    It’s 1893, and at the Chicago World’s Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows, which he hopes will honor his family business and earn him a place on the international artistic stage. But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll. Publicly unrecognized by Tiffany, Clara conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which he is long remembered.

    The intriguing story and wonderful narration combine in this riveting novel. I really enjoyed the history about the Tiffany stained glass production and the real life character Clara. I highly recommend this!

    In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America, from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

    Story

    Great for a summer read or an any time read that will take you 'on vacation' as Steinbeck travels the US with his standard poodle 'Charley'. An intimate look at the US through the eyes of all who encounter Steinbeck and 'Charley' as he gets reacquainted with the US.
