What To Read This Week

May 17, 2019 11:56 AM



“The Parade is Eggers best piece of fiction he has written. It’s brief, propelled by the character’s sense of urgency to finish a job in a small time frame. Eggers has once again created an allegory for our current political state and pulls the trigger on the reader in the last chapter that punched me so hard in the face I wanted to call Eggers and ask, “Why are you so mean?” I love when a book does that to me.” - Jesse, BookHampton



“Save Me the Plums” by Ruth Reichl chronicles the life of this trailblazing and adventurous food writer and restaurant critic after she left the New York Times to take a job and the risk of a lifetime as the editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine. “Ruth’s book is so delicious I could eat every page!” - Jane, Bedside Reading



“Greek to Me” by Mary Norris. “Join the Comma Queen on her pursuit of all things Greek. Mary Norris, former copy-editor at The New Yorker magazine, takes us from her early language studies to her first travels deep into the heart of western culture. Of course there are some dashing Greek men we meet and delicious meals enjoyed along the way.” - Maryann, Canio’s Books (Mary Norris will be at Canio’s on Saturday, June 22, 5 p.m.)



“The East End” by Jason Allen. “A debut thriller that follows a local student who breaks into the wrong abandoned mansion at the wrong time. Local author with a local setting.” - Greg, Southampton Books
