Time Pieces is a beautiful telling of an old man's relationship to a city he met when life seemed quite new. The mundane glories--the evening's life upon brick, the wit of old storytellers--were miraculous to the boy, bathetic to the young man, and now treasured by the old author who strives to rediscover childlike wonder. More than just a memoir, it is a plaintive reflection on time. What is the past? Banville writes, "If the present is where we live, the past is where we dream."

Winter, the second book in the Seasons Quartet, continues in the same vein as Autumn with vignettes about items, events, and people Knausgaard encounters in the season. I found the essays in turns funny, endearing, and haunting. A few of my favorite essays are "Winter Sounds", "Guests", and "Winter Boots".

Helen Mirren will soon star as the great lady, but the whole astonishing story is here. A 14 year old girl from minor German nobility is picked to marry the grandson of Peter the Great. Through improbable twists and turns, she uses dazzling intellect and political savvy to embody and lead Russia. This historical telling is a satisfying wow, from Pulitzer prize winning author, Robert Massie.
