I am loving Slow Love by Dominique Browning (subheading: how I lost my job, put on my pajamas and found happiness.) This is one part self-help, one part soapy publishing memoir and one-part spiritual quest, and it examines the way so many of us fill our days with work, work and more work-- creating the appearance of success when we are actually digging an unfillable hole. It's not just cozy to hear about an alternative: it's bold and brave and necessary.
I'm deep in the rabbit hole of 20th Century British history, back with another pick from the period: The 2015 book Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill, by Sonia Purnell. Clementine was the ultimate helpmeet to Winston — she supported him both intellectually and emotionally, and until this biography, her influence had been completely overlooked and undervalued by Winston's biographers. Clementine was a complicated, mercurial figure, and Purnell does a wonderful job painting a full picture of a woman who was an excellent wife, a mediocre at best mother, and privy to some of the most profound moments of the modern era.
