This is such a beautiful book of essays, a little memoir, a lot musing, on fertility and infertility and all the ways of becoming or not becoming a parent. I’m no longer in this particular waiting game (I expend my energies, once again, on trying NOT ...more

I loved this book so much. The whole story takes place in a single day, but it encompasses a marriage, a childhood, half a lifetime, all conveyed in wonderful prose amidst this sort of madcap tragic adventure as the main character tries to figure out ...more

I’m maybe just not the best reviewer of serious literary fiction. We were fully 150 pages into the book before any character had even a glimmer of hope or a positive thought, and by the end I was glad so see any of them at least find a little togethe ...more

Who doesn’t love an inside look at a glamorous world we’ll never be a part of, especially when it’s not so glam after all? The author of “The Devil Wears Prada” clearly had a great time researching the grand slam tennis scene, and I had a good time r ...more

A delightful romance that’s really four romances rolled into one, with enough mild suspense and intriguing characters to keep it interesting, but really deeply cozy, a book that offers the conviction from the very beginning that everything is going t ...more

Probably my favorite recent read. I’m not sure why I picked it up—a male protagonist in pre-revolutionary war New York City wouldn’t normally be my go-to—but it’s incredible historical fiction, with a great story, a lot of fascinating detail and a my ...more

I wholeheartedly enjoyed this story of 3 sisters raised by a fiercely independent mother finding out that some of the things she always taught them weren’t entirely true in the real world, while some of the most unlikely were truth. A fun read.

A fun follow up to one of my favorite essay collections of all time, The Bitch in the House. Many essays were more follow up than essay, but that’s easily forgiven in a book that brings back stories from so many good writers as well as a few non-prof ...more

More of K.j.'s books…
“A book--a real book--is one choice, taken from a pile, opened and entered as its own singular, separate world. Once chosen, you are not holding the constant opportunity to alter or improve your choice, or simply change it just for the sake of restless change. You are there, now, without the relentless pressure of the fact that you could always be, and maybe you should be, maybe you’d be happier or more productive or different, doing something else. It's a choice I hope my kids will decide to make, often.”
