Hailed as an heir to Anne Tyler, Wood's new novel, Any Bitter Thing, is scheduled to hit bookstore shelves May 1, 2005--nearly five years after her second novel, My Only Story, and three years since her book of short stories, Ernie's Ark, was released. An avid birder from Maine, Monica was spotted at a party in New Hampshire, where the Pushcart Prize Winning writer talked about her current favorite books.
