What Nouvella staff is reading this weekend
Deena Drewis, Editor: Starting into melvillehouse's Half the Kingdom by Lore Segal, whose books always make me wish I was Jewish and much funnier.
Emma Bushnell, Associate Editor: Bapsi Sidhwa’s An American Brat from Milkweed Editions. Her Cracking India cut my soul, and I want her to do it again.
Melissa MacEwan, Editorial Assistant: I just started reading Too Far to Go by John Updike. I expected the stories of a failing marriage to be humanizing, but I never thought they’d be funny.
