Reader’s favs: on the light side

Kiss Carlo by Adriana Trigiani continues her series of Italo-American family capers. In this outing, star-struck cad-driver Nicky has been moonlighting from the family cab company at the local theater company.  A family meltdown and romantic complications follows. But no drama, please. This is a ”delightfully sprawling comedy of extended families, in all their cocooning warmth and suffocating expectations.”  Nina George, who made a name for herself with The Little Paris Bookshop,  is back with The Little French Bistro.  The titular establishment is on the coast of France, where a  would-be suicide wanders in, is charmed by the eccentric clientele, and finds eventually, a reason to live.
