An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin
An Object of Beauty

Vivian Solomon, August 4, 2012

A brief history of contemporary, modern, and pop art, wrapped up in a novel. Martin's descriptions of specific art works (with photographs) are lovely. I gave the book only 4 stars because I was not thrilled by the plot. But I did read the book in one sitting, so I recommend it.

The Wave: In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean by Susan Casey
The Wave: In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean

Vivian Solomon, December 30, 2011

I can't stop talking about and recommending this book. It's fascinating - and on a subject to which I had not given much thought. The author interviews interesting, and often humorous, experts about terrifying experiences at sea. Give it a try!
