Sophie's Choice by William Styron
Sophie's Choice

Roseann, November 3, 2006

News of William Styron's death brought me back to the first time I read this stunning book, shortly after it was published. Twenty-seven years later, my opinion has not changed: Sophie's Choice is one of the best contemporary American novels.

Truth and Beauty: A Friendship by Ann Patchett
Truth and Beauty: A Friendship

Roseann, September 7, 2006

As unwavering in its honesty as Ann Patchett was in her friendship to Lucy Grealy, this loving biography of a friendship lingered with me long after I finished reading it. I was glad I'd read several of Grealy's books, including her memoir, first. She's a real human being to me now.

The Tender Bar: A Memoir by J. R. Moehringer
The Tender Bar: A Memoir

Roseann, August 15, 2006

What a writer J.R. Moehringer is, at once elegant, gritty, and generous, as befits his terrific memoir. I'd rate it near perfect, but I feel the continuity becomes choppy two-thirds of the way through; I wish the editor had made a few transitions smoother. But I would not hesitate to recommend "The Tender Bar."
