Madagascar at the Cell Theatre

No, this isn’t a live-action version of the computer-animated film from 2005. You remember the one, right? With the usual menagerie of cutesy but annoying animals voiced by the likes of Ben Stiller and Chris Rock?

The Flowers by Dagoberto Gilb
Review by Lisa Lenard-Cook
“Sherman Alexie meets Junot Diaz,” reads one of the many glowing blurbs for Dagoberto Gilb’s new novel, The Flowers. But “Kurt Vonnegut meets Philip Roth” may be a far more apt comparison. The Flowers reveals a writer at the height of his powers, at ease with characters both unique and archetypal, a plot that caroms like a heat-seeking missile, and thematic concerns from the many faces of love, racial prejudice and violence, and hope in spite of shattered dreams.
