My Brother's Madness by Paul Pines
My Brother's Madness

Carol Green, September 9, 2009

This was a well-written book describing the author's tumultuous relationship with his brother who is schizophrenic. Through it all, the author is supportive and tries to understand the world through his brother's eyes. A good, engaging memoir.

A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
A Million Little Pieces

Carol Green, June 17, 2008

I can see why you would feel betrayed to read a non-fiction book and then find out it wasn't actually true. However, if you read this book knowing that it's fiction, it's still a really powerful, well-written book. I highly recommend it.

The Big Book of Weaving: Handweaving in the Swedish Tradition: Techniques, Patterns, Designs and Materials
The Big Book of Weaving: Handweaving in the Swedish Tradition: Techniques, Patterns, Designs and Materials

Carol Green, June 17, 2008

For learning the basics of weaving, this is a really good book. It has illustrations and step-by-step instructions for how to do everything you need to know for a first project. Plus, there are several really good patterns included. If you can only have one book about weaving, this should be the one.

This is a well written book that slowly draws you into the characters. Abu-Jaber's descriptions are really good.

Bento Box in the Heartland: My Japanese Girlhood in Whitebread America by Linda Furiya
Bento Box in the Heartland: My Japanese Girlhood in Whitebread America

Carol Green, July 4, 2007

The combination of a memoir with recipes and a focus on food is not a new idea; however, Linda Furiya succeeds in creating an interesting read. By connecting her memories to food, she manages to engage and entertain the reader. You can almost imagine yourself in her shoes.
