NormalAttempting Normal by Marc Maron PN2287.M515A3 NHC
 I love Marc Maron’s podcast WTF, so I was biased when I read this book. I could hear him speaking the words as I scanned the pages. If I didn’t have this reference, I might think this book was an exercise in self-absorption. But, Maron’s writing portrays human vulnerabilities and the sides of our personalities we usually try to hide, with a humor that is unique, talented, and honest. Whether it’s naval gazing or not, I liked exploring this belly button. ~ Cynthia

DemonologyDemonology by Rick Moody  PS3563.O5537D45 Main
A collection of thirteen short stories by the author of The Ice Storm. Tight, concise vignettes of people’s lives and what become highlights, whether good or bad. I skipped a couple stories, which did not appeal, but those I read, I liked, especially “The Mansion on the Hill” and “Carousel.” Other books by Moody in the HCC Library are Garden State and The Black Veil: A Memoir with Digression. ~ Cynthia

LuckyUsLucky Us by Amy Bloom
This book was full of human foibles, but the most resonant theme was that families are created by attention and attitudes and not necessarily by blood. The setting is the 1940’s. The story includes homosexulity, the WWII, Hollywood moralilty, and what people do to create improvised homes. The writing of Amy Bloom is perceptive and keen, with humor and originality. All the book’s chapters are named for vintage song titles. I think the author is saying, life is tough but there is always something to sing about. ~ Cynthia
