Jan. 3rd • “Nutshell: A Novel” by Ian McEwan
Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She’s still in the marital home—but John’s not there. Instead, she’s with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy’s womb.
Feb. 7th • “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis” by JD Vance
From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class.
