In Week Three of our Lockdown, I am feeling the familiar ups and downs…but on Tuesdays, I am always excited. New books!
Today I downloaded one that has been out for a bit; I’ve been seeing it around, and I think it might be just the thing for these troubled times.
Separation Anxiety, by Laura Zigman
From bestselling author Laura Zigman, a hilarious novel about a wife and mother whose life is unraveling and the well-intentioned but increasingly disastrous steps she takes to course-correct her relationships, her career, and her belief in herself…
Currently I am still reading The Operator, by Gretchen Berg, a book that takes us back to the 1950s…gentler times?
What if you could listen in on any phone conversation in town? With great humor and insight, The Operator by Gretchen Berg delivers a vivid look inside the heads and hearts of a group of housewives and pokes at the absurdities of 1950s America, a simpler time that was far from simple. Think The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in the suburbs with delicious turns of jealousy, infidelity, bigotry, and embezzlement thrown in for good measure. The Operator is irresistible!”
— Kathryn Stockett, author of the New York Times bestselling novel The Help
