The Heavy: A Mother, A Daughter, A Diet—A Memoir, by Dara-Lynn Weiss
A follow-up to the controversial 2012 Vogue article in which Weiss discussed why she decided to put her 7-year-old daughter on a diet, the book promises to be thought- and discussion-provoking.
Flight Behavior, by Barbara Kingsolver
In Kingsolver’s latest, powerful novel, Dellarobia Turnbow, an unhappy young Tennessee farm wife, stumbles upon what seems to be a miracle: a valley alive with beautiful monarch butterflies. But outsiders ascribe darker reasons to the butterflies’ presence, reasons that spark tensions and challenge beliefs.
A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini
Like his debut novel, The Kite Runner, Hosseini’s wildly popular best-seller is set in Afghanistan. Here, two women, thrown together through cruel circumstances, forge a bond that is stronger than the forces—both political and personal—that conspire against them. A riveting, bittersweet story.
Maine, by J. Courtney Sullivan
A runner-up in our October 2012 poll, Maine could be the antidote to late-winter blahs: Love and family are at its heart, as three generations of Kelleher women unpack their secrets, hopes, and longings when they arrive at their summer cottage in Maine.
