Here with @Larry @gabimoskowitz @evan @jgmosko and his girlfriend jen all arrive today, so my reading might slow down, but I've been tearing it up so far
  1. Dietland by Sarai Walker
    Feminist and subversive and hilarious!
  2. My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
    The first in the Neapolitan Novels--how women survive in a misogynistic old society and how women's roles changed. Compulsively readable.
  3. Let Me Be Frank With You by Richard Ford
    Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, deservedly so--a meditation on aging and relationships
  4. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
    Nazis the French Resistance. Great reviews. I found it tedious and boring.
  5. Self Help by Lorrie Moore
    An oldie but a goodie. Beautifully written stories of women struggling to keep from unravelling in one way or another.
  6. I probably have time for one or two more before I go back to work next week. Suggestions???
  7. Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf. Short and beautiful story about an older couple.
    Suggested by @BillNovak
  8. Tumbledown by Robert Boswell. Highly recommended. Based around a mental health and retraining institution. Told from perspective of various characters with a wide range of IQ and emotional intelligence. Especially would like to hear a therapist's take on it.
