mistress_of_the_art.jpgMistress of the Art of Death

by Ariana Franklin

This was like nothing else I've ever read. It's sort of a bodice-ripper plus C.S.I. Or maybe it's CSI: Medieval. I'm usually not a fan of anything written about the era, but this book is a smart and edgy view of the Middle Ages. I'd like to believe that women had the knowledge and training that figures into the heroine's life.

From Bookmarks Magazine: [...] Critics agree that Mistress is an unusually smart and intriguing story. Franklin perfectly recreates the barbarous culture of the Middle Ages and the Crusades -- an era of religious persecution and idealism that clashed with the burgeoning importance of science and the rule of law. Grisly forensic details, combined with whodunit suspense, fascinating characters, timely themes, and even a little romance make for an excellent read.

If you love this book, there are 3 more but that's it. The author passed away in January 2011.

three-men-in-a-boat.jpgThree Men in a Boat
(To Say Nothing Of The Dog...)

by Jerome K. Jerome

Discovering that you have at least 25 ailments while researching something on Web M.D. is not a new passtime. The three hypochondriacs in this 120-year-old classic can really show you how it's done. Jerome makes the most mundane parts of life hilarious.

This has got to be one of the most perfect summer book club books. For starters, it's a short read. Second, the whole thing is about a river trip for three clerks in Victorian England. Third, it's laugh-out-loud funny. Fourth, you can find the book for almost nothing and there's certainly no wait for it at the library.

the_cape_ann.jpgThe Cape Ann

by Faith Sullivan

From the book jacket: Lark Erhardt, the six-year-old narrator of The Cape Ann, and her fiercely independent mother dream of owning their own house; they have their hearts set on the Cape Ann, chosen from a house catalog. But when Lark's father's gambling threatens the down payment her mother has worked so hard to save, Lark's mother takes matters into her own indomitable hands. A disarmingly involving portrait of a family struggling to stay together through the Great Depression, The Cape Ann is an unforgettable story of life from a child's-eye view.

In other words ... horrible era, great kid, strong mom and a dad that you'd like to choke. This book provided for a terrific discussion.

Birds_Without_Wings.jpgBirds Without Wings

by Louis de Bernières

This is not Corelli's Mandolin part II. From Amazon's description: The setting is a small village in southwestern Anatolia in the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. Everyone there speaks Turkish, though they write it in Greek letters. It’s a place that has room for a professional blasphemer; where a brokenhearted aga finds solace in the arms of a Circassian courtesan who isn’t Circassian at all; where a beautiful Christian girl named Philothei is engaged to a Muslim boy named Ibrahim. But all of this will change when Turkey enters the modern world.

Everyone in our book club really liked this book ... except me. I've included it on this list because of its overwhelming popularity.

coal_microhistory.jpgCoal: A Human History

by Barbara Freese

This is one of those microhistory books (like "Salt") that's really a nice departure from traditional book club fiction. The author writes about the profound and often surprising role coal has played in our lives - pulling nations together while tearing families apart, inspiring great technological leaps even as it inflicts poverty and illness. Part social, environmental, and political history, the saga of coal is ultimately a deeply revealing and under-appreciated piece of human history. (From Goodreads' review)

falling_leaves.jpgFalling Leaves: The Memoir of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter

by Adeline Yen Mah

I have a few other suggestions of what this book could have been subtitled. Like ... A life in hell with my father's second wife or And then I killed her. (Hat-tip to Danie for her much loved phrase.) This is how Amazon has it in their description:

"Snow White's stepmother looks like a pussycat compared to the monster under which Adeline Yen Mah suffered. The author's memoir of life in mainland China and--after the 1949 revolution--Hong Kong is a gruesome chronicle of nonstop emotional abuse from her wealthy father and his beautiful, cruel second wife. [...] Had she not escaped to America, where she experienced a fulfilling medical career and a happy marriage, her story would be unbearable; instead, it's grimly fascinating: Falling Leaves is an Asian Mommie Dearest."

i_know_this_much.jpgI know this much is true

by Wally Lamb

Where "She's Come Undone" could be classified as "chick lit," this book from Wally Lamb is the complete opposite. For starters, it's a hefty 900-page book.

