A Memoir Of Memory, Mental Illness And Trauma

The Memory Palace by Mira Bartok. A hauntingly beautiful book about a girl raised by a schizophrenic mother. Highly recommended.

Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. Follow-up of sorts to The Glass Castle, tells her grandmother's life story

Books that are really engaging, but easy to read.

What should I read next? A reader asks for books that are really engaging, but not terribly difficult, because she's on hospital bed rest and her concentration is shot. These books (a few novels, memoirs, and interesting nonfiction picks) are highly entertaining but not too mentally taxing. She's also a Francophile, and we take that into account. Happy reading!
