STAFF PICKS For Adults
PARIS: A LOVE STORY, by Kati Marton
A revealing memoir, this book is a great read about the lightness of love, the drama of war, and sudden death with Paris in the background.
— S. Sarmiento
BEAUTIFUL RUINS, by Jess Walter
The story spins from the making of the film Cleopatra (1963) in Italy to Hollywood today. The characters and the locations are well defined and Walter throws in a lot of wit and pathos. It all wraps up beautifully in the end, so enjoy!
— B. Dito
WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED,
by Christopher Brookmyre
Why had I never heard of this guy? This is an amazing mystery — wild storyline à la Kate Atkinson, grim Scottish humor à la Ian Rankin, intrepid heroines à la April Smith. Brilliant!
— T. Gartner
