Lincoln's Selected Writings edited by David S. Reynolds. "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
David S. Reynolds on 'Lincoln's Selected Writings'
I loved this book! It’s about a life of a quintessential American WASP in middle life crisis and it rings so true, fresh, and funny as if written yesterday instead of 1920’s! These people have the sense of American Exceptionalism; fear of foreigners; greed that feeds their creed and vice versa and above all the drive to “keep up with the Jones’” and conform with the mainstream. I listened to the L.A. Theater Works version which probably made the book ten times better! #Babbitt

The Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St.Aubyn are Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope, Mother's Milk and At Last which is the final installment. A contemporary, abjectly dysfunctional family produce a deeply scarred son who struggles through drugs to make sense of the world and relationships. Particularly distressful because it is semi-autobiographical.
