IN NOVEMBER …

 

[LINKED TO A PODCAST]

Of Tunnel 29: The True Story of an Extraordinary Escape Beneath the Berlin Wall by Helena Merriman, Helen of Helen’s Book Blog writes “I’d heard good things about this story of triumph, survival, and heroism so was looking forward to reading it and I was not disappointed. Merriman writes a good narrative nonfiction story that absorbs the reader from page one.”

[SOCIAL HISTORY]

A recommendation of City of Nets: A Portrait of Hollywood in the 1940’s by Otto Friedrich from a friend paid off for Maphead, “After experiencing City of Nets’ impressive scope and depth I suspect it’s probably the best book out there when comes to the history of early Hollywood. Well-written and insanely well-researched it’s hard to offer up a comprehensive recap of what the book covers, harder still to do so concisely.”

[WILD ANIMALS]

I loved The Unexpected Truth About Animals by Lucy Cooke, “Written with an irreverence tempered by passion, Cooke exposes the secrets of thirteen well known animals, drawing from historical sources, current research, and her own knowledge and experience. Witty, informative and utterly fascinating, The Unexpected Truths About Animals is an engrossing read.” Read my review at Book’d Out here.

[PUBLISHED IN 2022]

“This is an eye-opening read about the dangers of scientology.” Laura of Reading Books Again says of A Billion Years: My escape from a life in the highest ranks of Scientology by Mike Rinder.

[CELEBRITY]

Writes Sue at Book by Book about These Precious Days by Ann Patchett, “I loved every moment of this book! The essays are each very different, yet linked together in a way that paints a picture of Ann and her life, and the people she loves. This wonderfully-written collection of essays is moving, funny, heartfelt, and powerful. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

    This is a very diverse selection of non-fiction books! The Scientology one has me curious mostly because I don’t think i’ve ever read something so personal and it.

    Thank you for including Tunnel 29 in your list this month, it was super interesting. The scientology and your animal book also look really good.
