Pick Your April Book

March 8, 2012 | By | Comments (8)

Hi, Bookies:

The poll is now open for April. What’s on the table: hilarious and astute observations from Tina Fey (she’s baaaackkkk) and Sloane Crosley, a fictionalized look at Wall Street, and a uniquely twisted detective story. Leigh Torretta will be our leader—should you be looking for Leigh, you’ll find her with RS.com’s ad sales crew. Have a peek at your choices, then vote below. Poll’s open until 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Sunday, March 25.

Bossypants, by Tina Fey

The previous almost-winner returns. Fey’s well-reviewed collection of essays about life, family, and career is as smart and funny as its author herself.

Bond Girl, by Erin Duffy

No, not that kind of Bond girl. The heroine of this debut novel is an ambitious twenty-something who is determined to run with the big boys on high-stakes Wall Street.

Motherless Brooklyn, by Jonathan Lethem

Lethem’s unconventional take on the detective novel centers on the murder of a small-time Brooklyn mobster and the orphan with Tourette’s syndrome who sets out to crack the case.

How Did You Get This Number, by Sloane Crosley

A second book of essays from the I Was Told There’d Be Cake author tackles the dilemmas of a 30+ woman trying to find her place in the world.
