All Stories Are Love Stories

This is very much the kind of book that I fully admit is a worthy read and a wonderful read for the right audience.


Girl in the Blue Coat

Girl in the Blue Coat is fiction, but is obviously influenced by real stories and very real rebellions.


Rush Oh!

Rush Oh! is an engaging, fun, sweet, funny novel about life and love, family and work.


The Road to Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American in Britain

If you like books that fill you with a sense of warm recognition of our common humanity, our common intolerance for officially sanctioned idiocy, and our common appreciation for kind-heartedness and generosity of spirit, this book is for you.


The Name of God Is Mercy: A Conversation with Andrea Tornielli

Some of his remarks have a cutting edge rarely to be found in this sort of bland discourse.


How English Became English: A short history of a global language

Inside this svelte tract are several larger and more polemical volumes struggling to get out. But we all need to start somewhere.


Life Reimagined: The Science, Art, and Opportunity of Midlife

To our great delight and benefit, Bradley Hagerty takes us along for the ride.


The Abundance

To read Annie Dillard’s latest collection of essays is to be a student of language and a student of the world — to look at everything, even the tiniest moments, with perpetual wonder.


Jesus Before the Gospels

Jesus Before the Gospels has much to commend it.


Dead Presidents: An American Adventure into the Strange Deaths and Surprising Afterlives of Our Nation's Leaders

Funny and thoughtful, Dead Presidents is like a road trip with a witty friend — the kind who tells stories that you want to pass along.


The Oxford Inheritance

Ultimately, this book is not unnecessarily complex; it’s the story of a strong, determined young woman forcing the world to acknowledge her place in it by any means necessary. And who could argue with that?


I'm Glad About You

Overall, I’m Glad About You is a great read not for the love story and its will-they-or-won’t-they tension, but because of its sharp eye.


The Red Parts

This is the beauty of this sparse book. Although it can be classified as true crime, The Red Parts has none of the trappings of a whodunit. It doesn’t look for answers, it just looks unflinchingly at the wreckage, the loss, the love and the fear. It bears witness.


Something Will Happen, You'll See: A Tale of Polygamy

These haunting narratives and their conversational titles have the poignancy to sink into a reader’s memory and life.


Ways to Disappear

This movement across tones and genres—farce, comedy, mystery, romance—offers plenty of surprises. You can disappear for hours in Novey’s original story.


Multiple Listings

The plot of Multiple Listings feels like so many enthusiastic real-estate descriptions: too good to be true.


In the Café of Lost Youth

In just barely over 100 pages, and with only a faintly perceptible narrative line, Modiano captures the experience of struggling to remember, but always indirectly.


Kill 'Em and Leave: Searching for James Brown and the American Soul

Kill ’Em features some of his best and most beautiful passages.


The Dig

The Dig is a comfortable, calming sort of book with the additional merit of a truly intriguing subject.


Asking For It

Asking for It is a good book and a sad book. You won’t come away from it feeling happy, but you will come away from it feeling angry and anger is a healthier emotion than despair.
