I’m looking for a new book to read to fit into my summer reading challenge and I think an Anna Quindlen book would be just right for several of the categories:
- Read an award-winning book…
- Read a memoir, biography or autobiography…
- Read a book suggested by a friend…
See what I mean?
Anna Quindlen is an award-winning novelist and journalist. Here’s her bio from annaquindlen.net:
ANNA QUINDLEN is a novelist and journalist whose work has appeared on fiction, nonfiction, and self-help bestseller lists. She is the author of eight novels: Object Lessons, One True Thing, Black and Blue, Blessings, Rise and Shine, Every Last One, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, and Miller’s Valley. Her memoir Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, published in 2012, was a number one New York Times bestseller. Her book A Short Guide to a Happy Life has sold more than a million copies. While a columnist at The New York Times she won the Pulitzer Prize and published two collections, Living Out Loud and Thinking Out Loud. Her Newsweek columns were collected in Loud and Clear.

I’ve always liked her.
Her writing reaches a lot of people. Looking forward to picking up another of her books. Thanks for stopping by, Chatter Master!
I love all of her books that I’ve read…and when studying her list, I see that there are a few of her older ones I’ve missed. Must check them out!
I did love One True Thing, Black & Blue, Still Life & Bread Crumbs, and Every Last One. Each one was so good that it would be hard to pick a favorite.
Hi, yes I think I will try One True Thing because I’ve heard so many positive things about it. Thanks for checking in and commenting. Have a great day!
