The Lowland, by Jhumpa Lahiri. I liked this book. It's the story of two brothers from India. I hate reviews that tell you too much about the plot, so I won't. I'll just say that it's about difficult choices, decisions that impact others and last a lifetime. It's also about family. It's well-written, and I'd recommend it.
Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream, by Neil Young. Yes, I know...another memoir by a music icon. What can I say? Musicians fascinate me. Neil Young is pretty cool, and reading this book is like hanging out with him and talking over several drinks. Even though he doesn't drink any more. The book is all over the place - it's not in any kind of order, time or otherwise - and yet it works. He writes as I imagine he talks. He's led a pretty interesting life, and he is so passionate about his interests that it's fun to read.
