Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again by Teresa GiudiceIt is SO EMBARRASSING that I read this and paid money for it. Ugh. But whatever. I watch bad reality tv all the time and always thought Teresa was funny. I wanted to know the backstory to her arrest and legal trouble but in the book she glosses it over and focuses on prison (she claims innocence but doesnt really give any information to back that up). Her prison descriptions sound like theyre written by a fifth grader and at the end of the book I found myself disliking her when I originally didnt. She talks about how much she loves Trump and says some weird, vaguely classist stuff about prison. She also says over and over that these women are criminals! SO ARE YOU. She and her husband committed fraud to earn over $5 million. Probably did more damage than the women in there for longer sentences for drugs. But, according to her, they were the real criminals. Jesus. Overall, how could I not have known this would be terrible?!

For years now, Timothy Garton Ash, the British historian and journalist, has written elegant essays -- published most often in The New York Review of Books -- full of shrewd understanding of the Central and East European struggle for political freedom. Not surprisingly, given his periods of residence and his travels in that part of the world, Mr. Garton Ash came to the attention of the State Security Service, a k a Stasi, the tentacular domestic and foreign spying outfit that operated in East Germany up to the demolition of the Berlin wall. In his new book, ''The File,'' he examines the materials the Stasi secretly compiled about him, consisting mostly of information provided by its vast network of informers. Garton Ash then interviews most of those who informed on him, as well as their handlers in the department of the vast Stasi bureaucracy in charge of his case. He wants to know what made the participants behave as they did, making the choice to go along and get along rather than, at least passively, resist.

Cindy S. Aron, Andrew P. In this book Andrew P. Haley offers a persuasive and engaging analysis of how dining at restaurants became an integral part of the lives of the American middle class.
