Thanks, Obama by David Litt
Former speechwriter for President Barack Obama, David Litt became one of the youngest White House speechwriters ever. In this honest memoir, Litt brings us inside the world of Obama. He describes what it’s like to accidentally trigger an international incident, and he answers questions you never knew you had. An interesting read.
Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
It’s been seven years since Egan’s bestselling novel-in-stories A Visit From the Goon Squad was published. Now the Pulitzer Prize–winning author offers her first historical novel. Anna Kerrigan becomes the first female diver at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, responsible for the dangerous and necessary upkeep of warships during World War II, just as she meets a man who sheds light on her father’s mysterious disappearance. This gripping book will have you hooked after the first few pages.
All Grown Up by Jami Attenberg
All Grown Up‘s Andrea Bern asks the question of every woman: “Why is being single the only thing people think of when they think of me?” she asks, but defining herself otherwise—given those peskily intrusive social norms and her own conflicting desires—really isn’t all that easy. Every singleton will relate to this fizzing novel.
