Cannot recommend another Patchett, but will mention an unusual book which I enjoyed: "Inheriting Edith" by Zoe Fishman. It's a good read about a woman who inherits a mansion AND care of the deceased owner's mother who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. Edith is the faltering mother, and the insights into her mind (knowing and understanding her condition and her future) are remarkable. Unique and worth a look!

I cannot think of another Ann Patchett, but I would highly recommend "Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk", by Kathleen Rooney. Lillian, who is in her 80's, lives in NYC. On New Year's Eve she takes a walk around the city, reminiscing about her life. She's a strong independent woman and I want to be just like her when I grow up!


Ooo, if you haven't read Bel Canto, then that's top of my list. And State of Wonder is pretty good too!


maybe will read this next...
except i'm only 34% finished with IN THE WOODS.
if you read 1 page per night it can kinda take awhile to finish.
ya know?


I'l make it really easy for you Carol - you won't even need to write it down to remember. ANY book wiitten by Anne Patchett is absolutely worth reading - I promise!
