Ann Packer's list

Ann Packer is the award-winning author of the 2002 best-seller The Dive From Clausen’s Pier. Her new novel, Songs Without Words, has just been published by Knopf. She contributed "The List" to The Week magazine this week.

One title to make the list:
Disturbances in the Field by Lynne Sharon Schwartz

Families can be messed up in any number of ways, most heartbreakingly by grief. This is a tremendously moving novel about a family facing the most unthinkable kind of loss. It’s told without a trace of sentimentality, and the result is breathtaking.
Read about the other five books on Packer's list.
