Three books to take to the beach

Posted on

Hanging Up Delia Ephron
Nora Ephron roasted husband Carl Bernstein in Heartburn; now Delia examines her relationship with her manic, alcoholic screenwriter father and her two sisters (in reality she has three).

The Good Husband Gail Godwin
Four fascinating people in a small college town ponder the mystery of successful marriage, while grappling with inoperable cancer, writer’s block, academic backbiting, and the loss of a baby. This is Godwin’s ninth — and best — novel.

The Body Farm Patricia Cornwell
Fans of Dr. Kay Scarpetta, the brisk, no-nonsense Virginia medical examiner with a knack for solving homicides, won’t mind the somewhat predictable plot (the killer all but wears a sign).
