On Our Nightstand, May 11th-17th

Here’s what we’re reading this week at Diesel!

Anna in Brentwood
The Good Son
By Michael Gruber
Picked this up on the recommendation of the fabulous Laura Miller; so far, I’m loving how intelligently-written and politically astute this thriller is.

Colin in Oakland
Matterhorn
By Karl Marlantes
The most realistic thing I’ve ever read about Vietnam.



Grant in Oakland
Ransom
By David Malouf
The most well-written, well-constructed book I’ve read this decade.

Karen in Oakland
The Big Short
By Michael Lewis
Really informative, simply written explanation of the financial crisis: Lewis is great at making a complicated thing seem less complicated.


Nell in Malibu
Cutting for Stone
By Abraham Verghese
A beautifully written historical novel with a truly intriguing plot.

And what about you? Any great reads that you can’t put down?
