Things in Jars by Jess Kidd : In the autumn of Bridie Devine, female detective extraordinaire, is tasked with finding the six-year-old daughter of a baronet.
Kidd paints a convincingly stark picture of Dickensian London, focusing on an underworld of criminals and circus freaks.
Surgery before and after anesthesia and mythology mermaids and selkies are intriguing subplots woven through. Set in the early s and focusing on the Great Exhibition and Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, this also reveals the everyday world of poor Londoners. If some characters seem to fit neatly into stereotypes fallen woman, rake, etc. A terrific debut full of panache and promise. The tone is wonderfully balanced: there are plenty of hilarious, somewhat raunchy scenes, but also a lot of heartfelt moments as Lois learns that a doctor is never completely off duty and you have no idea what medical or personal challenge will crop up next.
Gleeson ranges from the seemingly trivial to life-and-death matters as she writes about hairstyles, blood types, pregnancy, the abortion debate in Ireland and having a rare type of leukemia.
My Shopping Bag
Visceral details of sights, smells and feelings put you right there in the delivery room. Mother Ship by Francesca Segal : A visceral diary of the first eight weeks in the lives of her daughters, who were born by Caesarean section at 29 weeks in October and spent the next two months in the NICU.
As well as portraying her own state of mind, Segal crafts twinkly pen portraits of the others she encountered in the NICU, including the staff but especially her fellow preemie mums. Female friendship is thus a subsidiary theme in this exploration of desperate love and helplessness.
Thousandfold by Nina Bogin : This is a lovely collection whose poems devote equal time to interactions with nature and encounters with friends and family. Birds — along with their eggs and feathers — are a frequent presence. Often a particular object will serve as a totem as the poet remembers the most important people in her life.
Elsewhere Bogin greets a new granddaughter and gives thanks for the comforting presence of her cat. Gentle rhymes and half-rhymes lend a playful or incantatory nature. I recommend it to fans of Linda Pastan.

The three 4. Faces in the Water by Janet Frame. Priestdaddy: A Memoir by Patricia Lockwood. It was much hotter than anticipated, including some days in the high 80s or even 90s, and the hayfever, ticks and mosquitoes were bad, too, but we survived. After being on the market for nearly a year, my family home finally sold and went to closing while we were over there. And I also acquired more books, of course! My only purchases were new remainder copies of one novel and one memoir from Dollar Tree. But the book I was most smug to have on my reading list for the trip was the recent novel Cape May by Chip Cheek.
What could be more perfect for reading on location? I asked myself.

Unfortunately, it stood out for the wrong reasons. Effie and Henry join the others for nightly drunken revelry. Despite the strength of the period atmosphere and seaside location, this ends up being dull and dated. Alas, Vineland is an utterly boring small American town. However, Mary Treat at least appears on a painted mural on a building on the main street.
The Historical Society, where Kingsolver did her research, was closed, but we photographed the outside. Here are some of the ones that I have on the go as occasional reading:. Paul, Minnesota as the daughter of an Irish Catholic library clerk and a Czech florist. This is a pleasant set of short pieces about what you might see and sense in your garden month by month. I especially like the wood engravings by Yvonne Skargon that head each chapter.
It is a temptation to be anthropomorphic about plants, to suspect that they do it to annoy.
e-book Anthropologies: A Family Memoir (Sightline Books)
Hijinks were promised as the rest of the put-out staff descend on Honiton, but by nearly the two-thirds point it all still felt like preamble, laying out the characters and their backstories, connections and motivations. They had only been married a year and here she is, aged twenty-one and a widow. Joan Scudamore, traveling back to London from Baghdad after a visit to her adult daughter, encounters bad weather and misses her train, which leaves her stranded in the desert for days that feel more like weeks.
This is a short and immersive book, and a cautionary tale to boot.
