Bargain Books for a Cool Summer Reading

One hardly has enough time to keep up with all the best selling books. Sometimes, we only get to read a book a year or two after it was published. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – older books sell for less than new ones, and bargains are easier to find. Here are some best sellers that are being offered in great prices.

The Postmistress – Single, 40-year-old postmistress Iris James and young newlywed Emma Trask are both new arrivals to Franklin, Mass., on Cape Cod. While Iris and Emma go about their daily lives, they follow American reporter Frankie Bard on the radio as she delivers powerful and personal accounts from the London Blitz and elsewhere in Europe. While Trask waits for the return of her husband—a volunteer doctor stationed in England—James comes across a letter with valuable information that she chooses to hide. Blake captures two different worlds—a naïve nation in denial and, across the ocean, a continent wracked with terror—with a deft sense of character and plot, and a perfect willingness to take on big, complex questions, such as the merits of truth and truth-telling in wartime.

The Lacuna: A Novel – The Lacuna contains two very distinct parts. One features a vibrant Mexican landscape with the equally colorful personalities of Rivera, Kahlo, and Trotsky. The other centers more on Harrison’s reclusive existence in small-town America and his battle with the House Un-American Activities Committee. Despite the prodigious research that both parts exhibit, critics clearly preferred the former, marveling at Kingsolver’s lyrical passages and her expert recreation of 1930s Mexico. A few reviewers also noted instances of sermonizing and inaccurate history. However, the novel’s compelling, engrossing story certainly outweighed these minor complaints, and in the end, Kingsolver has created a convincing “tableau vivant of epochs and people that time has transformed almost past recognition”.
