Get ready to take the day off from work tomorrow because Hosseini's new novel, And the Mountains Echoed, is coming out and, believe me, once you start it, you're not going to want to do anything but read.
Mrs Thatcher came to realize that Reagan's strengths and mental abilities were very different from her own, but she never lost her underlying admiration for him.
They say that those who fight the hardest are those who are the most alike, so perhaps it shouldn't have surprised me that when it comes to parenting, the English and the French have quite a bit in common.
I see a service in bringing information about this subject to the thriller-reading public. We can learn about new discoveries and science in our thriller plots. But in this case of Dan Brown's scenario, why pin a global pandemic on a legitimate organization? Reality is scary enough.
Coyne's book is a careful, detailed, academic answer to the real-world question surrounding U.S. reconstruction efforts: How is it possible that well-funded, expertly staffed and, at least rhetorically, well-intentioned humanitarian actions fail, often serially, as in Afghanistan?
The "crazy" Zelda that has emerged in our popular imagination is as much Scott's making as The Great Gatsby itself. This is, in and of itself, part of the F. Scott legacy. His work depended on Zelda's silence.
At the heart of every authentic call to ministry is the desire to live a life of integrity. It was my desire to live a life of integrity that led me to the priesthood and it is that same desire that has led me to where I am today.
My Name is Val and I'm a rock-star-memoir addict. It all started with Philip Norman's seminal biography of The Beatles, Shout.
Eleven Madison Park's new cookbook I Love New York highlights the best of what local food producers offer at their restaurant.
In coming to a greater understanding of Christian masculinity, I am calling us to introspect and to adopt more fitting approach -- one that bears the fruit of Scripture's high calling, "reconciling the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers."
There is no death by Dior if we talk about art, there is only life by Dior. And in this book that so remorselessly brings to light long-ago misdeeds, there is something of a reminder how great art outlasts the residue of pain.
What is it like to finish a novel? The first time you do it, you feel utter euphoria, and you should. Unfortunately, what follows isn't always instant acceptance by an agent, an editor, or even your beta readers and friends.
"What!" I exclaimed. "But you can't be Gatsby. He's dead!" "I assure you," the stranger insisted, removing his false beard and mustache, "I'm alive."
Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of the summer season. With that in mind, Thin Reads has published the world's first guide to the top e-book singles for the summer. Here's what we looked for.
Making those decisions in a vacuum is never a good idea -- it's too easy to waste time when you should have spent money or throw away money when a little time and effort would have done far more good. Hopefully this has helped you to approach these decisions a bit better prepared.
Everyone has a favorite book. I read The Best and the Brightest by David Halberstam over and over again, at least once a year. Sometimes, I will pick it up to touch and feel it, reading just a page or two, knowing by heart whole sections.
The largest antiwar movement ever to protest a war that had yet to happen had just packed its tents and gone home in despair, while George W. Bush and his top officials were in their “mission accomplished” triumphalist mode.
Barbara Taylor Bradford is the epitome of class. From the moment she starts speaking you feel as if you're with royalty, which isn't a stretch since she was born in England and was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II for her contributions to literature.
Many yoga teachers seem to be afraid of imparting all of their knowledge. Kino MacGregor does the opposite, proving both her teaching ability and business savvy by explaining everything in as much detail as possible.
