Reading Roundup: August 2011

As always, an eclectic selection of good reads this month.

  • Crazy For God:  How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost all) of it Back by Frank Schaeffer-  An interesting look at the Francis Schaeffer from the perspective of his son.
  • Other:  Loving Self, God, and Neighbour in a World of Fractures by Kester Brewin
  • The Doper Next Door:  My Strange and Scandalous Year on Performance-Enhancing Drugs by Andrew Tilin
  • High Strung:  Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, and the Last Days of Tennis’ Golden Age by Stephen Tignor
  • Alfred Hithcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello
  • The Man in the Rockefeller Suit:  The Astonishing Rise and Spectacular Fall of a Serial Imposter by Mark Seal- Amazing to see how he could pull this off for years.
  • The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino- A great Japanese crime novel.  The crime is described in the first few pages and the rest of the book is about the cover-up.  “They certainly had no idea what they had done, but that was okay.  Sometimes, all you had to do was exist to be someone’s savior.”
