Three New Books This Week That We Like
A fantastic debut – moving and smart. The story of an institution for the disabled in Chicago, told first-person by its staff and residents. Each character's voice is fully realized, and without a hint of sentimentality or sugar, Nussbaum gives power and flaw to every one. Not every character is likable, but none are forgettable.
“The Mary Tyler Moore Show” began airing in 1970, but its DNA is still all over TV - It's the progenitor of every comedy starring a woman, single, working or otherwise, but also every workplace sitcom, every friends-as-family sitcom, and every sitcom aimed squarely at adults. This engaging, instantly likable history tells the story of the quiet revolution brought on by the entire team behind the show - including writers, executives, and stars. I read it as eagerly as I've read anything in months
This made my heart ache, and sing, usually at the same time. John Green said "it reminds me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but to be young and in love with a book." And he's right. Just lovely.
