Steve Scher sits down with librarian Nancy Pearl to talk about two books.

Pearl says Tim Horvath's collection of short stories, "Understories," showcases a good example of elastic realism. The stories are rooted in reality but stretched into unexpected and odd places.

Ted Thompson's book, "The Land of Steady Habits," is a character-driven novel with exciting writing around the theme of living with and escaping from your past.
