The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields
The Stone Diaries

Sabena, July 15, 2013

Carol Shield's The Stone Diaries is a brilliant portrayal of a seemingly ordinary woman's life, Daisy Stone Goodwill, from birth to death, alone and in relationship with her friends and loved ones. Shields has built a story by skillful, honest writing, steadily paced as a needlepoint journal, with characters who are surprisingly, wonderfully engaging, The Stone Diaries is one of my favorite novels, full of life almost too real to believe it's fiction. At the end, I wanted to ask of the author, "How did you do it?"

The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite by David Kessler
The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite

Sabena, March 20, 2013

It’s hard to imagine that the food processing industry and restaurant chains that most of us patronize work so hard and so consistently to find ways to overcome and override the human brain’s natural systems to regulate hunger and hook us on the deadly trio of salt, sugar, and fat. But that’s exactly what Dr. David A. Kessler, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Association, uncovers in his book, "The End of Overeating." There are newer books covering the same ground but it was this investigative journey that laid out the critical dirty facts and explained why you can “bet you can’t eat just one.”

Anything You Say Can and Will Be Used Against You: Stories

Sabena, September 24, 2011

Heart pounding, masterful storytelling by a former Louisiana police officer, based on the author's experiences. Clear out your afternoon before you pick up this book.
