Foreskin's Lament: A Memoir by Shalom Auslander
Foreskin's Lament: A Memoir

aunnie, July 6, 2009

This book was hilarious. The trials and tribulations of Shalom Auslander versus God kept me in stitches. While serious at points, the seriousness is perfectly balanced with the jocose.

The Mercy Papers: A Memoir of Three Weeks by Robin Romm
The Mercy Papers: A Memoir of Three Weeks

aunnie, July 4, 2009

I stumbled upon this book accidentally and was pleasantly surprised. Robin Romm is a recently recognized author and this memoir is candid, poignant, and so, so sweet. I am impressed with the way she writes like a seasoned memoirist. Although the book is sad and deals with loss, it also has a lot to say about life.

The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint by Brady Udall
The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint

aunnie, June 16, 2009

Although the synopsis of the book makes it seem too whacky and unbelieveable, The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint is fascinating, hilarious, and gut wrenching all at the same time. It is a fairly quick read and a great selection for summer.

Live through This: A Mother's Memoir of Runaway Daughters and Reclaimed Love by Debra Gwartney
Live through This: A Mother's Memoir of Runaway Daughters and Reclaimed Love

aunnie, June 15, 2009

This book was so heart wrenching and at the same time terrific and hopeful. I finished it in less than two days and stayed up late reading it each night. It is a seamless memoir and Gwartney's descriptions of her own defeat and vivid imagery of the lives her daughters lead, make the book a must for nonfiction lovers.

The Women by T C Boyle
The Women

aunnie, June 15, 2009

T.C. Boyle is true to form in this book which fictionally depicts Frank Lloyd Wright's liaisons with various women. The character of Miriam is awesome. T.C. Boyle paints her to be absolutely wretched, whereas Olgivanna, the Frank's one time mistress puts up with a lot. While the book is fictional, it is an interesting look into the bizarre world of Frank Lloyd Wright.
