City of Light by Lauren Belfer, another great pick from Joan Nagy for May. "I was completely unaware of Buffalo's history! Excellent storytelling and fascinating social commentary on America as it roared into the century.
A British medical doctor fights a cholera outbreak in a small Chinese village, while also being trapped at home in a loveless marriage to an unfaithful wife.) Director: John Curran Stars: Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Catherine An
E.M. Forster: Three Complete Novels: Howards End, A Room With a View, Where Angels Fear to Tread (I finally finished the third and final in this volume, Where Angels Fear to Tread. It was my second favorite, I think, after A Room With a View. I like Forster and would recommend these if you're looking for a lighter classic.) (2013)
