My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante is one of my favorite books. It is the first of a series of 4 books. It takes place in Naples, Italy and follows the lives of two young girls.
THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE by Erik Larson takes place in England during World War II. It tells the story of Winston Churchill’s first year as Prime Minister.
If you like Trevor Noah on television, you will love this autographical comedy by the South African comedian.
