How has it taken me so long to read this book? It's so creepy and weird and compelling and engrossing. It's truly a novel of another time and place. Now I have to go watch the movie again. Read it! It's amazing!

Blaire Agree. I‘m reading talented mr ripley now. So good. 2mo

Fleishman Is in Trouble: A Novel | Taffy Brodesser-Akner

I loved this book. I thought it was smart and totally absorbing in the way that, say, Meg Wolitzer is.

Italo Calvino, where have you been all my life? Imagine, in the few days since I turned 50, I have discovered both granita di caffe con panna AND this amazing novel. How is that possible? What other pleasures await me in my fifties? I‘d better stay in Italy for a few more years to find out.

The Little Stranger | Sarah Waters

Another amazing Sarah Waters novel. I'm trying not to inhale them all at once, but I can't seem to help myself. If you love creepy old English estates that are quite possibly haunted, love gone wrong, and ordinary people driven to madness, then you will love this book.

Has anyone seen the movie????

Clock Dance | Anne Tyler
post image

Anne Tyler has one story to tell, and she tells it over and over. It's a story about women who find themselves adrift, slightly out of step, disconnected from their families in ways that puzzle them but that they can't fix, until one day....

And that's this book. I loved it absolutely as much as I've loved every Anne Tyler novel. What else is there to say? Read it!

Hey, would you like to read a novel written from the point of view of Peggy Guggenheim‘s teenage daughter, set in the Mexican jungle during World War II and populated by lightly fictionalized version is of the artists who escaped the war with her? It‘s so crazy good! Watch for it in July from @Tin_House! Also, I want to wallpaper a room with this cover.

Affinity | Sarah Waters
post image

Another extraordinary novel from Sarah Waters. I can't believe I'm only just now discovering these books. I'm amazed by her range and her ability to conjure another era in such an all-absorbing, spellbinding way. This one is an absolutely perfect Gothic mystery/tragedy/ghost story, set in a Victorian-era women's prison. If you read Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca and felt like you'd never read anything as good again--THIS!!!!

JamieArc I‘m nearing the end of Fingersmith, also my first Sarah Waters, and am reading wide-eyed with the unraveling of the story - it‘s so good! 6mo

The Paying Guests | Sarah Waters

$1.99 ebook today!
Hey, if you love the idea of deeply convincing historical fiction about the lives of ordinary British women just after WWI, which veers slowly into a gorgeous lesbian romance, and (I haven‘t reached this part yet, but according to the reviews) then transforms into a murder mystery—well, you will adore this magnificent novel as much as I do. I‘m only halfway through, so don‘t tell me how it ends!

Stranger Diaries | Elly Griffiths

You know those books you love so much that throughout the day you think, "I can't wait to crawl back in bed and read that book some more"--well, this is one of those books. It's a creepy British murder mystery with Victorian gothic literature as its reference point, a spooky attic and even spookier abandoned factory--really, it's just exactly the book you want to be reading in front of the fire on a dark and stormy night. Go do that right now!

I adored this book! I generally don‘t like novels that weave between a historical story and a modern day researcher/historian trying to figure her own life out as informed by this other past life (how is this a genre, much less one I know well enough to have an opinion about) but actually this is a memoir and a lovely depiction of a real person grappling with a subject she‘s trying to write about and understand—and I do relate to that! Lovely book

If you don't think you'd like to read a collection of letters from a young London nanny to her sister--well, read it anyway. It's sharp, funny, brilliant, British, and did I mention that she's the nanny of the editor of the London Review of Books and Alan Bennett lives across the street?

The Arrangement | Ashley Warlick

How is it possible that I missed this book when it came out? This is an absolutely gorgeous, sensual, beautifully written novel about MFK Fisher's affair with her husband's best friend. Food, sex, glamorous travel, and the real-life story of a woman writer I knew little about...what's not to like?

Did I mention that the writing is GORGEOUS? I read that the author spent ten years researching and writing it, and I believe it.

Tonton Oh wow! I love MFK Fisher, she is such a brilliant stylist. Looking forward to reading this now😎 11mo

Mr Bridge | Evan S. Connell
Pickpick

Following Mrs. Bridge...the sequel (told from the husband‘s POV) is considerably darker and weirder. He‘s just as cloistered in white suburbia as his wife, just as emotionally stifled, but considerably more prejudiced. When I think about the time period when this was written, I can see what a pointed critique of the country club set it really was. Well worth reading—quick and engrossing—read with a friend, because you will want to talk about it!

Boxtersushi I enjoyed them both - I think it was in the wake of the movie featuring Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward as the Bridges. 2y

WOW. I picked this up after Meg Wolitzer recommended it in the NYT and it‘s incredible. A sweet, wistful, sometimes sad novel that is also a sharp social commentary. It reminded me of a few women in my family. Now I‘m off to pick up the sequel, Mr. Bridge.
