Bright, Precious Days
Bright, Precious Days by Jay McInerney (Other Fiction)
Very entertaining novel about a book editor and his family living slightly beyond their means in Manhattan during mid 2000s. I listened to the audio version anx the reader did a really excellent job of adapting his voice to the various characters. I believe this book is the third in a trilogy and I wish I had read the previous two. -- Added by Barken on 02/01/2017

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett (Other Fiction)
" Commonwealth" tells the story of two families that become bonded/ detached from one another when the father of one falls in love with the mother of the other. From the 60s to the present, the 6 children move in and out of each other's lives. I really enjoyed this book and felt the relevance of it in today's world of so many blended families. At times though, I almost needed a cheat sheet to remind me of which children belonged to which sets of parents. -- Added by Barken on 01/09/2017
