All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Rebecca Traister
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz Really good, really well written, I got caught up in the story and never got lost even though it took me all over the map and in and out of the lives of several different people over the course of decades (and not always in chronological order). I feel like I missed some things because I don't always have the Spanish to follow but I suppose Beli would have felt the same way when she first got to NY from the DR, you get the big picture but some of the nuance escapes. I found myself getting angry with the characters' fatalism, but hey I guess that means I cared enough about them, believed enough in them that they could make me mad.
