Top Ten Tuesday: Nonfiction Books I’ve Read With Super Long Book Titles


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.


50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple’s Extraordinary Rescue Mission into the Heart of Nazi Germany by Steven Pressman My review is here.


She Got Up Off the Couch: And Other Heroic Acts from Mooreland, Indiana by Haven Kimmel.


The Ghost Map: The Story of London’s Most Terrifying Epidemic–and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World by Steven Johnson. My review is here.


My Faraway Home: An American Family’s WWII Tale of Adventure and Survival in the Jungles of the Philippines by Mary McKay Maynard. My review is here.


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).
