This week's selection is a novel ripped from the headlines . . . of your local paper. This fall, Pennsylvania's Governor and General Assembly have been fighting over gun control legislation. What better time for a darkly comic novel, by a Pennsylvania author and set in Philadelphia, about a gun-violence victim-turned-vigilante who strikes a blow for peace . . . with a gun?
