“No surprise — my top book recommendation is drawn from my favorite genre, historical fiction. Prepare for a thrill of a ride on the ‘Hindenburg, in Flight of Dreams.’ Author John Lee offers his re-imagination of the personal stories of love and intrigue aboard the doomed airship. Or check out Melanie Benjamin’s ‘The Swans of Fifth Avenue’ and enter the glamorous, scandalous 1960s world of Truman Capote and the famous Ladies Who Lunch. For a quirky but heartwarming story, meet the title character curmudgeon in Fredrik Backman’s ‘A Man Called Ove.’ I always have an audible book for the car — and that one was a real treat!’
Deby Eisenberg, author of “Pictures of the Past” and “Protecting Paige.” She appears at noon Wednesday on the Local Author Luncheon panel at the Miami Beach Jewish Community Center and at 10 a.m. Oct. 23 at Temple Beth Am in Pinecrest.
