If you want a riveting, exquisitely written crime novel, look no further. Memorable characters, unbearable tension and plenty of twists and turns make this an addictive read. Not for the faint of heart, as there’s plenty of 1950s style violence against women.

War in Val d'Orcia: An Italian War Diary, 1943-1944 Cover Image

Published: NYRB Classics - August 7th, 2018

NYRB Classics has recently brought the two volumes of Iris Origo’s Italian War Diary (A Chill in the Air:  An Italian War Diary 1939-1940 and War in Val D'Orcia: An Italian War Diary 1943-1944) back into print. An Englishwoman living in Italy under fascism, Origo writes about the run up to World War II and life during wartime (under both fascist and Nazi rule) with immediacy, directness, and humor that bring her experience to life. She writes of sheltering POWs and refugees as if not doing so could never be an option. Well worth reading, in these times especially.

Published: NYRB Classics - June 2nd, 2015

My ultimate summer reading rec for 2019! Elizabeth Taylor is an incredible writer and this book is the perfect combination of gossipy and smart. Set in post-WWII England, she perfectly captures the feeling of a seaside town in decline and somehow makes it funny and charming. The pages are populated with a quirky and unique cast of characters that will stay with you long after you finish.