From Publishers Weekly: [...] Some may be daunted by its length, its seemingly obsessive inclusion of background details and its many digressions. The topics it unflinchingly explores - mental illness, dysfunctional families, domestic abuse - are rendered with unsparing candor. But thanks to well-sustained dramatic tension, funky gallows humor and some shocking surprises, this sinuous story of one family's dark secrets and recurring patterns of behavior largely succeeds in its ambitious reach. [...] This is a fully developed and triumphantly resolved exploration of one man's suffering and redemption.

no_country_for_old_men.jpgNo Country for Old Men

by Cormac McCarthy

After the enormous success of The Border Trilogy, No Country For Old Men is a complete change of pace for McCarthy. The book opens with the discovery of a few million dollars and dead bodies - so expect some tough scenes. It's a riveting book, and there's plenty of action, but the sheriff and his wisdom form the real heart of the story. Though the Cohen Brothers did an amazing job on the movie, this is one of those times that the book is still WAY better than the movie.

let_the_great_world_spin.jpgLet The Great World Spin

by Colum McCann

Back before the Twin Towers were famous because of the horrors of September 11, the Towers enjoyed a day of worldwide fame when Phillippe Petit strung a cable between the towers and then walked (and danced) across the city canyon. I loved it that this book centered on one event that was not a disaster - which is too often the case with "moment in time" books. (We were all so innocent at one time, weren't we?) I loved the interconnectedness of the characters in the book, and easily could have read more.

the_namesake.jpgThe Namesake

by Jhumpa Lahiri

From Goodreads: The Namesake follows the Ganguli family through its journey from Calcutta to Cambridge to the Boston suburbs. Ashima and Ashoke Ganguli arrive in America at the end of the 1960s, shortly after their arranged marriage in Calcutta, in order for Ashoke to finish his engineering degree at MIT. Ashoke is forward-thinking, ready to enter into American culture if not fully at least with an open mind. His young bride is far less malleable. Isolated, desperately missing her large family back in India, she will never be at peace with this new world.

Here's what I can say: much better than the movie. (No surprise.)

The Nazi Officer's Wife:
How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust

by Edith Hahn Beer with Susan Dworkin

I can't read much about the Holocaust simply because it's just too much for me to bear. But for me, this book is different because it's about survival. This book is about one woman's ability to survive through the most awful time in 20th century Europe by distancing herself from her Jewish heritage and living a manufactured existence.

Edith Hahn was a smart law student in  joyous pre-war Austria when her story begins. (Think about a woman being in law school in 1937. That on its own is a book.) As it goes on, this is all about perseverance and determination in the most horrific of situations. Thankfully, Edith lived to be an old woman and eventually emigrated to Israel in 1987. There's a lot to talk about with this book.

song_yet_sung.jpgSong Yet Sung

by James McBride

Reading about slavery is normally just about more than I can take. And though I grimaced at times throughout this book, I was intrigued with how elegantly the characters solved the problems of communication and the stunning connectedness of people. I want (need?) to believe that part is factual. It doesn't make slavery any better, but is somehow reassuring to me that people were not as alone as I'd always pictured.

