    What do you do? Whenever people asked him, Eric Cash used to have a dozen answers. Artist, actor, screenwriter...But now he's 35 years old and he's still living downtown, still in the restaurant business, working night shifts and serving the people he always wanted to be. What does Eric do? He manages.

    Laura L. Graumann says: "A wonderful listen"

    Overall

    This is an amazing read. Bobby Canavale takes this book and runs with it. If you like Law and Order, you'll like this book.
    I listen to books while I walk, and this one kept me walking for 6 miles!
    Enjoy.

    Mildred Pierce had gorgeous legs, a way with a skillet, and a bone-deep core of toughness and determination. She used those attributes to survive a divorce in 1940s America with two children and to claw her way out of poverty, becoming a successful businesswoman. But Mildred also had two weaknesses: a yen for shiftless men and an unreasoning devotion to her monstrous daughter.

    P. Giorgio says: "Mildred -- you pierce my heart"
    "Wow"
    Overall

    This is a fabulous book and the narration is wonderful. Mildred is something else indeed, and not necessarily the Joan Crawford version. Having seen the movie for years, and not having read the book, it was interesting how Mildred came into her own in this book and the Joan Crawford Mildred faded away quickly in my mind.

    Set against the gorgeous backdrop of Rome, Tom Rachman’s wry, vibrant debut follows the topsy-turvy private lives of the reporters, editors, and executives of an international English-language newspaper as they struggle to keep it - and themselves - afloat. This hilarious and poignant look at the struggles of print news will establish Rachman as one of the 21st century’s most perceptive talents.

    Debra says: "love it"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    A great debut by an author with a great sense of humor. Worth your time.
