I enjoy a wide variety of fiction styles from historical to bizarre.

A Hundred Suns
by Karin Tanabe

Protagonist Jessie and antagonist Marcelle are dysfunctional women from France resident in Hanoi.

That Old Ace in the Hole
by Annie Proulx

I’ve made enough bad recommendations to the club that I have to forgive whoever recommended this book.

The Plot Against America
by Philip Roth

Philip Roth imagines a presidential campaign and victory by Charles Lindbergh that eerily resembles that of Donald J. Trump.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
by Jamie Ford

This (wait for it . . . ) bittersweet romance happens amidst the evacuation and interment of Japanese citizens at the start of WWII.

Olive Kitteridge
By Elizabeth Strout

The story of Olive is told through 13 well-constructed short stories about other people.
