Book Recommendations

flinchingly Many friends and family members ask me what I’m reading, so I’m going to post book
recommendations every month (non-clients!). More than ever, we need the calm respite which books provide. Buy them on,, or your local retailer, all of which helps the authors, artists and local booksellers.

Picture book: SLOW LORIS by Alexis Deacon. The moody illustrations really depict the languorous life of a slow loris.

Middle grade: SLIDER by Pete Hautman. My son and I cracked up at this zany, but very real story.

Young adult: THE ILLUSTRATED MAN by Ray Bradbury. The sheer breadth of imagination in these stories is astounding.

Adult Fiction: HOLLOW KINGDOM by Kira Jane Buxton. Timely and funny, it looks at a world devoid of humans and finds the humanity.

Adult NF: MY BROTHER by Jamaica Kincaid. A raw memoir of the author’s brother who died of AIDS.
