Bright Lines - Tanwi Nandini Islam

This gorgeous cover and bright spine kept taunting me from the bookshelves and after hearing the buzz I had to pick it up. The writing is sensual in its description, lush in detail and expansive, taking it’s time. Islam keeps the world of these characters balancing on a pinhead and the pages roll by as they unearth their secrets and seek their place. Moving between Brooklyn and Bangladesh, you’ll enjoy following this family wherever they take you.

Dear Committee Members - Julie Schumacher

Clever and just the right amount of snide, Dear Committee Members is the perfect stress relief for job related low spirits. A letter of recommendation is a gift to students and a curse to many a professor. Schumacher manages to turn this oft bemoaned aspect of professorial life into comedic play and turns the epistolary form on its head. As her character Jason Fitger bemoans his writing career and romantic foibles, his frustration ekes out in the droll letters that make up this delightful book’s core.
