Nantucket Bookworm this week is Annye Camara, owner of health store Annye’s Whole Foods and member of the Nantucket Book Festival.
Just finished Craig Johnson’s newest novel, AN OBVIOUS FACT. Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear are fast friends, serious moralists, and kickass lawmen! It’s always rewarding to read one of Johnson’s novels.
Favorite Nantucket book–Nat Philbrick’s AWAY OFFSHORE
Favorite Nonfiction–MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING, by Viktor Frankl, is my evergreen favorite nonfiction.
TRIBE by Sebastian Junger is hard to beat and it is my newest nonfiction favorite.
Best book SO FAR in 2016 is Louise Penny’s A GREAT RECKONING, her best yet, with the
wonderful Armand Gamache.
Favorite Mystery: DAUGHTER OF TIME by Josephine Tey
Favorite book(s) as a child–THE GOLDEN GUIDE TO BIRDS FOR CHILDREN, GRAPES OF WRATH,
and THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD.
Favorite authors–Anthony Marra, of late, because his novel, THE CONSTELLATION OF VITAL PHENOMENA is the
best book I’ve read in 3 decades, and always John Steinbeck.
Favorite Cookbook–THE FISH AND VEGETABLE COOKBOOK by Marian Morash
Favorite Poet–Pablo Neruda
