bookshelves: 2012-read

I mentioned recently on Book Riot that I’m a sucker for epistolary novels. You write a novel in book/journal form and I’m gonna read it. It’s kind of how I cannot resist anything featuring an image of a casette tape on it.

Even if Bernadette Fox’s story weren’t told in emails, articles, and letters gathered together by her teenage daughter after Bernadette disappears, I’d have loved Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple.

See, Bernadette’s a prickly, snooty, artsy-type who doesn’t play well with others. She loves her fifteen-year-old daughter, Bee, and her genius husband, Mircosoft VIP, Elgin. Most everything else annoys the hell out of her, especially the meddling parents at Bee’s neo-Hippie Galer Street School and everything to do with Seattle.
