Office Girl

Love, beauty, rock and roll, and really annoying workplaces:  that's the territory covered in this charming indie romance.  The 1990s are drawing to a close and neither art-school dropout Odile or sound-obsessed Jack know where their stalled lives are going. Joe Meno's sly, funny and hiply warmheated story of their awkward journey to love makes for a delightfully airy summer read.

July 22: On this day in 1941, on his twelfth wedding anniversary, Eugene O'Neill presented the just-finished manuscript of Long Day's Journey into Night to his wife, Carlotta.

Crime fiction legends Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly discuss the new book that unites their beloved sleuths Patrick Kenzie and Harry Bosch.
