Lightman takes us back to 1905 and into the dreams of a young patent clerk named Albert Einstein, just as he was completing his theory of relativity. "Lightman lets the reader in on the workings of a creative scientific mind."
Priestdaddy is a (rare) memoir written by a thirty-something — the poet Patricia Lockwood. Raised by a Lutheran turned Catholic priest, Lockwood chronicles the unending string of hilarities that is her family life. It's humor writing with all the juicy three dimensionality of her poetry, which the Atlantic has described as "polymorphous, and Millennially mischievous —like the internet talking in its sleep..." Named one of the ten best books of 2017 by the New York Times, it's a great read!
