Stories we could tell

Maybe you should Talk to Someone” shares a psychiatrist’s insights from the couch as well as the chair. Lori Gottlieb, a therapist, finds herself needing to go into therapy.  She invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others. This book is a hilarious and thought-provoking tightrope walk between hope and change.  And in “American Summer”, which details effects of gun violence in one American city through the eyes these involved, Alex Kotlowitz reminds us that’s it’s not all about hot dogs and pretzels and beer.
