Celebrity Picks: Jojo Moyes' Favorite Reads of 2016
Lucia Berlin’s A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected StoriesI don’t normally read short stories, but these clever, melancholic, raw stories by a woman overlooked in her lifetime linger with you long after you’ve finished each one. She is fearless.
Liane Moriarty’s Truly Madly GuiltyMoriarty is another master of the modern messy character. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book of Moriarty’s that I haven’t loved. Wit, drama, and human nature in one beautifully written package.
David Sedaris’s Let’s Explore Diabetes With OwlIf I am in need of a belly laugh, Sedaris is the man. I love that his surreal humor translates in both the US and UK. My husband and I have actually wept with laughter while driving listening to his readings.
