“ A number of these were stalking the grounds of Cassowary House, eating cut-up bananas and gobbling up any pies unwisely left on windowsills to cool.”

“She later said that she had to leave the kitchen when I was making my first pie crust, the sight was so painful to her.“

I admire what Ramirez attempted here and am giving it a Pick over a So-so for this aim to give humanity to science history. But I was never transported and inspired; I had too high hopes, perhaps. Yet, she has a great #PieinLit mention and she drops in Perkins mauve color (NF book by Simon Garfield) so there's that. 👇

BkClubCare Esther is not allowed in this chair. LOL 5mo
rubyslippersreads @BkClubCare Right, and my cats aren‘t allowed on the kitchen counter, either. 😹 5mo

A lot to admire and appreciate — depth sadness and humor. A pick for sure and yet, conflicting. I think it is part of the point. Not meant to be academic or “impressive” but a recognition of how hard it is to human, flawed. Flawed, good and struggling to be good, struggling to make good. #tob2022 #tob2022longlist #natlbookaward #pieinlit #libraryhardcover #duetomorrow

Ruthiella Great photo! 🤩 8mo
BkClubCare @Ruthiella - aw thanks. I was about to walk right into that tree and was struck how beautiful it was. And thought it would add a pretty fall-feel frame to an Esther pic. 😊 8mo

Golden State | Ben Winters
post image

Golden State features an odd couple team sent to investigate what starts as a routine accidental death & soon becomes much more. As the Washington Post review noted of Laszlo's detecting skills, “The novel‘s narrator Laszlo Ratesic, is a member of the state‘s Speculative Service, the law-enforcement body charged with ferreting out lies and liars and with sorting “accidental infelicities” from “purposeful misrepresentations.” Like other members👇

vivastory of the service, Laszlo has a sixth sense for mendacity. It produces a physical reaction in him, like an allergy.“ For some reason I recall Laszlo having a fondness for pie, I don't recall if this included #pumpkin pie. This is the 6th Winters book that I have read & although not my favorite of his it was well worth reading. #GratefulHarvest @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @eggs (edited) 9mo
Suet624 I read this for the TOB. I remember really liking it until the end. It kind of went off the rails. 9mo
BkClubCare Yes!! #PieinLit. My notes mention Blueberry Pie at the House of Pie 😄 9mo

vivastory @Suet624 I agree about the end 9mo
vivastory @BkClubCare Thanks for the reminder! I knew there was something distinct about the scene where he eats pie, just couldn't remember what 9mo
BarbaraBB I really really likes this one. 9mo
Megabooks I almost ordered this from BOTM half a dozen times. Perhaps I should have. 🤔 9mo
vivastory @Megabooks I would start with his Last Policeman trilogy first, if you haven't read them. 9mo

“but now a new, painful, contradictory voice had grown up within me, and between its demands for revengeful action and Mary‘s silent pressure I thrived with guilt and puzzlement. I wanted peace and quiet, tranquility, but was too much a boil inside.”
