By Wendy Walker
This mystery novel was my September Book of the Month Club selection.
By Claire Dederer
This book of personal essays explores Dederer’s midlife sexual reawakening that traces its roots back to her teenage promiscuity. It’s been noted for its honest portrayal of sexuality and its innovative takes on the creative nonfiction form.
By Tana French
Spoiler alert: I just finished this book. It’s a little tedious but worth a read since Tana French is one of the best crime writers working these days. Plus, it’s got an unsuspecting twist at the end. Her debut “Into the Woods” is still my favorite though.
By Balli Kaur Jaswal
Yes, there are some erotic stories in here, but it’s not what you think! This is a funny, heartwarming tale of British Punjabi women’s reconciliation with their patriarchal community and modern country.
By Nathan Hill
This book topped a lot of “Best of” lists last year, and I’ve heard both positive and negative reviews.
More like “what the $&#@ happened.” I’m looking forward to reading what Hillary’s official take on all this is, beyond the easy headlines.
May the library be your regular haunt this October! Mu-hu-ha-ha.
