A political memoir, a chronicle of life's hardships, and an enthralling look at a famous case, these 3 books are summer's must-reads.
In her memoir, A Fighting Chance, Senator Elizabeth Warren discusses her tough but loving childhood and her rise to the political top.
Inspired by his love for collecting, BostonCommon freelancer Michael Blanding writes The Map Thief (out May 29, 2014). “When I first read about [E. Forbes] Smiley’s case in the New Yorker back in 2006,” says the author while discussing the book's topic, “it stuck with [me] just how much people pay for these antiquarian maps and how Smiley was able to exploit that market to get rich.”
Sukey Forbes’ touching The Angel in My Pocket (out July 3, 2014), about the loss of her six-year-old daughter to a rare genetic disorder, chronicles her family’s life of privilege and spiritual seeking in relation to the tragedy.
