The Non-Fiction Takeover...
Non-fiction was one of our daily genre discussion topics for ArmchairBEA, and it seems that non-fiction is taking over my TBR all of a sudden. Between book club picks and books I'm generally excited about, non-fiction is taking the cake! All kinds of new acquisitions.
In the picturesque village of Guzmán, Spain, in a cave dug into a hillside on the edge of town, an ancient door leads to a cramped limestone chamber known as “the telling room.” Containing nothing but a wooden table and two benches, this is where villagers have gathered for centuries to share their stories and secrets—usually accompanied by copious amounts of wine. It was here, in the summer of 2000, that Michael Paterniti found himself listening to a larger-than-life Spanish cheesemaker named Ambrosio Molinos de las Heras as he spun an odd and compelling tale about a piece of cheese. An unusual piece of cheese. Made from an old family recipe, Ambrosio’s cheese was reputed to be among the finest in the world, and was said to hold mystical qualities. Eating it, some claimed, conjured long-lost memories. But then, Ambrosio said, things had gone horribly wrong. . . .
Paris: A Love Story, by Kati Marton, is a book I started reading at random before the last Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. I was totally taken with it but I had some more reading obligations at the time, so I'm excited to get back to this emotional story.
