Mary Ann’s November Recommendation

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

“All summer I kept seeing this novel pop up in lists of recommended books. Now I see why.  Scenes shift back and forth from 1962 Italy where Cleopatra (the one with Richard Burton and Liz Taylor) is being filmed to modern Hollywood to Edinburgh.  There are poignant and very funny events.  It’s easy to follow the changes of scene. You will quickly get interested in how the characters’ lives play out and how they intersect.”
