Great writing grabs you by the throat from the first sentence without ever letting go. Ms. Shoop’s latest novel “Love and Other Subjects” opens with middle school teacher Carolyn Jenkins confronting a student with a gun pointed at the belly of a classmate. What happens next establishes the tone for everything that follows in this alternately tense, hilarious and poignant tale of love, friendships across racial lines, inner city public school politics and dysfunctional family relationships… “Love and Other Subjects” is solid literary fiction.
