Lots To Read!

May 2, 2011

My book club decided our next book will be The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald. While at the library reserving a copy, I found two other books to check out, Zoology by Ben Dolnick and The Lady Who Liked Clean Rest Rooms by J.P. Donleavy. Then today a friend IM’d me telling me she’s loving One Day by David Nicholls.

Which book would you start first?

  1. The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald – Henry arrives in the world as a “practice baby,” passed between a dozen young women at the Practice House of Wilton College’s Home Economics program.
  2.  Zoology by Ben Dolnick – Henry Elinsky has flunked out of college, is working for his father, and is clueless about his future.
  3. The Lady Who Liked Clean Rest Rooms by J.P. Donleavy – This stylish novella tells the tale of Jocelyn Guenevere Marchantiere Jones, whose Scarsdale life comes to an abrupt end when her husband leaves her for a younger woman.
  4. One Day by David Nicholls – What are Emma and Dexter doing each year for twenty years on the same day?

    I haven’t read any of these titles, but The Irresistible Henry House sounds really interesting. I added it to my list after I heard an interview with the author on NPR’s All Thing’s Considered. The entire idea sounds both intriguing and controversial, and I’m really interested in seeing if Grunwald’s fictional plot succeeds. Can’t wait to read your review!
