- The Witness. The tragic story of Kitty Genovese and the “bystander effect.” Spine chilling to think that multiple witnesses were present but no one intervened until it was too late.
- Broadchurch. This British crime show is similar to AMC’s “The Killing,” focusing only on one case throughout the season. Acting is superb.
- Firecracker by David Iserson. Found this diamond at the dollar store! The author is an SNL writer, so of course, the dialogue is spectacular and oh so witty. By far, one of my favorite books this year.
- Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling. The lines in her show are always quotable. So no surprise that both her books are great. I liked this one a tad better than her first book—she gets more real. Be sure to bookmark the chapter “One of the President’s Men.”
- Song of the week: Lupo by Cairobi.
