Staff Reads – 11-8


Check out what we’ve been reading lately and let us know your book recommendations in the comments below!

I just finished Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane. It’s a multigenerational portrait of two suburban families marked by love, grief, and forgiveness. I haven’t stopped thinking about this book since I put it down; it’s really literary fiction at its finest. —Jen DePoorter, marketing coordinator

I just finished reading The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker—part science fiction, but mostly about how relationships are affected by sudden loss and trauma. Her books are that perfect combination of the unbelievable and the deeply personal. It’s going to stick with me for a long time—what if there IS a highly contagious disease where everyone falls into deep, dream-riddled sleep? I’d also highly recommend her first novel, The Age of Miracles. —Alisse Goldsmith-Wissman, publicity manager

I’m currently reading Brief Answers to the Big Questions by Stephen Hawking. It’s been incredibly thought-provoking, and somehow makes you feel significant, even while making you feel very small in the scope of things. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do a little existential reflection.  —Alex Granato, editorial and subrights associate

I just finished Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, the perfect read for this time of the year. Now I’m off to watch the movie! —Emily Lewis, marketing associate

I’m reading Daisy Jones & The Six. It’s a good change of pace because the whole book is written in the form of interviews with the band and other people involved in their lives, except it’s fiction! The author does a great job of really embodying all the different characters and bringing them to life through their own voices. —Sadie Teper, associate designer
