The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida
The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism

Rosebud, November 29, 2013

Have you wondered how an autistic brain works? This fascinating and very readable translation of questions posed to a thirteen-year-old autistic boy plus his answers (spelled out on a tablet, since he cannot talk)provide insights, humor, and inspiration for all of us.

The Dinner by Herman Koch
The Dinner

Rosebud, January 30, 2013

A well-crafted thriller that at first appears to be about a very boring family. Paul can't stand his successful and smug brother, but they (and their wives) are meeting for dinner. As each course arrives, we readers also are fed: surprising tidbids, clues, background, family history. As we digest these insights and bits of information, we get more and more wrapped up in the family and what goes on behind closed doors. If you have ever said "I didn't see that coming," you will probably get hooked on this book. No wonder it is an international best-seller in more than twenty countries so far. I predict that it will be made into a movie very soon.

Care of Wooden Floors
Care of Wooden Floors

Rosebud, January 1, 2013

Housesitting and catsitting for a friend... what could possibly go wrong? It's a chance to catch up on reading and writing and perhaps a little sightseeing. Just don't spill anything on the wooden floors. Oh, and don't touch the piano. And no rings on the coffee table. A fun novel, compelling, amusing, tightly written, and surprising. I couldn't put it down.
