Leopard at the Door by Jennifer McVeigh.

Story’s not original, but descriptions are spectacular and pace breathtaking.

Crazy Salad and Scribble Scribble by Nora Ephron

Serious, sharp-tongued essays on women, media, politics. Decades-old, depressingly relevant.

The Book Of Daniel (I couldn’t finish it)

books

The Book of Daniel by E.L. Doctorow.

Genius insight into history. Protagonist is explicitly sadistic, misogynistic wife-abuser.

Note: I  can recommend pages 34-35 in the original paperback edition that describe a time in American history with eerie parallels to today.

books

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Amnesia imparts self-awareness. Memory colors perception. Light, fun, yet profound.
