Emma shares the next round of gift suggestions from the Viking/Penguin publicity department!
A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy by Sarah Lazarovic:
My sister is an art student who loves clothes, so A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy is perfect for her—I’m hoping the beautiful illustrations (and funny anecdotes) will inspire her as she tackles her final semester.
First Impressions by Charlie Lovett
First Impressions, a literary mystery about whether Jane Austen might have stolen the plot for Pride and Prejudice, is for my grandmother, who knows I’m an Austen fan and always buys me related books and tchotchkes at Christmas. (Full disclosure: I also snagged a copy for myself.)
The Deluge by Adam Tooze
I’m giving my Dad, a WWII history buff who loves data and huge books about global affairs, The Deluge. He just finished A Dance With Dragons—so I’m hoping this book will be similarly epic!
Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich
Thisis kind of a self-gift: I bought it for myself, but I’m hauling it home to Maine for the holidays because we’re cooking an Italian Christmas feast this year. So really, everyone in my family will get to enjoy it!
Kids say the darndest things.
