Holiday Reading

Do members of the forum have any suggestions for this year’s holiday reading?

I would mention “Renoir, My Father” (Jean Renoir the film director, son of Pierre Auguste Renoir – that’s what you call a talented family!); and “First Confession” (Chris Patten): memoirs, one contemporary and one older, both excellent reads, I thought.

Either “And the Weak Suffer What They Must” or “Adults in the Room” by Yanis Varoufakis.

I never tire of reading Margery Allingham’s “More Work for the Undertaker”, it is holiday reading at its best.

I just thoroughly enjoyed the “My Brilliant Friend” quartet by Elena Ferrante.

“A Little Life” by Hanya Yanagihara – a long, but engaging and moving story.
