Marie Claire (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

THE CIR­CLE by Dave Eg­gers Eg­gers in­tro­duces us to an al­ter­na­tive world where pri­vacy and se­crecy are not al­lowed, and forces us to ques­tion where our own pri­vacy laws are go­ing. (R342) S. by J. J.Abrams and Doug Dorst Fol­low the anony­mous con­ver­sa­tion that un­folds af­ter a young woman picks up a book, left be­hind by a stranger, filled with his mar­gin notes, which re­veal a reader en­tranced by the story and its au­thor. Mak­ing notes of her own, she re­sponds and leaves the book for the stranger to find. (R442) THE IN­VEN­TION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd Told from the two vastly dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives of slave owner, Sarah Grimke, and her slave, Hetty, Kidd’s lat­est novel is mul­tidi­men­sional. It’s a seam­less blend of his­tory and fic­tion that will keep you en­grossed from be­gin­ning to end. (R392) LIT­TLE FAIL­URE by Gary Shteyn­gart A mem­oir about a Rus­sian Jew and his im­mi­gra­tion to Amer­ica, Shteyn­gart’s lat­est novel will make you gig­gle at times and have you brush­ing away tears at oth­ers. (R392)
