Lately there’s been a lot of Vonnegut available at unbelievable prices. “Slapstick” is a little ‘unstructured’ but is an interesting read. It is supposedly pretty biographical. It’s the story of twins who are very ‘in sync’ (not like Justin Timberlake) in feelings and communication, relating to Vonnegut’s own relationship with his sister, who died of cancer in childhood. $1.99.
“Descent” is a memoir by the author of “Snow Falling On Cedars” (which, if you have not read, you should), telling the story of his descent into depression following 9/11, and his slow ascent back to his family, friends and writing. $2.99.
I have not read this one yet, but I bought it when it was a little more expensive than this price. It looks very good. “The Sisterhood” is the story of a child adopted after a tragedy in South America and raised in the US by a good family. At age 19, on track to have it all, another tragedy derails her. She travels to Spain to finish her college thesis on a 16th century artist who has connections with her past. $3.99.
A wonderful children’s book by Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman from cookbook and Food Network fame. Charlie, The Ranch Dog is very cute, very loveable, and a favorite of my younger daughter. $1.99.
