The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan

Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his affair with his uncle’s young wife. His life, in a brutal Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway, is a daily struggle to save the men under his command. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever.   A beautiful novel about the many forms of good and evil, of truth and transcendence, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.

The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Wednesday, October 4, 2017

The Round House is a story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family. Riveting and suspenseful, The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.

The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

Addie Baum is the spirited daughter of an immigrant Jewish family, born in 1900 and growing up in the North End of Boston.  Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. From the tenement apartment she shared with her parents and two sisters, to her first, disastrous love affair, to finding the love of her life, eighty-five-year-old Addie recounts her adventures with humor and compassion for the naïve girl she once was.
