October Title: Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

This rhapsodic tribute to a bygone era conjures up mesmerizing images of 1930s New York.  Two worlds collide on New Year's Eve 1937, and three lives will never be the same.  For Katey Kontent and Eve Ross, two working gals out on the town, a chance encounter with patrician banker Tinker Grey sets into motion a series of events causing far-reaching consequences.  As Towles explores the seemingly random ways in which both choice and chance can impact the future, Katey, Eve, and Tinker each face a dark night of the soul, during which fates are twisted, reshaped, and realigned.  Discerning readers will draw parallels between Towles and the ominously ironic Edith Wharton while relishing the fact that the snappy dialogue and descriptive prose are wrapped in a compelling narrative. (Booklist Reviews)

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

November Title: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways. In 1946 England, writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a man living on Guernsey, recently liberated from Nazi occupation.  So begins a correspondence that introduces Juliet to members of a unique reading group.  Named to protect its members from arrest by the Germans, the society shares their unique love of literature and life with a newfound friend.  Charming and optimistic without trivializing its dark subject, this debut epistolary novel celebrates the power of books to connect and comfort people during difficult times.  Reminiscent of Helene Hanff's 84 Charing Cross Road, this is a warm, funny, tender, and thoroughly entertaining celebration of the power of the written word. (Library Journal)

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book.  Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

December Title: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

Ursula todd was born in 1910 and is fated to die and be reborn over and over until she "gets it right".  Life after life after life: Atkinson's telling title suggest not some glorious afterworld but the structure of this remarkable novel, about an English girl born in February, 1910.  In fact, Ursula is stillborn in an opening chapter but emerges a healthy baby in the next; and the author then hopscotches through time, circling back to offer alternate versions of Ursula's life.  Did Ursula endure an unwanted pregnancy, see her broher die of influenza, enter into a sour marriage, or not? Did she survive World Warr II Britain or instead marry a German and face down Hitler, a gun in her hand? Atkinson delivers a clear understanding that one life can take different avenues, and what a difference that can make.  (Library Journal)

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book.  Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.
