Lilly, Bryan and Lucia Recommend

People are running themselves silly to be one step ahead of the curve and tell you what to read that’s current, not yet released, currently being written. What about gems you might have missed in the recent past?

****

Lilly Recommends:

Miles: The Autobiography by Miles Davis with Quincy Troupe

For the discerning individual who truly desires to know What Time It Is.

Bryan Recommends:

The Last Samurai by Helen De Witt

A novel set in contemporary London about a single mother’s funny and heartbreaking attempts to raise and educate her toddler son who happens to be a genius, and has read “The Illiad” in Greek by age 2… And that’s just the first half of this brilliant book!

Lucia Recommends:

Atmospheric Disturbances by Rivka Galchen

A very strange tale anchored by the arc of a simple love story (man loses woman, tries to get her back). Rivka Galchen touches deeply on ideas about how we sustain love and attempt to repair it when it begins to fade, and how we reconcile the person our lover becomes with the person we fell in love with.
