This collection is definitely not his best work and way too dark for my taste. I didn't even finish about a third of the essays because I just couldn't bear to keep reading. Included here are a handful of fictional narratives from someone else's point of view, and I hated every one. (Soooo dark. No thanks.) In my mind, nothing since Me Talk Pretty One Day has been half as funny. Worth Reading, David Sedaris, Books Worth, Reading List, Davidsedaris, Owls

I’ll be the first to admit it; I did not want to read this book. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty screams women’s fiction and, frankly, I’ve not been in the mood lately.

All That Is by James Salter. Salter’s first novel in more than 30 years, which follows the loves and losses of a World War II veteran, is an ambitious departure from his previous work and, at a stroke, demolishes any talk of twilight.
A literary event--a major new novel, his first work of fiction in seven years, from the universally acclaimed master and PEN/Faulkner winner: a sweeping, seductive love story set in post-World War II America that tells of one man's great passions and regrets over the course of his lifetime.
'All That Is' by James Salter: Returning to America after World War II, former naval officer Philip Bowman finds a position as a book editor and loses himself in a world of intimate connections and surprising triumphs until he is betrayed by the woman he loves, which sets him on a course he could never have imagined for himself.
All That Is - for pre-order on BN.com. Bret Ellis gives his praise, "The new James Salter novel 'All That Is' contains the most beautiful prose I've read in years. He's maybe the last great American stylist..." That's a recommendation for a book to read that I will take. While on the subject of Bret, check out his books as well as those of his classmate, Donna Tartt. Literary Geniuses. Oh, and her much-anticipated third book is coming this Fall...:) !!!
All That Is by James Salter. Salter’s first novel in 34 years was hotly anticipated, and for good reason: it is gobsmackingly excellent. Salter presents Philip Bowman, a World War II vet turned book editor, as he navigates love, loss, and the constantly changing culture of 20th-century America. All of the Salter trademarks are here: gorgeous prose, elegantly written sex scenes (Salter’s sex writing is singular in contemporary lit fic), fully realized peripheral characters, evocative settings.

Well written, just like Hosseini's previous two books and heartbreaking, just like Hosseini's previous two books. Worth reading? Only if you're a die-hard fan. What started off as a beautifully written and fantastic beginning to a promising story, ended in a complete dud. The main characters are lost within a complex tie of seemingly unnecessary stories. Disappointed.

Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh: A mother of five, an acclaimed writer and a pioneering aviator, Lindbergh casts an unsentimental eye on the trappings of modernity that threaten to overwhelm us: the time-saving gadgets that complicate rather than simplify, the multiple commitments that take us from our families. And by recording her thoughts during a brief escape from everyday demands, she helps readers find a space for contemplation and creativity within their own lives.

"Shut Up, You're Welcome" paints a revealing portrait of Annie and her family in all their quirky, compelling, riotous glory. Each of Choi's personal essays begins with an open letter to someone (her naked neighbor) or something (the San Fernando Valley), that she has a beef with. From the time her family ditched her on Christmas to her father's attachment to an ugly table, Choi weaves together deeply personal experiences with laugh-out-loud observations, all of which will charm & entertain you.
