On this edition of The Weekly Reader our book critic Marion Winik reviews the winners of this year's Booker Prize for Fiction, Bernadine Evaristo's Girl, Woman, Other, and Margaret Atwood's The Testaments.
Since news of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal broke in 2017, the phrase "Me Too" has become standard shorthand for inappropriate sexual behavior. On this edition of The Weekly Reader, we review Mary Gaitskills' This Is Pleasure, a new novel with a decidedly "fresh" take on the issue.
On this edition of The Weekly Reader, we celebrate the return of one of literature's most memorable recent characters, Olive Kitteridge. Book critic Marion Winik reviews Elizabeth Strout's Olive, Again.
On this edition of The Weekly Reader, we review the next selection for The Weekly Reader Book Club, Susan Orlean's The Library Book. It's part investigative journalism, part memoir, and part love letter to libraries, books, and the power of the written word.
