If you loved A Good American then The Paris Hours by Alex George is a must read. So grab a bottle of your best French red (An inexpensive bottle usually works for me!) sit back and chart the intersection of the lives of these painters, writers, musicians, art dealers and immigrants as they lived life in early 1900’s Paris. Appearances by Marcel Proust, Josephine Baker, Gertrude Stein and others add to this unforgettable story of love and loss.

And this aardvark has many more lives than any cat I’ve ever known. From Victorian England to present-day Washington, DC,  you are going to be on the edge of your seat with every twist and turn of this totally original tale. AA rated!

American Dirt is an important book! It is impossible to not feel empathy for Lydia and Luca ... all migrants and refugees. American Dirt does for U.S. immigration what The Kite Runner did for the atrocities in Afghanistan. I have been telling everyone about it. Thank you Jeanine Cummins!
