Swing Time by Zadie Smith (2016)
“Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from northwest London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.”
Dubliners by James Joyce (1914)
“James Joyce’s Dubliners is a vivid and unflinching portrait of ‘dear dirty Dublin’ at the turn of the twentieth century. These fifteen stories, including such unforgettable ones as ‘Araby,’ ‘Grace,’ and ‘The Dead,’ delve into the heart of the city of Joyce’s birth, capturing the cadences of Dubliners’ speech and portraying with an almost brute realism their outer and inner lives.”
Lord of the Flies by William Golding (1954)
“The book focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous attempt to govern themselves.”
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (2014)
“From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the stunningly beautiful instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.”
Priestdaddy: A Memoir by Patricia Lockwood (2017)
“When the expense of a medical procedure forces the 30-year-old Patricia to move back in with her parents, husband in tow, she must learn to live again with her family’s simmering madness, and to reckon with the dark side of a childhood spent in the bosom of the Catholic Church.”
