I'm reading The Whites by Harry Brandt and liking it so much that I'm going to do a video review.
Another new title, debut author Anne Flett-Giordano's Marry Kiss Kill, it screams 'beach read' in a really good way comes out in June. If Raymond Chandler and Chelsea Handler had a love child (fictionally speaking) it would be this book, good news is that Anne is hard at work on another, in between her TV writing (she has written for Frasier and Hot in Cleveland)
Another one to look out for is Brian Grazer's A Curious Mind, dropping in April. Grazer has been having what he calls 'curiosity conversations' (usually an hour long) with people ranging from Jim Lovell to former secretary of State Condeleeza Rice for years now. Pretty much since he entered the movie business; as a legal clerk delivering papers for Warner Brothers. And while a talk with Jim Lovell might have led to Apollo 13 becoming a movie it also was inspired by talks Grazer had with many others including Veronica De Negri, a Chilean political prisoner whose incredible inner strength enabled her to survive unspeakable challenges.
These talks do not always go in the direction Grazer thinks they are going to, the ones with Isaac Asimov and Edward Teller would be prime examples. You might think Grazer does this because he's well Brian Grazer movie producer but the truth is he's never not been curious. That curiosity, he feels is being bred out of our youth and this is his way of encouraging us to become curious all over again. If I were graduating this year I'd be intrigued and fascinated by this book.
