From PW: In this sweeping drama, Coleridge zeroes in on a charismatic tycoon whose desires and drive know no bounds. Told through his godchildren's eyes over the course of three decades, his illicit passions and activities come to startling life, as well as the extraordinary impact he has on his charges, despite the paucity of their interactions. Coleridge's latest family epic will hold readers spellbound.
It was a good library week, as four new books came my way:
First was What Happened to Anna K., which was the subject of last week's Friday Finds entry (here). I'm glad I didn't have to wait long for it...looks like a great read.
The Romantics by Galt Niederhoffer
"A wry observer of cultural and social mores, Galt Niederhoffer creates a pitch-perfect group of characters and a winning novel about friendship, class, and love." (book jacket)
Babylon Rolling by Amanda Boyden
"A glittering, gritty, and unflinching story of five families--black, white, and Indian--living along one block of Uptown, New Orleans" (book jacket)
My House on First Street by Julia Reed
Another New Orleans story, this one a memoir. The author also just released another memoir (within two weeks of each other): Ham Biscuits, Hostess Gowns, and Other Southern Specialities, which my mom just passed along to me.
