Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed by Lori Gottlieb is a unique memoir that examines the world of psychotherapy from both sides of the couch. It follows four of Lori’s patients and their healing journeys from overcoming bad habits and grief, as well as from dealing a terminal diagnosis and being unwilling to change. Lori also writes about the relationship she forges with a therapist who she goes to after a bad break up. This book is sometimes light and sometimes heavy but always entertaining. The perfect summer read.

From humble beginnings, Chef Kwame Onwuachi rose to be one of the most anticipated restauranteurs before he was 30. Notes from a Young Black Chef: A Memoir is so much more than a rags to riches story. Crediting “years of boot strapping hustle and sheer luck” Kwame changes the trajectory of his life. I would give him more credit, talent and determination than he gives himself. From Nigeria to Louisiana to oil cleanup ships in the Gulf to some of the best fine dining restaurants in NY, you don’t have to be a foodie to love this book!

Many of us have read Laura Ingalls Wilder books as children or watched the wildly popular TV show in the 1970s but I don’t think many of us fully know the real story behind the life of Wilder, her parents, Caroline and Charles, her siblings, Mary, Carrie and Grace, and most especially her only child, Rose.  It’s a story spanning so much American history including the prairie homestead farmers being thwarted by grasshoppers, blizzards, fires, disease and crippling debt again and again. Caroline Fraser’s epic story of the life and autobiographical stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder deserves high praise.
