Ballad of the Whiskey Robber

Ballad of the Whiskey Robber

As I told readers of the original Summer Reading Guide, I would never have picked this book—first published in 2004—off the shelf: I just couldn't get past the awful cover. But a friend with great taste recommended it, and I gave it a try out of loyalty to her, and I've been recommending it ever since. This nonfiction narrative about a Hungarian gentleman thief reads like a novel, but this true story is stranger than fiction. More info →

Myself When Young

Myself When Young

Author of novels such as Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, and short stories like The Birds, Daphne du Maurier is a writer "as richly evocative as any of her novels" (Los Angeles Times)" From the publisher: "Based on diaries she kept between 1920 and 1932, du Maurier probes her own past, beginning with her earliest memories and encompassing the publication of her first book and her marriage. Often painfully honest, she recounts her difficult relationship with her father, her education in Paris, her early love affairs, her antipathy towards London life, and her desperate ambition to succeed as a writer. The resulting self-portrait is of a complex, utterly captivating young woman." More info →

Author:
From the publisher: "In Hercule Poirot's Christmas, the holidays are anything but merry when a family reunion is marred by murder—and the notoriously fastidious investigator is quickly on the case. Christmas Eve, and the Lee family’s reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture and a high-pitched wailing scream. When Hercule Poirot offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man." More info →

The Eternal Current: How a Practice-Based Faith Can Save Us from Drowning

The Eternal Current: How a Practice-Based Faith Can Save Us from Drowning

Author:
If you recognize the name Niequist, Aaron is the husband of Shauna Niequist. From the publisher: "When a myriad of tense conversations about ideological differences in the Church left him feeling spiritually empty, Niequist determined God must have a different vision for worship and community. In his search, Aaron discovered that there was historical Christian precedent for enacting faith in a different way, an ancient and now future way of believing. He calls this third way 'practice-based faith'. This book is about loving one's faith tradition and, at the same time, following the call to something deeper and richer. A call for Christians to move past doctrinal tensions and denominational disagreements and into a deeper, more vibrant, beatitude-like faith rooted in sacred practices and intimate experiences with God."

The ebook is not on sale. Critics are calling this an 'eerie masterpiece" and "a masterful exploration of the dark side of social media."

Her life is paid for by the retailers and pharmaceutical companies that sponsor the show, and in effect sponsor Marlow's life.

Her Last Flight

Her Last Flight

I'm a fan of Beatriz Williams. And Elin Hilderbrand says she thinks Williams is writing "the best historical fiction out there. It's lush with period detail but feels immediate." High praise. From the publisher: "In 1947, photographer and war correspondent Janey Everett arrives at a remote surfing village on the Hawaiian island of Kauai to research a planned biography of forgotten aviation pioneer Sam Mallory, who joined the loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War and never returned. Obsessed with Sam's fate, Janey has tracked down Irene Lindquist, the owner of a local island-hopping airline, whom she believes might actually be the legendary Irene Foster, Mallory’s onetime student and flying partner. Foster’s disappearance during a round-the-world flight in 1937 remains one of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries. At first, the flinty Mrs. Lindquist denies any connection to Foster. But Janey informs her that the wreck of Sam Mallory’s airplane has recently been discovered in a Spanish desert, and piece by piece, the details of Foster’s extraordinary life emerge." More info →

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."

Cinder

Author:
Cinder hasn't been on sale in forever. A Summer Reading Guide pick. Each book in the YA fantasy series The Lunar Chronicles puts a new spin on an old fairy tale. In this first installment, Cinderella becomes a kickass mechanic, despised by her mother and stepsisters because she’s a cyborg. Admittedly, it sounds cheesy, but it works. Though it's clear where the story is headed, spotting the imaginative ways Meyer reinvents the old fairy tale keeps the reader turning the pages. Fresh, fun, surprising, and compulsively readable.

It's the perfect blend of the very real emotional family, and the bizarre which lets the author address serious things—life, work, power, ambition, relationships—without getting precious about it.

Lilith’s Brood: The Complete Xenogenesis Trilogy

Lilith’s Brood: The Complete Xenogenesis Trilogy

I talked about author Octavia Butler on a recent episode of One Great Book. This is her science fiction Xenogenesis series. Science fiction might be the eeriest genre of all. Think of The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror (neither of which you'll catch me watching before bed). In this genre, otherworldly elements often highlight real human themes, and Octavia Butler is a master of the craft. From the publisher: "The complete series about an alien species that could save humanity after nuclear apocalypse—or destroy it—from 'one of science fiction’s finest writers' (The New York Times). Lilith's Brood is both a thrilling, epic adventure of man's struggle to survive after Earth's destruction, and a provocative meditation on what it means to be human." More info →

In 1985, Yale Tishman loves his job working in the fundraising department of a Chicago art gallery. But as his career takes off, the 1980s AIDS crisis wreaks havoc on his world, devastating his chosen family. Between chapters about Yale's life, we learn his friend Fiona's story, as she travels to Paris 30 years later in search of her estranged daughter. Both timelines kept me glued to the page, and they came together in such a brilliant way at the end of the book. Amy Poehler optioned this one for a "major television event."

100 Years of the Best American Short Stories (The Best American Series)

From the publisher: "Witness the ever-changing history and identity of America in this collection of 40 stories collected from the first 100 years of this bestselling series. Together, the stories and commentary offer an extraordinary guided tour through a century of literature... These forty stories represent their eras but also stand the test of time. Here is Ernest Hemingway’s first published story and a classic by William Faulkner, who admitted in his biographical note that he began to write 'as an aid to love-making.' Nancy Hale’s story describes far-reaching echoes of the Holocaust; Tillie Olsen's story expresses the desperation of a single mother; James Baldwin depicts the bonds of brotherhood and music. Here is Raymond Carver's 'minimalism,' a term he disliked, and Grace Paley's 'secular Yiddishkeit.' Here are the varied styles of Donald Barthelme, Charles Baxter, and Jamaica Kincaid. From Junot Díaz to Mary Gaitskill, from ZZ Packer to Sherman Alexie, these writers and stories explore the different things it means to be American." More info →
