Staff Pick: Small Mercies by Dennis LeHane

Set in South Boston in 1974 when court ordered school busing began, this book skillfully evokes the joy and the tragedy of the whole time period. Though this is fiction, it is rich in the details of the city at the time and very believable. I know. I was living there then.
