Books On My Nightstand
I'm busy baking today (cookie exchange on Friday!), but here are a few books I'm reading these days.
Mrs. Kimble, by Jennifer Haigh--continuing my reading of Jennifer Haigh's novels.
All Gone: A Memoir of My Mother's Dementia. With Refreshments, by Alex Witchel--a daughter tries to hold on to her mother by cooking her the comfort foods of her childhood.
The Receptionist, An Education at The New Yorker, by Janet Groth--a behind-the-scenes look at working at the New Yorker in the 1950s-1970s.
The Love of My Youth, by Mary Gordon
The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris, by John Baxter--well of course, it's a book about Paris.
