The History of Great Things by Elizabeth Crane (expected publication April 5, 2016)
Author and her deceased mother tell each other's life - not true versions, but rather "untrue but could've been true." Very meta-fictional at times, also sometimes hard-ish to keep track of the the voices, but worth the effort. I didn't really embrace either narrator as a person.
There is Life After College: What Parents and Students Should Know About Navigating School to Prepare for the Jobs of Tomorrow by Jeffrey Selingo
A very good book that every kid should read but only parents will.
You're Better than Me: a Memoir by Bonnie McFarlane
Her attempts to document her rise as a professional comedian. Would've enjoyed more about her youth on a (northern!!!) Alberta farm.
The Black Calhouns: From Civil War to Civil Rights with One African American Family by Gail Lumet Buckley
Sadly, although the subject should be very interesting, the author rendered it near-lifeless. She seems unable to exclude any datum her research turned up, resulting in a string of facts rather than a narrative of life.
Wish You Were Here by Rita Mae Brown
I don't kow who I like better in this book -- the animals or the people!! The author incorporates animals into her story and the result is pure delight! I will read this book again, or maybe listen to it next time.
