’s newly established art room. As Margot  shares her stories, Lenni  gets to experience the  ups-and -downs, lost loves, and  warm connections that mark a well-lived life. Lenni ’s visits with Father Arthur in the  nearly always empty hospital chapel as she seeks answers to difficult questions with remarkable candor showcase Cronin’s strong talent for characterization and  humor. Cronin has struck just the  right balance between sensitivity and  sentimentality, making her one of  those admirable writers who does exceptionally fine work both celebrating life and  addressing death. A Hollywood film adaptation is underway. -- Booklist
