‘The Magician’s Land,’ by Lev Grossman
Completed January 26th (finally) on the plane to Brisbane. I've been staggering through this one over a period of six months or so, as JSF's style doesn't lend itself to easy reading (at least not the way my brain processes stuff...!). It was interesting, but I felt like it lacked a proper conclusion.

'The Ladies Auxiliary' by Tova Mirvis: A traditional Jewish community in Memphis, Tennessee, is given a jolt with the arrival of a new art teacher from New York.
The Ladies Auxiliary Tova Mirvis: Books
When I recommend fiction, this is one of the first titles that comes to mind. Set in the Orthodox Jewish community of Memphis, it is the women of the community who narrate the story. This book is a great read for a book club!
