Marilyn D. Berkman
Title: A Marker to Measure Drift
Author: Alexander Maksik
“It captures a woman at most elemental desire to survive, spare, poetic, human.”
Author: Rita Golden Gelman
Publisher: Broadway Books
“A creative journey of exploration of self and people from varied cultures.”
Pnina Moed Kass
Author: Ian McEwan
“This book didn’t see daylight in 2013 but for all my unknown writer friends this reading experience is shattering, profound, intellectual, a narrative masterpiece that balances what seems like unattainable happiness with visceral violence.”
Title: Life After Life
Author: Kate Atkinson
Publisher: Reagan Arthur Books
“It’s a historical fiction novel set in England during the early 1900’s through WWII about a woman who dies and comes back to life many times (hence Life After Life). The book was such an emotional roller coaster, but I enjoyed it because it gave me a chance to examine how tiny decisions can make a big impact on one’s life.”
Author: Robert Moss
Publisher: New World Library
“I’d say The Three “Only” Things: Tapping the power of dreams, coincidence & Imagination was one of my favorites. It’s by Robert Moss and he does an excellent job weaving inspiration with practical exercises and interesting science in how writers can harness the rich content of dreams.”
