Although I’m busy with my Summer Reading Challenge, here are a few books on my wish list:
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
D’Aprix’s debut novel about four adult children’s dysfunctional family and their joint trust fund.
The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
Benjamin’s new novel about New York’s socialite Swans of the 1950s: Slim Keith, C. Z. Guest, Gloria Guinness, and Pamela Churchill. Everything changes when Truman Capote enters the scene.
The Widow by Fiona Barton
Here’s another debut novel: a story about being the perfect wife to a man accused of a heartless crime.
My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout
One of my favorite writers! Mother and daughter come together after many years as they confront the tension in their imperfect family.
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
Paul Kalanithi, age thirty-six, was just completing his training as a neurosurgeon when he was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. In his book he asks, “What makes life worth living in the face of death?”
