Books to Read


Three books were given rave reviews in the Post on Sunday:
Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach, Michael Ondaatje’s Divisadera, Marianne Wiggins’s The Shadow Catcher.
Along the lines of Steve Levitt’s Freakonomics is a book by Robert Frank, The Economic Naturalist.  It’s best feature, according to the reviewer, is the questions it poses, for example, Why do keypad buttons on drive-up cash machines have Braille dots?

New audio books to consider:

The Naming of the Dead by Ian Rankin, The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai, and Gimple the Fool and Other Stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer, described as 3 tales that are "gossip transfigured by art."
