Rise and Shine — Anna Quindlen
I love this woman’s writing. I want to be her.
I’ve read all Quindlen’s novels and have never been disappointed.
Note the following subject matter covered in this latest one:
New York City (great setting).
Two sisters (I can relate).
The elite world of network television (a talk show) and N. Y. society (fascinating).
Life in the lower economic tier of the city (the projects, the homeless – again, fascinating).
Love, marriage, wealth, poverty, ambition, social mores, divorce, tragedy…
All the above plus marvelous characters and written with humour and compassion. Quindlen manages to engage the reader throughout the entire book. It flows — it all adds up to a fantastic read.
I’m not giving away any of the plot. Just check the link for a brief summary. Trust me on this one. (And I know some of you do from emails I’ve received.)
Rise and Shine is one of those novels that has you announcing to your family, “I think I’ll head up to bed a little earlier tonight…(so I can get back to my book).”
