Books in our Queue to Read this Winter
We are excited to have bumped into Dani Shapiro and her new book, Inheritance. Inheritance is a book about secrets–secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity.
In this happy but interesting psychological view of How to Be a Good Creature, it takes you on a journey of how we can learn to be our best selves from the animals we share this wonderful planet with. The book explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.
