Something new (but really old) for 2014

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore - Robin Sloan

So contemporary fiction, literary fiction used to be the bread and butter of my reading many years ago.  Once I started reading romance, I went on a 2 year reading frenzy that included both m/f and m/m and basically forgot that any other type of story existed :D


So for 2014, I've decided to read one book a month that is contemporary fiction.  This book is my pick for January.  Do I still have the taste for this type of story???
