    Lots of good recommendations once again, Lisa. That Maggie Smith one sounds really good, I do just love her work. I wish I had read the Fat Talk book when my daughter was young. Although I was purposeful in how I talked about food and healthy eating, etc., when you’re stuck in disordered thinking around the topic, stuff seeps through. Fortunately, she seems to have a better relationship with food than I did at her age.

    As usual, I have a couple of suggestions for you. The Trees, by Percival Everett was an excellent read. It’s a murder mystery that addresses racism in an interesting way – very well written. I’ll definitely read more of Everett’s books. The other, to lighten things up, is The Jesus Cow, by Michael Perry. I have read 3 of his non-fiction books which are folksy stories about his life in rural Wisconsin, kind of a Garrison Keillor feel to them. This is his only work of fiction so far and I found myself laughing out loud while listening to the audio book. It helped that Perry read it himself, of course, but the story is just a lovely satire on the impact of marketing and social media in America. Happy Reading!
