MY SUMMER READING LIST

 The volumes I have consumed and still plan to absorb are varied. Some are library books, some are borrowed and some are Amazon.com (Internet) purchases.

I just completed Thrity Umrigar’s novel, The Space Between Us. It’s a hauntingly poignant, beautifully written account of two women in India. One is a servant from the lower class and the other is a social elite who employs her. It’s fiction in that the people are made up, but a true account of the human condition. I love it because the protagonist is the type of person who is often invisible — an uneducated, older, female domestic servant. (Continued on the next page.)

Blink is a non-fiction and by Malcolm Gladwell. Decisions made in less than a blink of an eye can be deeply profound or profoundly erroneous. It’s interesting research. I just started All the Devils Are Here. It’s another non-fiction, and about the financial crisis that is currently infecting our economy.

Books on order are Falling Upward by Richard Rohr and Nature and the Human Soul

by Bill Plotkin.
