I have been drafting blog posts for About Books for more than eight years. During that time, I’ve searched for the best lists from authors, readers and others in a wide variety of genres and shared their recommendations. Now that I am about to retire, I thought I would share with you my favorite authors and recent books that I hope to immediately read in my expanded leisure hours. There will be many, many others.
Dear Life: Stories by Alice MunroThe Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
