Scheherazade Goes West: Different Cultures, Different Harems by Fatema Mernissi
Scheherazade Goes West: Different Cultures, Different Harems

Nikki Rhodes, January 29, 2013

This book was an absolutely fascinating read. A study by an outsider of my own culture that made me consider it much differently - and extremely accessible. So glad I picked it off the shelf.

Gilead: A Novel by Marilynne Robinson
Gilead: A Novel

Nikki Rhodes, July 28, 2008

Robinson's prose is so light you can sort of fly through it, not with regard to speed but just to the physical feeling of reading this book. While you get wrapped up in the characters, like any story, the writing here is the main attraction for me. It's enough to make me look at more of Robinson's work.

Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore
Coyote Blue

Nikki Rhodes, October 13, 2007

Christopher Moore has a talent for stepping in that very irreverent place just short of disrespectful; this comes out wonderfully in Coyote Blue, making it one of Moore's best, and funniest, books. Coyote Blue is definitely recommended.

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
She's Come Undone

Nikki Rhodes, October 13, 2007

I can't believe this book was written by a man--Lamb's portrayal of Dolores is so incredible and so believable, and his compassion for her as a character is amazing. This is an incredibly emotional and intense book.

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Purple Hibiscus

Nikki Rhodes, April 24, 2007

Kambili and her family really come to life in this book, and their story is very resonant, even across the ocean. I have recommended Purple Hibiscus already to more people than I can count: it's vividly written and totally real, and I haven't read anything as good in months.
