Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression by Mildred Arms Kalish
Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression

I loved this no-nonsense memoir, and I have multiple pages dog-earred so I can easily find the recipes the author was so kind to include. Reading this book felt like having tea with a friend of my grandmother.

City of Scoundrels: The Twelve Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago by Gary Krist
City of Scoundrels: The Twelve Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago

This is not excellent literature, but I recommend this book for the excellent research the author put into the topic. This is not a book of historical fiction. You hear about about 1919 Chicago in the words of the people who lived there & then. Not all of them were scoundrels, some were even worse. But, the author presents them to you, in their own words. I loved that.

This is not a nice, feel-good book. Warning: It contains adult themes. And it is written in such a compelling manner that I could not put it down even when the narrator really disgusted me. Months after finishing this book, I am still thinking about it, especially when India & China are in the news. Caution: reading this book could make you think.

Any author who puts out books my middle-school aged son begs me to buy for him to read deserves my vote for best read of the year.

Your Mythic Journey: Finding Meaning in Your Life Through Writing and Storytelling (Inner Work Book) by Sam Keen
Your Mythic Journey: Finding Meaning in Your Life Through Writing and Storytelling (Inner Work Book)

tmpting, September 1, 2011

This book is a smorgasbord of ideas for the person, who, for whatever reason, is in search of their own life. Genuinely living your own life, not the life you've been told you are living, is a rare occurrence. It's not that it's difficult. It's just that it's not possible without some reflection. The authors of this book give multiple reflective exercises to help you become the author of your own life.
