I read Straight Man by Richard Russo. It's pretty good and funny.
I don't recommend this book. It's rare that I will list a book I don't recommend because I usually quit reading a book if I don't like it, but this book was intriguing and well-written so I kept with it until the end. I can't say I came out of the experience unscathed, however. It's extremely violent. It's about sadism. Rated R for sure. It's horrifying.
I needed some lighter fare after that so I read The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jaqueline Kelly.
This is a wonderful book and I totally recommend it. It is delightful. June ended on a high note because of this book. It's like Little House on the Prairie plus Little Women plus evolutionary science. You'll find it with the kids' fiction in the library. I should probably get all my books there.
