Lynn Recommends

The Illusion of Separateness  by Simon Van Booy

"I'm really glad I set aside my skepticism and gave the book a chance.  I'm not sure how else to say this, but each simple, yet intricately woven story of each character had me paying attention to strangers as well as familiar people in my personal life, in a new way..." ~ Lynn


To Repair the World by Paul Farmer

"[Farmer's] fierce adherence to the injunction in medicine to 'do no harm' goes deeper than the norm found in the medicine-as-commodity model, and challenges us all to prioritize correcting the 'ills' of human economics and structures that keep the most downtrodden among us in that position" ~Lynn


In the Body of the World by Eve Ensler

"Eve glides seamlessly between the intensely personal and the globally political with the earthy, furious sort of howling riffs that make me think of mean feat, but Ensler pulls it off with the ordinary magic of a transformative revelation from a deeply trusted, funny, wise, complicated and very very simply human, but fiercely adventurous, sister or confidant." ~Lynn


Giants: The Parallel Lives of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln by John Stauffer

"WOW!... what a wonderful surprise!  This book delves into the trajectories of both lives with a combination of insight and depth that had me returning to the book with the sort of page-turning enthusiasm usually reserved for some kind of action-thriller novel." ~Lynn
