Some recommendations and recent reads from our staff: #FridayReads
.@NadxiNieto is reading Fruit of the Drunken Tree by @ingrid_rojas_c, a "stunning debut novel about violence and mythmaking that follows the lives of two women in Escobar-era Bogotá."
Julie Trebault is reading @ArmisteadMaupin's Tales of the City, a “strongly addictive saga that intertwines stories of men and women looking for sex, love, and themselves in the rousing, tolerant, and cozy atmosphere of San Francisco in the 1970s.”
.@SuzanneNossel is reading The World As It Is, @brhodes’s account of being Obama's right-hand man on foreign policy, which serves as both “a poignant reminder of the world that was before the 2016 election and a cautionary tale of a world that often wasn't as it appeared to be.”
.@thomasomelia just read @Egangoonsquad's novel Manhattan Beach, which “transports the reader to 1930s New York, and the intersection of high society and mobsters, in the story of a remarkable young woman's coming of age during wartime.”
.@caits_meissner is reading @AlexanderChee’s How To Write An Autobiographical Novel: “These essays are capturing me with their quietly bold and beautifully rendered meditations on life, identity, growing up, being a writer and (achingly perfect, this one) tending rose gardens.”
.@fletchlivesaf is reading Nico Walker’s Cherry, a story Esquire claims “may be the first great novel of the American opioid epidemic. ”
Anoosh Gasparian is reading Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls: “Don't think I need to tell people what it's about, but reading parts of it aloud to whoever finds themselves in the same room as me has been such a joy.”
.@kyliacassone is reading Hunger by @rgay, in which Gay “writes about her relationship with food in a way that is both relatable and heart-wrenching” with “sharp and candid prose.”
