The Namesake: A Novel by Jhumpa Lahiri
 
Interesting, Insightful, Beautiful

I read this book for the second time and it stands the test test of time. Exploring the duality between eastern and western culture within one family, the Namesake is well written and woven tightly by good writing and editing. This is Lahiri’s best work so far.

The Arrival by Shaun Tan
 
Insightful, Dramatic, Beautiful

The Shape of Family: A Novel by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
 

Interesting perspective on love, loss and how different cultures cope with both. Not quite at the same level of The Secret Daughter but worthy of some good discussion.

 
Insightful, Dramatic, Inspiring

Brilliant sequel that does not let down. Atwood is economical with her words and provides evocatively different viewpoints from the Gilead. I’m not sure how much I would have enjoyed this book if I hadnt read the Handmaid’s Tale first. Both books are strickingly pertinent to current western politics and read as a cautionary tale of the fragility of human rights even in the most democratic countries.

Met the mark of a good Covid distraction.

Pax by Sara Pennypacker
 
Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting

Chose to “Bookclub” this one with my kid. It’s a bit unnerving in terms of trauma as well as unhealthy family relationships...But it’s worth the discomfort. Non-duality- two but not two theme is poignant.

Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman
 
Brilliant, Interesting, Beautiful

Brilliant. Good sci-fi type read for no. So if I readers

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
 
Beautiful, Interesting

Read this in high school and just re-read it...still a relevant and thought-provoking parable that all young and not so young adults should read as a reminder of the worth of work but more so our dreams and passions.
