Dear Readers & Book Club members: Today’s #FridayReads comes courtesy of The Book Club Cookbook, book club website extraorindaire!, who invited me to do a novel pairing–like pairing wine & food, but with novels.
Reader-chefs, today for your palette I have prepared for you 2 Tales of 2 Marriages: Courtney Maum’s I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN HERE WITHOUT YOU, newly out in paperback, and Richard Yates’ REVOLUTIONARY ROAD.
You may remember me mentioning both novels as favorites–delectable in their own right. Put them together for your book club & you’ve got a whole new compare-and-contrast taste treat!
* Please come back next week for another #FridayReads. *
This week’s #FridayReads hasn’t been read yet, but it has been pre-ordered! DINNER WITH JACKSON POLLOCK: Recipes, Art & Nature.
I bet he threw a lot of spaghetti sauce at the wall to see if it’d stick!
Sauce jokes aside, I am a big Pollock fan and fascinated with the idea that the famously misanthropic and alcoholic Pollock could also be a superb host and, apparently, had a penchant for baking.Talk about character nuance!
And the photography in this book looks luscious as well.
