Readers’ Review: “Drown” by Junot Diaz (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 6/29/16) Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Diaz is considered one of the most important voices in contemporary fiction. His best-known work is his novel, “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.” Diaz first got attention 20 years ago for a series of heart-breaking short stories. The tales capture the painful, violent, and sometimes beautiful realities of a fragmented family. Like Diaz himself, the characters are from the Dominican Republic, struggling to make their way in New York and New Jersey in the 1980s. For this month’s Readers’ Review, Diane Rehm and a panel of guests take a look back at the story collection “Drown.”

Readers’ Review: “My Brilliant Friend” by Elena Ferrante (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 11/25) The “Neapolitan novels” are a series of four books written by Italian author Elena Ferrante. They trace the fierce, decades-long friendship between Lila and Elena, two working class girls from Naples. The English translations began rolling out three years ago. Since then, Ferrante has developed somewhat of a cult following that unexpectedly pushed her books onto the bestseller list. Critics have called her “the best contemporary novelist you’ve never heard of.” And, in fact, nobody knows her true identity, as she publishes under a pseudonym. For our November Readers’ Review, a discussion of the first of Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels: “My Brilliant Friend.”Guests: Maureen Corrigan book critic,NPR's Fresh Air; author, "So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures" Louis Bayard author, "Roosevelt's Beast."

Readers’ Review: “The Haunting Of Hill House” By Shirley Jackson (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 10/14) Halloween is around the corner, and for our October Readers’ Review we’ve chosen an appropriately scary story: “The Haunting of Hill House.” The novel by Shirley Jackson was first published in 1959. It’s now viewed by many as one of the best literary ghost stories of the 20th century. It was made into a feature film twice. Set somewhere in rural America in an old house with secrets, the story follows a professor and three assistants who seek to confirm the presence of supernatural phenomena. Like the evil in the house itself, fear sneaks up on the visitors – and the novel’s readers.Guests: Evan Berry professor of philosophy and religion, American University; author, "Devoted to Nature: The Religious Roots of American Environmentalism" .  Diane Cerniglia English department chair, Bishop O'Connell High School, Arlington, Virginia. Marcela Valdes journalist and book critic, Latin American and Latino literature; author, "Introduction to "Roberto Bolano: The Last Interview and Other Conversations".

Readers’ Review: “Go Set A Watchman” By Harper Lee (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 8/26) Last month, the country experienced one of the biggest literary events in recent memory: The release of Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman.” Written before Lee’s beloved classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” the novel follows a grown-up Scout as she travels from New York to her hometown of Maycomb, Alabama. Questions linger as to whether the aging Lee approved the publication of the unearthed manuscript, yet the book set sales records even before it hit the shelves. Since then, critics have expressed mixed opinions about its merit and surprise at the portrayal of the heroic Atticus Finch as racist. We give you a chance to weigh in on this new release by Harper Lee. Guests: Charles J. Shields biographer; author, "Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee". Maureen Corrigan book critic,NPR's Fresh Air; author, "So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures". Paul Butler professor, Georgetown Law School.

Readers’ Review: “Orphan Train” By Christina Baker Kline (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 7/29) Tens of thousands of homeless children were transported by train out of northern cities to the rural west between 1854 and the Great Depression. The Children’s Aid Society wanted to give abandoned homeless children a fresh start. Some ended up adopted by kind families, but many ended up in hard labor. Vivian is one such girl sent from New York City to Minnesota. She’s the main character in a best-selling novel by Christina Baker Kline. A Readers’ Review discussion of “Orphan Train.”  Guests: Stephen O'Connor author. His historical non-fiction book, "Orphan Trains," was about the 250,000 homeless children transported out of American cities and placed with families in the rural West from 1854 to 1929.  Keith Donohue novelist and book critic. He is the author of "The Boy Who Drew Monsters," "The Stolen Child," "Centuries of June," and "Angels of Destruction."  Janice Nimura author and book critic.

Readers’ Review: “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 6/24) Lydia is dead. But they don’t know it yet.” These are the opening lines of “Everything I Never Told You,” by Celeste Ng. The novel tells the story of a Chinese American family living in small-town Ohio in the 1970s. The death of their middle daughter lays bare the struggle this mixed-race family faces at a time when few, if any, looked like them. Lydia had been the favorite – to her mother, she was the future doctor she, herself, never could be. To her father, she was the popular high school kid he never was. But as the mystery of her death unfolds, we learn that her parents didn’t really know her at all. Join Diane and her guests for our June Readers’ Review discussion of the secrets and silences of “Everything I Never Told You.” Guests: Lynn Neary NPR correspondent covering books and publishing. Lawrence-Minh Bui Davis director of the Asian American Literary Review Patricia Chu associate professor of English at The George Washington University and author of "Assimilating Asians: Gendered Strategies of Authorship in Asian America" and the forthcoming book "Where I Have Never Been: Asian American Narratives of Return"  Related Links: Everything I Never Told You By Celeste Ng  Penguin Books  The Asian American Literary Review By Patricia P.

Readers’ Review: “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 4/29) As April comes to a close, we mark National Poetry Month with a Readers’ Review of “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson. A memoir written in verse, the book received this year’s National Book Award for young people’s literature. It weaves together Woodson’s memories of a childhood split between North and South, city and country, the world of her Jehovah’s Witness upbringing, and her secular surroundings. The Civil Rights movement provides the backdrop to Woodson’s patchwork of images, offering readers a child’s perspective on what it means to grow up black in America. Guests: Dana Williams professor of African American literature and chair of the English department at Howard University. Jamelle Bouie a staff writer on politics, policy, and race at Slate. David Orr poetry columnist for the New York Times Book Review and author of "Beautiful & Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry."

Readers’ Review: “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 3/25) A young man trapped in darkness listens to a girl’s voice over the radio. This is the first scene author Anthony Doerr imagined, in what became his book “All the Light We Cannot See.” The novel flips between the stories of two young people grappling with the events of World War II: A curious, blind French girl, and a German boy with a talent for working with radios. Eventually, their stories weave together. The novel took Doerr a decade to research and write; he was not expecting it to be widely read, but it was a breakout literary hit in 2014. For this month’s Readers’ Review, we explore “All the Light We Cannot See.”

Readers’ Review: “The Adventures Of Alice In Wonderland” By Lewis Carroll (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 2/25) Once upon a time, children’s stories were dull tales written to impart morals to young minds. In 1865, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, writing under the name Lewis Carroll, changed that. He introduced the world to a nonsensical cast of characters: A white rabbit with a pocket watch, a caterpillar smoking a hookah and a brave, befuddled heroine named Alice. One hundred and fifty years later, the influence of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” has spread far and wide. The story has been translated into about 100 languages, adapted to the screen dozens of times and explored in visual art, opera and ballet. Join Diane and her guests for this month’s Readers’ Review: The whimsical appeal of Alice in Wonderland.

Readers’ Review: “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 1/28) In 2007, neuroscientist Lisa Genova self-published her first novel, “Still Alice.” It tells the story of a Harvard psychology professor and her experience with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The book became a best-seller and is now a major motion picture. Join Diane and her guests for a discussion of “Still Alice.”

Readers' Review: "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrisong (Rebroadcast): (NPR Diane Rehm Show, 1/19) For our next Readers’ Review: “The Bluest Eye” by Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison. Set during the Depression, it tells the story of a young African-American girl who thinks blonde hair and blue eyes are the key to a better life. Join us for a discussion of Morrison’s first novel, “The Bluest Eye.” fiction
