Our February Book Club pick! There is good reason that Trevor Noah's book is on the Best Seller list. His work is autobiographical, eye opening and filled with humor and wonderful personal antidotes. His writing captures an Africa that I thought I knew but really didn't know anything about. As in many instances, there are struggles within struggles and I admire the strength that his mother had and what she passed on to him all in the name of love. The audio is supposed to be wonderful too because he has such a beautiful voice!
This book is for anyone that loves New York City and admires a strong, intelligent creative woman! Imagine being the highest paid female advertising exectutive back in the day! I loved the way Lillian takes a walk throught the city and recalls her life as she takes in all that she loves of the city at the same moment. This is charming and has wonderful characters!
Wow! This fictional but at the same time very personal account of raising a trans-gender child is so eye opening! It truly brings up all aspects of what parents and the child go through - through every age and all the thought provoking decisions that have to be made along the way to let a child be who they truly are and be happy.
All I can say is that three of us on staff have picked this book for our staff pick choice! What better recommendation is that!
I loved this book!! Loved! The squirrel on the cover had always caught my attention and I am so glad I finally picked it up! Yes, the squirrel does have an important part but more important is this couples' relationship and what they have to decide before they get married. There is a lot of soul searching, quirky families, dealing with past and future anxieties, and job upheavel but at the same time there is so much humor and love that you find yourself hoping for the best. You will just have to read it to see if that happens!
Once again I am drawn to a memoir that takes place in the outer boroughs of NYC. I can't help myself! Tara Clancy has written a memoir that will make you smile, laugh out loud and shake your head in disbelief! She survives it all with a big family and a lot of love!
I think I have said this before but these Ferrante books are incredibly addictive! Translated from the Italian, they are so well written and contintue a friendship through the passage of time. With each book you learn a little more of their lives and the time period and their struggles and hopes. Worth the commitment!
