THE ARSONIST by Sue Miller by mistyviolet (see profile) July 24, 2014 04:30:19 PM

"I enjoyed this very well written book until I got to the end. Then I felt cheated. Where was the conclusion? What happened? Who was guilty? Who died? Who loved? Frankie and Bud were clearly drawn, likeable characters. Frankie’s life in Africa was detailed enough to make her believable if unknown..." read more

BOOK OF THE MONTH
  • Drink A Gaughin Learn More>

    Infused with passion fruit, a marriage of sweet and tart, this drink is an homage to Augusta, the artist half of the marriage in Life Drawing.

    Ingredients:

    2 Oz. white rum
    1/2 Oz. lime juice
    1/2 Oz. lemon juice
    1/2 Oz. passion fruit syrup

  • Eat Hemingway's Favorite Hamburger Learn More>

    Last year, a hamburger recipe was discovered among Hamingway's papers housed at the John F. Kennedy Library. (Yes, it's true!)

    Our tribute to Owen, the writer half of the marriage in the novel, this hamburger is a bit more elaborate (ironic, given Hemingway invented it) but well worth the trouble. As Saveur magazine reports, "The result is juicy and vibrant, its many constituent parts melding into a single, intensely savory whole."

  • Listen The Dimming of the Day by Bonnie Raitt Learn More>

    Robin shared with us a song she listened to over and over again while writing Life Lessons. She calls it "the theme song for the book."

    "Dimming Of The Day"


    This old house is falling down around my ears
    I'm drowning in a river of my tears
    When all my will is gone you hold me sway
    I need you at the dimming of the day

    You pulled me like the moon pulls on the tide
    You know just where I keep my better side

    What days have come to keep us far apart
    A broken promise or a broken heart
    Now all the bonny birds have wheeled away
    I need you at the dimming of the day

    Come the night you're only what I want
    Come the night you could be my confidant

    I see you on the street and in company
    Why don't you come and ease your mind with me
    I'm living for the night we steal away
    I need you at the dimming of the day

    I need you at the dimming of the day
