Lottery by Patricia Wood

It is such a treat to find a great book! I found this at the library last week and really enjoyed it. Set in Everett, Washington, it is the story of a not-retarded man who wins the lottery. One's IQ has to be 75 or below to be retarded, and his is 76, hence the not-retarded label. It is a dear story of friendship and loss and love. If you enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time you are likely to enjoy Lottery by Patricia Wood as well.

Thank you for the nice mention of LOTTERY!
It's so cool to find readers who enjoyed my novel.
I also have a great time participating with book clubs by speaker phone- if it works out for my schedule,
Thanks again and much aloha!

How cool is that (referring to the 7/14/08 comment).

I haven't read either of the two books you referenced here but I will now be looking for them.
