Interpreter of Maladies

Interpreter of Maladies

Author:
I love Lahiri. This slim volume of short stories was breathtaking. Lahiri's characters tenuously navigate the divide between their old world and their new, and taken together, the collection highlights myriad aspects of the immigrant experience. Lahiri's gift is to turn ordinary experiences into moments fraught with meaning, and she does it over and over in this Pulitzer-winning collection. (I loved this on audio.) More info →

The Joy Luck Club

The Joy Luck Club

Author:
Tan's debut novel draws heavily from her own life and relationship with her mother. Told in shifting perspectives, we get stories from four mothers and four daughters, all navigating life in America as Chinese immigrants or the children of immigrants. The stories are tender, hopeful, and sometimes painful. Tan weaves intense Chinese history in between tales of modern, everyday concerns, and the effect is stunning. There's so much to talk about here: how our pasts influence future generations, how storytelling serves as a way to connect with each other, and how unspoken secrets and sentiments somehow manage to escape.

The Luminaries

The Luminaries

Author:
New York Magazine calls this "A very clever, absurdly fun novel that reads like a cross between a locked-room mystery, a spaghetti Western, a game of Sodoku, and Edwin Drood." This bestselling Man Booker Prize-winning novel is set in New Zealand during the gold rush of 1866. At 848 pages, this novel is an investment, but those who are up for the challenge are rewarded with a large cast of well-drawn characters, a sophisticated structure, and a well-developed and ultimately rewarding mystery. This is a fabulous ebook read, just because it's so long, but readers with great taste love this one. More info →

Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her

Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her

Author:
From the publisher: "A plucky 'titian-haired' sleuth solved her first mystery in 1930. As beloved by girls today as she was by their grandmothers, Nancy Drew has both inspired and reflected the changes in her readers' lives. Here, in a narrative with all the vivid energy and page-turning pace of Nancy's adventures, Melanie Rehak solves an enduring literary mystery: Who created Nancy Drew? And how did she go from pulp heroine to icon? Nancy was brought to life by two women: Mildred Wirt Benson, a pioneering journalist from Iowa, and Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, a well-bred wife and mother who took over as CEO after her father died. In this century-spanning story, Rehak traces their roles—and Nancy's—in forging the modern American woman." More info →

The ebook is not on sale. From the publisher: "From best-selling author Jon Krakauer, a stark, powerful, meticulously reported narrative. Missoula, Montana, is a typical college town, with a highly regarded state university, bucolic surroundings, a lively social scene, and an excellent football team - the Grizzlies - with a rabid fan base. The Department of Justice investigated 350 sexual assaults reported to the Missoula police between January 2008 and May 2012. In this Missoula is also typical. Krakauer's devastating narrative of what happened in Missoula makes clear why rape is so prevalent on American campuses and why victims are so reluctant to report assault." More info →

The Crosswicks Journals: A Circle of Quiet, The Summer of the Great-Grandmother, The Irrational Season, and Two-Part Invention

The Crosswicks Journals: A Circle of Quiet, The Summer of the Great-Grandmother, The Irrational Season, and Two-Part Invention

I love the first installment, A Circle of Quiet, so much that I read it three times. I've adopted Madeleine L’Engle as an honorary mentor. Anyone who can coin a phrase like "the tired thirties" and admit that her kids told her to sit down at the typewriter and write when she got cranky is worth listening to. I suspect our brains work the same way (except for the part where hers cranks out gorgeous fiction and mine is terrified of the genre). More info →

Convenience Store Woman

Convenience Store Woman

Author:
This quirky little book from the 2018 Summer Reading Guide is unlike anything I've ever read. Keiko was an uncommon child with worried parents until she takes on a job in a convenience store. They relax that she's found a pleasant and predictable routine while at university. But eighteen years later, she is still working her low-level job, and doesn't understand why society expects more from her than that. In fact, she doesn't seem to understand society's expectations—or how to conform to them—at all. Hot tip: critics are comparing Keiko to French heroine Amélie, although the two live different lives in different worlds. Originally written in Japanese and translated by Ginny Tapley Takemori.

Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis

Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis

Author:
I love the backstory on this: when a friend asked Patti Henry what she would write about if she could write about anything: the answer came at once: Joy Davidman. You may know the outlines of this story from Shadowlands: In her new biographical novel, Henry tells the story of poet Joy Davidman, and how she became the wife of C.S. Lewis. Henry has said she was fascinated by how Davidman, a fascinating woman in her own right, completely transformed her life at a time when it was incredibly difficult for a woman to do such a thing. Henry portrays how a robust correspondence turned into friendship, and then something more. While I thought I was familiar with the story, I learned something new on every page. More info →

The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick

Author:
Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. They're my go-to for audiobooks these days; read more about Libro.fm here. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is not on sale. As an avid fan of monster movies, Mallory O'Meara was thrilled to discover that a woman designed the monster from one of her favorite films, The Creature from the Black Lagoon. But as O'Meara soon discovered, Millicent Patrick's design accomplishments were hidden from history, due to jealous male colleagues and pervasive sexism in the film industry. Following along with O'Meara's research process is just as delightful as learning all about Millicent. I got to chat with Mallory on Episode 176 of What Should I Read Next, and despite my total avoidance of the horror genre, we found some readerly common ground! I am pleased to report that Mallory's book is not-too-scary, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. More info →

Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis

Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis

Author:
I feel like I’m a bit young to be reading about women having midlife crises, but I took a chance on it, primarily because I trusted my friend who recommended it, who happens to be several years younger than me. I found this book completely fascinating and far too relatable. In separate chapters, Calhoun examines many of these issues individually, like finding work, caregiving, job instability, money panic, choosing a single life, or a childless life, or not choosing to be single and childless yet finding that's your reality, and then divorce, perimenopause, the comparison trap—if you're getting the picture, you can see it's not easy stuff. It was a lot of information, and a lot of it was pretty depressing, but it was also engrossing, and unexpectedly reassuring. I laughed the laugh of recognition when Calhoun writes, "Oddly, knowing that I have every reason in the world to be freaking out has made me much more relaxed." More info →

Writers & Lovers

Author:
I'd been eagerly awaiting the follow-up to King’s award-winning 2014 novel Euphoria. This much-anticipated novel follows Casey Peabody, who is mourning the sudden death of her mother plus a messy break-up in 1997 Massachusetts. Lost without direction, 31-year-old Casey waits tables to make ends meet while she works on her novel in a tiny, dingy rented room. While her friends have given up on their artistic ambitions in favor of stability and the next phase of life, Casey still harbors creative dreams and firmly grasps her youth. When she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, it becomes all the more difficult to balance her art with "real life," and she just might reach her breaking point. It has one of the most satisfying endings I've read in ages. More info →

The Echo Wife

The Echo Wife

Author:
This past year I picked up Sarah Gailey’s works for the first time, and have been so impressed at the range of their talents: westerns and magic and sci-fi, oh my! Their next book opens with a black tie gala: renowned researcher Evelyn Caldwell has to face her cheating ex-husband at the awards dinner meant to honor her, but soon discovers that’s the least of her problems. If her colleagues find out he unethically used Evelyn’s research to clone himself a more agreeable version of herself, her career is over... and that desire to cover up the truth leads Evelyn into more and more trouble, as she scrambles to cover-up a crime while questioning her right to “play God” in her work. The intimate first-person narration amps up the tension—and the enjoyment. A fun, thoughtful, and satisfying genre mash-up. More info →

Girl, Woman, Other

Ashley Parrish didn't realize how much she loved books set in the theater and the arts until she shared this favorite Man Booker Prize winner on WSIRN Episode 274: #Bookstagram made me do it. Told in twelve interconnected stories of Black, British, and LGBTQ+ characters, this propulsive read features a host of fascinating characters, plus a unique structure and style with no punctuation or capitalization. (I found this jarring at first, but quickly adjusted.) Evaristo's mixture of poetry and prose makes for a page-turner; I couldn't wait to see how these characters' lives would converge in this vibrant novel. More info →
