On Our Nightstand, June 8th-14th

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

Anna in Brentwood
I Know I Am, But What Are You?
By Samantha Bee
The Daily Show correspondent’s memoir is laugh-out-loud funny and at times oddly touching. And not just in the bad-touch kind of way.

Cheryl in Brentwood
Light Boxes
By Shane Jones
I’m from back east, so I’m experiencing both nostalgia and pleasant schadenfreude in reading this novel about a small town stuck in perpetual February.

Colin in Oakland
Role Models
By John Waters
It’s John Waters! He’s a crazy, sick guy, who’s really funny and yet still humane. All kind of people are included in this autobiography, in which Waters explores his own life through the stories of people he’s admired.

Geo in Brentwood
The Sun and the Moon
By Matthew Goodman
A quirky and entertaining history book, taking place in 19th century New York, about a newspaper that runs a story about life on the moon, including beavers, unicorns, and lunar man-bats. You can’t make that stuff up (except that they did).

Nell in Malibu
Life of Pi
By Yann Martel
An interesting examination of religion, imagination, and creative storytelling.
