The Art of Eating

The Art of Eating

Author:
When a writer's admirers include Julia Child, Ruth Reichl, and Alice Waters, you know it's bound to be good food writing, one of my favorite genres (and for members of the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, take note; this would make marvelous comfort reading). Fisher explains that "our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others." This is a volume containing five of her classic memoirs and essays. More info →

Dominicana

Dominicana

Author:
From the publisher: "Fifteen-year-old Ana Cancion never dreamed of moving to America, the way the girls she grew up with in the Dominican countryside did. But when Juan Ruiz proposes and promises to take her to New York City, she has to say yes. It doesn’t matter that he is twice her age, that there is no love between them. Their marriage is an opportunity for her entire close-knit family to eventually immigrate. So on New Year’s Day, 1965, Ana leaves behind everything she knows and becomes Ana Ruiz, a wife confined to a cold six-floor walk-up in Washington Heights. Lonely and miserable, Ana hatches a reckless plan to escape. But at the bus terminal, she is stopped by Cesar, Juan’s free-spirited younger brother, who convinces her to stay. Suddenly, Ana is free to take English lessons at a local church, lie on the beach at Coney Island, see a movie at Radio City Music Hall, go dancing with Cesar, and imagine the possibility of a different kind of life in America. When Juan returns, Ana must decide once again between her heart and her duty to her family." More info →

Glittering Images

Glittering Images

Author:
This was in the 2014 Summer Reading Guide as a gripping novel. Some might try to categorize this as "religious fiction," but that wouldn’t be quite right—unless your religious fiction typically comes with lots of romance, psychoanalysis, and sex. Glittering Images is the first book in the Starbridge series, set in the Church of England in the 1930s, and later, the 1960s. That may not sound like your idea of a page turner, but the characters are rich and engaging and the stories suck you in. Each of the series' six books is self-contained, but is told from the perspective of a different character: taken together, they make a magnificent composite. Recommended by the likes of Anna Quindlen and Jacqueline Winspear. Now that’s high praise. More info →

I Capture the Castle

I Capture the Castle

Author:
I can see why this 1940s classic makes so many people’s desert island book lists. 17-year-old Cassandra is a remarkable narrator, who captures her eccentric family’s daily life—in their ramshackle old English castle—in her diary. Replete with love, magic, writer’s block, and bear costumes. More info →

Lit : A Memoir

Author:
In this, her third memoir, Karr delves into her experience of alcoholism and getting sober. She also shares stories from motherhood and how she, as a lifelong agnostic, chose to convert to the Catholic faith. Karr’s memoirs are often rightly referred to as master classes in the art of memoir but she got her start in poetry: her roots are evident in the way she chooses each word with great care.

A Great Reckoning (Chief Inspector Gamache Novel)

Author:
The good news: I LOVED this Louise Penny's Three Pines novel, on sale for the first time in years. The bad news: you'll enjoy this series more if you read them in order. I don't want to give even hints of spoilers to those of you not this far along in the series, so I'll just say that Penny returned to the big-picture plot in this latest mystery in a big way. Start at the beginning and see why she's an author worth binge reading. More info →

Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha)

Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha)

Author:
Empire Of Sand is a captivating fantasy novel with its Mughal-inspired world-building. Viewed as an outsider because of her Amrithi mother, Mehr chafes against her stepmother's restrictions and the expectation to marry. And yet, marry she must for Mehr has come to the attention of the Emperor's mystics and The Maha has declared she must marry Amun. Neither she nor Amun can decline and thus their relationship begins on rocky ground. But just because they have to obey doesn't mean they obey mindlessly. There is such rich symbolism and imagery throughout, largely due to the Amrithi's powerful rites where they dance. As Mehr learns more of the rites and the stories behind them, she recovers a piece of herself and her history and becomes a force to reckon with in the process. The way Mehr and Amun's relationship evolves is worth a closer look, as is the way they band together to face down The Maha. More info →

