Good Reads

Here’s a sampling of what I’ve been reading recently.

My book group – I’ve been a member of one book group or another for more than 20 years. My current group of nine women has been meeting for over four years, reading mostly current fiction. Our few forays into “classics” (Kerouac, On the Road, Steinbeck, Cannery Row) have not been my favorite reads. Here are a few books that I recommend for your reading pleasure:

Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
Leif Enger, Peace Like a River
Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants
Alice Hoffman, Blackbird House
Margo Livesey, Eva Moves the Furniture
Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Roland Merullo, Revere Beach Trilogy (In Revere, In Those Days, Revere Beach Boulevard)
Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried
Lisa See, Snowflower and the Secret Fan
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain
