Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
Beautiful Ruins

Nanny, August 26, 2012

Jess Walter writes a novel which spans from the 1960's to the present day. Part love story, part spoof on the modern day film industry, Walter's characters are both flawed and lovable. Hilarious and moving, this is a great summer read!

The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
The Glass Room

Nanny, September 28, 2011

This a story of an unusual house and those who inhabit it. Mawer's writing pulls the reader into a sensual and sophisticated world which begins just prior to the start of WW II. His characters are captivating and the tale is gripping. I found this book hard to put down.

A prequel to another author's book? A book first published in 1979? Really? Winslow has written a prequel to Trevanian's classic thriller Shibumi and it works! Winslow tells the story of the early days of trained assassin Nicholai Hel in a way that would make Trevanian proud.
