I haven't read Brasyl but the sci fi group here talks about it often enough that I've put it on my list.
Just finished INSOMNIAC CITY
New York, Oliver, and Me Its not just a love story to Oliver Sachs, but to NYC as well.
I recently finished reading Spice: The History of a Temptation by Jack Turner, which was very interesting but a slow read that was hard to get through.
This is the first autobiography of Maya Angelou in which she tells the story of her life from birth to young adulthood and the birth of her son Guy in the early 40's. I was blown away with her writing and her recollection of a severe and difficult life growing up in America as an African American child and young woman. She is an amazing writer and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
That is one book that I really would like to read! I've entered for it every time it popped up in the Early Reviewers, but never won it. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It looks so interesting. :-)
Comedy writer Adam Resnick, who has written for David Letterman and Saturday Night Live, now writes about his life in a series of essays that are fabulously funny and yet disturbing. I could not help but laugh through these stories and some hit very close to home. Recommended to those not afraid of dark humor.
Started Max Perkins: Editor of a Genius by A. Scott Berg.
This is the story of Maude, a woman born in the late 1800s and written by her granddaughter. The reader is taken on a nonstop journey that was Maude's life-from losing her parents early and then her first husband, marrying her second husband because of the social mores at the time and dealing with the major events in her life time from WWI, the flu epidemic, the depression and WWII. Life was hard for Maude but she kept her spirits up and kept going. A fast read and a very interesting look back at a woman's life in the 1900s. And no more complaining about house work for me!
