My NPR obsession leads me to the most wonderful things! While listening to Fresh Air last night, I stumbled upon a rave review of Patricia Volk's Shocked: My Mother, Schiaparelli and Me. Naturally, I had to purchase it ASAP. The book is absolutely beautiful, as Fresh Air's Maureen Corrigan notes, but this coming-of-age memoir is so much than it's cover. I'm hoping to start it this weekend, however I have a strict rule of only reading one book at a time and still need to finish Therese Anne Fowler's Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. So basically, this weekend is going to be one big reading party. Who needs clubs and bars when you have books?!
