°The lnn at Lake Devine" by Elinor Lipman
A punchy little gem of a romantic comedy of manners that l read while finding the
courage to leave the law. Lipman is brilliant with dialogue and characters, and has

an author describe an autopsy on a horse with such effortless grace and lyricism?

°Open" by Andre Agassi °Open" by Andre Agassi

book, dozens of times before we could read. l've read it many times since then.
The magical ending never fails to make me cry, and l still feel like my former
five-year-old self whenever l enter that world.
