Each of this month’s memoirs is about growing stronger in different ways, even as each writer loses something crucial or someone essential. While they won’t leave a dry eye in the house, they’ll evoke cathartic and redemptive tears.
The memoirs this month are quick, quirky books perfect for reading in a hammock while soaking up some summertime vibes.
Our roster of rabid readers fights winter with a mountain of great books: there’s movies, indigenous populations, deaf superpowers, California girls, Kentucky kids, parted and departed loves, designing women, sex traffickers, and a hot-blooded empress.
