Cover ArtThe goldfinch
by Donna Tartt
One of the best novels I’ve ever read. Stunning writing. I’m so happy it won the Pulitzer Prize. If it takes Tartt another decade to write her next novel, so be it. It’s worth the wait.   posted Aug 25, 2014 at 11:41AM

Cover ArtAn unreal dream : the Michael Morton story
Excellent documentary about Michael Morton who was wrongly imprisoned for the brutal murder of his wife. Twenty-five years later the truth comes out (both DNA proof someone else committed the crime, and the suppressed evidence by the prosecuting attorney that would have exonerated Michael). A disturbing look at our legal system.   posted Jun 30, 2014 at 4:03PM

Cover ArtThe snow child : a novel
by Eowyn Ivey
A magical, unusual read. I loved every minute of this beautiful novel set in the Alaskan wilderness.   posted Jun 30, 2014 at 11:38AM

Cover ArtCan’t we talk about something more pleasant?
by Roz Chast
Only child Roz Chast has written an excellent graphic memoir about dealing with her aging parents who had reached their nineties. Her mother is a real handful and her father is so sweet. You will laugh and cry as you read this raw, often hilarious book.   posted Jun 6, 2014 at 10:09AM

Cover ArtThe silent wife : a novel
by A. S. A. Harrison
The Silent Wife reminded me so much of Gone, Girl but I enjoyed The Silent Wife more.   posted Jun 2, 2014 at 9:14AM
