The Best Books to Read This May, as originally published in Town & Country:
Four standout new releases of the month—and one old favorite to revisit.
This month, dive into an unexpected literary novel, enjoy a heartbreaking memoir, pour over a book as lovely as any garden, and revisit a classic heading for the silver screen.
This first memoir from bestselling novelist Allison Pataki is both harrowing and inspiring. It begins when Pataki and her husband are on route to a vacation and he suffers a stroke and then follows the couple and their newborn child through the difficult days and months after as they attempt to rebuild their lives and discover what it means to be a family.
