Books - June 2006

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
A memoir that reminds us we can love our parents without turning into them.

Feel by Chris Heath
A biography of Robbie Williams that accomplishes three things: tells an honest and original story about fame; shares useless but fascinating gossip about Robbie; and by its reading, cements my status as adopted European.

The Godfather by Mario Puzo
Its only flaw is that Michael doesn't ever say "Fredo, Fredo, Fredo." But the horse's head is there.

The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland
The fictionalized diary of Napoleon's wife, before she was Napoleon's wife. Good stuff about the French revolution. Also, fashion and sex.

I highly recommend "Eat. Pray. Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert for your next book review... :)
