All This Could Be Yours

Jami Attenberg’s latest novel, All This Could Be Yours, is a wonderfully crafted tale of family dysfunction that makes you laugh out loud on one page, cringe with familiarity on the next and sigh with compassion as each family member’s secrets are revealed.

When My Time Comes

In When My time Comes, Diane Rehm confronts one of the hardest questions our aging population faces : Whether those who are dying should have the right to determine when life should end. In her customary thoughtful and inquisitive manner, Rehm offers conversations with the dying, their loved ones, and with those who agree and those who disagree about the right to determine the time of ones own death when life loses viability and becomes all about suffering.

How Beautiful We Were

There are times this book is so humorous that I was laughing out loud at a character's words or actions, and there were times that I had to put the book down for a moment to reflect on its sadness. In my opinion, that makes a perfect book. It fuels your emotional spectrum and makes you, feel.

Burnham’s vision is clear and richly crafted, an inviting, intriguing narrative that transported me--as only a skilled novelist can do--from a grey New England day to the tastes, music, and landscape of a lush, faraway world. A quick, but richly layered read!

For me, this story was exciting and full of carefully described scenes. I felt like I was there... or I wished I had been!
