Did you love Curtis Sittenfeld's PREP? This is the book for you! Fantastic use of multiple voices and set in an all girls boarding school after an alleged affair between a teacher and a former student. I read it in two days!

My favorite question is, “What do you recommend for building a newborn’s first library?” In addition to board books for babies, I love literary fiction, nonfiction about nature & history, and memoirs (especially memoirs in graphic format, such as Emmanuel Guibert’s memoirs of WWII.)

I read literary fiction, essays, some short stories, memoirs, history, and true crime. I’m drawn to stories set in the West, about women’s interior lives, refugees, and literature in translation.