About the writing style ... it takes me about a dozen pages to get comfortable with McBride's writing style in this book before it really begins to roll. Once that happens, it's a fabulous read. I felt like there should have been at least another hundred pages. (How often can you say that about a book?) There was a point in the core of the book where the plot felt rushed. I wish he'd taken just a bit more time with it. Except for those criticisms, the characters are real and I miss them now that I'm done. More, please.

the_spirit_catches_you.jpgThe Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down: A Hmong Child, Her American Doctors, and the Collision of Two Cultures

by Anne Fadiman

There is a review about this amazing book on Amazon from one of the physicians on this case. It is so thoughtful and beautifully written, I have to share it in its entirety:

"I was one of the physicians involved in the care of Lia Lee. I'm referred to in the book as the physician that first diagnosed Lia's spells as seizures. Neil Ernst and Peggy Philp, the principal pediatricians in the book, were and are good friends of mine. Having experienced Lia Lee's saga personally, and then having read the book, I can only refer to Anne Fadiman's talent as astounding. Anne walks an incredibly fine, and very well documented, line as she describes what happens when American medical technology meets up with a deep and ancient Eastern culture. My team (Western medicine) failed Lia. Never have I felt so fairly treated in defeat, and never have I felt so much respect for an author's skillful distillation of a tragically murky confrontation of cultures.

ADDENDUM (8/8/09) I wrote the above review almost a decade ago. The experiences that I had during the events described in this book have continued to guide the way that I practice medicine. The Spirit Catches You has become a true classic in the medical and anthropological fields, being read in college, medical school, and nursing classes throughout the United States every year. This speaks to the enduring quality of the work that Anne Fadiman did in a book that remains unique in the skill with which it was written. The story it contains remains fresh and astoundingly relevant to the practice of medicine in particular, and cross-cultural relationships in general."

what_is_the_what.jpgWhat Is the What

by Dave Eggers

From Bookmarks Magazine

Dave Eggers is best known for A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (2000), and here he shows that he is as adroit at telling another person's biography as he is narrating his own. Over three years, he conducted 100 hours of interviews with Deng and visited Sudan with him in "synergistic collaboration" (Time). Labeled as a novel, this work nonetheless has a historical basis and lends a personal face to the brutality of civil war, squalor, and the struggle for survival. A few critics questioned where Deng's story ended and Eggers's literary license began, and the book as a whole could have been better edited. While visceral and heartrending, Deng's and Eggers's joint story is ultimately a powerful tale of hope. When both People and the ever-glum Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times rave, how can one resist?

the_sparrow.jpgThe Sparrow

by Mary Doria Russell

This was my first experience reading "SF, " as the devotees call it. One reviewer on Amazon called it "mature, philosophical science fiction in the grand tradition of authors such as Asimov, Clarke, and Huxley." This is the way the reviewer described the book in general: "The Sparrow" charts the journey of Emilio Sandoz, a Jesuit Priest and linguist, from the slums of San Juan to the planet of Rakhat, 4.3 Light Years from Earth, orbiting the star Alpha Centauri A. Along with an intriguing little group of well-meaning Jesuits, scientists, and engineers, this modern-day Cortez sets off to a new world in search, not of gold, but of spiritual treasure." I can't say this was the best book I've ever read. It's not my personal taste. But, we had one of the most spirited book club discussions ever following this book. And it introduced me to a genre that was completely foreign to me.

Lonesome_Dove.jpgLonesome Dove

by Larry McMurtry

The first person who ever recommended this book to me was a fashion stylist for a big, fancy retailer. So, here she was in this life of clothes and make-up and she said this was one of the best books she'd ever read. "Huh?" I thought. "That's a western."

I put my doubts aside, started the book and then devoured it. That might be common. Here's a snip from one reviewer on Amazon: "I have never really cared for Westerns so I started this book with some trepidation. My worries soon evaporated as I read the opening chapter, this was no western in the traditional sense, but a book about people and relationships in the harsh American frontier. I was soon enthralled by the characters involved in this epic cattle drive ... the quick witted Gus McCrae, the Tancturn Woodrow Call, the kid Newt, Jake Spoon, the womanizing ex ranger, Lorena the prostitute, and Gus's lost love Claire. The book is over 800 pages long but I have never been sadder to finish a book."

I just recently listened to this book again just to see if I still loved it. Simple answer: yes!  Not only is it still a wonderful story, the audio version is fabulous. And I still want it to have a different ending. If you need to go for a long car trip, this book is loved by both men and women. It's probably too rough for younger ears.
