Adding this #Nonfiction #medical book to my #TBR stack. I'm excited to read Mukherjee's follow up to his wildly successful #EmperorofAllMaladies.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Truly worth the #PulitzerPrize.
An absolute thrill to read. Mukherjee does an excellent job of taking such a complex and technical subject and bring it to a level that the average reader can understand.
This book is perfect if you're trying to get a better understanding of what cancer is and why we haven't discovered a cure yet.

The Fixer: A Novel | Bernard Malamud

“There‘s something cursed, it seems to me, about a country where men have owned other men as property. The stink of that corruption never escapes the soul, and it is the stink of future evil.” 😞

The setting of this novel is Kiev, 1911 but the story is relevant today. #nationalbookaward #pulitzerprize

The Stone Diaries | Carol Shields

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I liked that this novel the follows the life of 1 character, Daisy Goodwill, through her birth, childhood, marriage, widowhood, decline, and death. But the last 2-2.5 chapters didn‘t feel in keeping with her character through the earlier parts of the book. I can, though, see how it won prizes. It feels different, with the “plot” being a fictional life.

Lcsmcat This was the first Shields I read, and it sold me on her. I‘m reading one of hers right now: 10mo
AudreyMorris @Lcsmcat I read Unless earlier this year, and preferred that one. Though they are quite different—other than the writing style. Both felt slow to me, or maybe calm is a better word? 10mo
AudreyMorris It took me a while, both times, to settle in to the pace. And then I enjoyed it. It didn‘t surprise me the second time. 10mo
Lcsmcat @AudreyMorris I liked Unless too. Also A Celibate Season, which she co-wrote with Blanche Howard, is amazing! 10mo

“Southern women like their generals religious and a little mad.” #Quotsy

General Longstreet is alluding to Stonewall Jackson. It made me smile. 😊

So many larger than life historical figures in this book. This is a well written book @britt_brooke .. the reader is excellent!
