Snow in August by Pete Hamill
Snow in August

kwyszynski, April 11, 2008

Just as Michael Devlin imagined himself inside the stories told by Rabbi Hirsch, I fell right into the pages of this book--into the streets of 1920's Brooklyn. I heard crack of Jackie Robinson's bat through the radio speakers, I feared the Falcons, I felt the warmth of unlikely friendship during a cold august snow and I saw the immense power of believing--no matter the religion.

How to Be Good by Nick Hornby
How to Be Good

kwyszynski, April 11, 2008

Hornby has a way of writing about absolutely nothing and everything all at the same time. In How to Be Good he explores the life of a seemingly normal family through their faults, fetishes and overwhelming desire to find normalcy. In the end, they discover that there is no normal life, there is just life, and as long as they stick together it will be a good one.

Good Grief by Lolly Winston
Good Grief

kwyszynski, April 11, 2008

Reading this book was a bittersweet experience. Watson depicts the life of a woman after her young husbands death so delicately and so passionately, that long after I put the book down I felt the same cold bite of grief and lonliness nipping at my own heart. And while sadness weighed so much into this story, there was a lot of witty humor, moving relationships and an ending that teaches us that not only is it acceptable--but possible--to find happiness after losing a loved one.
