I’ve finally gotten around to reading some new (and new-ish) releases that I’ve had on my pile for a while.
At the top of the pile? Eleanor Brown’s The Light of Paris, a lovely book about a grandmother and a granddaughter, one in the 1920s, the other in the 1990s, trying to find their true selves in the face of the restrictions imposed by their families and society. And where better to do that than Paris?
From there I went on to Stephanie Clifford’s Everybody Rise, an exaggerated portrait of a certain segment of New York life back in the boom days before the crash, featuring a social climber who finds herself in deep water (literally, at one point).
