We may, finally, be leaving the era of novels with titles that go like this: The Something-something life of somebody-somebody. I could possibly populate the entire list with such titles. Instead I’m listing the nonfiction books I’ve enjoyed that have longer-than-normal titles.
The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra by Helen Rappaport. My review is here.
Hippie Food: How Back-to-the-Landers, Longhairs, and Revolutionaries Changed the Way We Eat by Jonathon Kauffman, My review is here.
The Man Who Made the Beatles: An Intimate Biography of Brian Epstein by Ray Coleman. I took this book with me to Peace Corps service in August 1989. It was my contribution to the Peace Corps Malawi library that went from backpack to backpack, secondary school to government ministry.
My Twenty-Five Years in Provence: Reflections on Then and Now by Peter Mayle, My review is here.
The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan. My review is here (scroll down to the second review).
Autumn in Venice: Ernest Hemingway and His Last Muse by Andrea di Robilant. My review is here.
