Speaking of Summer Reading…A Few Reviews

The Christian Science Monitor shines a light on summer literature beyond what is of course expected to be the summer blockbuster, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”.

Says reviewer Yvonne Zipp
“Love stories shallow and deep–The search for love – whether by a N.Y. single or a Holocaust survivor – lifts summer reading.” The two titles reviewed are:

  • Melissa (Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing)Bank’s “The Wonder Spot”, a book of short stories about teenaged Sophie Applebaum in which she matures, still single, through her forties… and
  • Nicole (Man Walks Into A Room) Krauss’s “The History of Love”, written from the perspective of Leo Gursky, a Polish Holocaust survivor who lost everything but the memory of his first love.