The Ex Talk

The Ex Talk

How could this podcaster resist a novel about podcasting, set in the world of public radio? In this enemies-to-lovers romance, Solomon takes the familiar fake dating trope and gives it a fun twist: in order to advance their respective careers, Shay and Dominic say “yes” to their boss’s not-quite- legit plan to co-host a tell-all podcast, where they’ll pretend to be exes and deconstruct what went wrong in their relationship. But to convince their listeners it’s real, they need to get to know each other—and that’s when it gets complicated. I loved the Seattle studio setting and sense of humor in this breezy read. Heads up for an open door scene or two. More info →

Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work or Watch or Weep

Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work or Watch or Weep

From the publisher: "Framed around a nighttime prayer of Compline, Tish Harrison Warren, author of Liturgy of the Ordinary, explores themes of human vulnerability, suffering, and God's seeming absence. When she navigated a time of doubt and loss, the prayer was grounding for her. She writes that practices of prayer 'gave words to my anxiety and grief and allowed me to reencounter the doctrines of the church not as tidy little antidotes for pain, but as a light in darkness, as good news.' Where do we find comfort when we lie awake worrying or weeping in the night? This book offers a prayerful and frank approach to the difficulties in our ordinary lives at work, at home, and in a world filled with uncertainty." More info →

I Take My Coffee Black: Reflections on Tupac, Musical Theater, Faith, and Being Black in America

I Take My Coffee Black: Reflections on Tupac, Musical Theater, Faith, and Being Black in America

Author:
I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir from the actor, comedian, and The Tyler Merritt project founder, who shares about his life and work here with a broad lens. He begins by describing what it was like to grow up in Las Vegas under the watchful eye of a strong Black mother, how a friend played him songs from Miss Saigon and just like that, he was a theater kid, how he came to embrace the Christian faith, and what it's like to live in the United States, right now, as a tall, dreadlocked Black man. I enjoyed how Merritt weaves together memoir, comedy, social commentary, and more into one unified and propulsive whole; reading this felt like sitting down with a friend who's way cooler than you and listening to them share their stories.

Everything Sad Is Untrue: (a true story)

Author:
The praise from critics on this one is effusive: NPR cautions, "it hooks you right from the opening line," Kirkus Reviews calls it "a modern epic," and BookPage says, "This book could change the world." From the publisher: "A sprawling, evocative, and groundbreaking autobiographical novel told in the unforgettable and hilarious voice of a young Iranian refugee. 'A patchwork story is the shame of the refugee,' Nayeri writes early in the novel. In an Oklahoman middle school, Khosrou (whom everyone calls Daniel) stands in front of a skeptical audience of classmates, telling the tales of his family's history, stretching back years, decades, and centuries. Nayeri deftly weaves through stories of the long and beautiful history of his family in Iran, adding a richness of ancient tales and Persian folklore." More info →

The People We Keep

The People We Keep

Author:
This is an amazing value on Chirp this month. Chirp offers digital audiobooks that can be listened to on their site or in an app. The ebook is not on sale. From the publisher: "Little River, New York, 1994: April Sawicki is living in a motorless motorhome that her father won in a poker game. Failing out of school, picking up shifts at a local diner, she’s left fending for herself in a town where she’s never quite felt at home. When she “borrows” her neighbor’s car to perform at an open mic night, she realizes her life could be much bigger than where she came from. After a fight with her dad, April packs her stuff and leaves for good, setting off on a journey to find a life that’s all hers. Driving without a chosen destination, she stops to rest in Ithaca. Her only plan is to survive, but as she looks for work, she finds a kindred sense of belonging at Cafe Decadence, the local coffee shop. Still, somehow, it doesn’t make sense to her that life could be this easy. The more she falls in love with her friends in Ithaca, the more she can’t shake the feeling that she’ll hurt them the way she’s been hurt. As April moves through the world, meeting people who feel like home, she chronicles her life in the songs she writes and discovers that where she came from doesn’t dictate who she has to be."

They lose patients to this baffling pandemic, but they also shepherd new life into a fearful world. With tireless tenderness and humanity, carers and mothers alike somehow do their impossible work."
