A Town Like Alice

A Town Like Alice

Nevil Shute's best-known and most-loved novel, which appeared previously on the blog as a book my mom loves, and more recently, on episode 190 of WSIRN (I also talked to Fiona about it back in episode 110: When your life resembles Big Little Lies). This is the story of a young Englishwoman who miraculously survived a Japanese "death march" in World War II, and of an Australian soldier who risked his life to for help her and her friends. The book's assumptions are a bit dated, but the story endures. More info →

My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life

My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life

I am so excited to see it on sale! I loved this so much, I can't even tell you. I recommended it to Rikki and Michaela on episode 98 of What Should I Read Next. This collection truly is as much memoir as cookbook: there's a story to accompany every single recipe. (I only made one recipe—the marinated london broil—but it was a hit.) I happened to sit down and read this (like a novel) right after we got back from New York, and I especially loved the copious number of NYC stories: I kept googling Manhattan shops, neighborhoods, and restaurants while reading.
