A very rainy week here – nearly everything is dripping! Fortunately, the books remained dry:
Her Fidelity by Katharine Pollock (available 16th August)arrived thanks to Penguin. Kathy has worked at a record store for half her life. Many of her friends have moved on, but Kathy’s stuck in her groove. Should she move forward and how?
Mercury Pictures Presents by Anthony Marra (available tomorrow) was thanks to Hachette. Maria’s Sundays growing up were spent at the cinema instead of church. But she and her mother must flee Italy for Los Angeles. Later she becomes an associate producer but when war arrives, she needs to confront her father’s past.
COVID by Numbers: Making Sense of the Pandemic with Data by David Spiegelhalter and Anthony Masters is about COVID and data. It looks at misconceptions of COVID and the vaccines and the effects of COVID on the wider community.
The Little Wartime Library by Kate Thompson is set in World War II London where Clara is the librarian for the underground library in a disused Tube station. It’s an escape for many, but as the war continues, things get more difficult.
