I have read several books since the beginning of 2017. Here is a list of them:
Moon glow, by Michael Chabon
An Unnecessary Woman, by Rabih Alameddine
Nutshell, by Ian McEwan
Judas, by Amos Oz
Frantumaglia, A Writer’s Journey, by Elena Ferrante
Women Heroes of World War II, by Kathryn J. Atwood
I am currently reading Arch of Triumph, by Erich Maria Remarque. I have read two other books that he wrote: All Quiet on the Western Front, and wrote The Night in Lisbon.
I was away for two weeks. I visited my daughter and her family in Washington. It was a wonderful two weeks, filled with joy and love. What more can one ask for!
I hope to post more during 2017. Time seemed to get away from me during 2016.
I have recently added a couple of new books to my to-read stack:
Rav Hisda’s Daughter: Book I: Apprentice: A Novel of Love, the Talmud and Sorcery, by Maggie Anton
I totally enjoyed Maggie Anton’s trilogy on Rashi’s Daughters, and look forward to this book.
The Oxford Book of Jewish Stories, by Ilan Stavans (recommended by Leora)
Paris, The Novel, by Edward Rutherfurd
I am in the middle of reading New York, The Novel, by Edward Rutherfurd. Well, I shouldn’t say “middle”, as I am about 18% into it, as it is almost 900 pages. I do enjoy Rutherfurd’s books, though.
Leora’s recipe for Stuffed Squash with Yams sounds delicious.
On a very serious note, Batya/me-ander has a post regarding a breast milk mix-up…in other words a baby received breast milk from an HIV-positive mother.
