Daniel on Larry Meiller Show - here's a list of books and links to purchase

Here are the books featured on Wisconsin Public Radio's Larry Meiller Show.

Larry just finished reading John Sandford's Masked Prey and John Grisham's Camino Winds. He also read Lucy Foley's The Hunting Party, who is not as well known as Grisham and Sandford.

I recommended The Coyotes of Carthage, a novel by Steven Wright.

And then The Beauty in Breaking, a memoir by Michele Harper

Susan recommends The Invsible Rainbow, by Arthur Firstenberg and Plague by Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits. My suggestion was An Elegant Defense, by Matt Richtel.

Another recommendation - The Vanishing Half, by Brit Bennett

Barbie in Washburn recommends Mrs. Lincoln's Sisters, by Jennifer Chiaverini. Daniel gives a shout out to Chiaverini's Resistance Women, now in paperback.

More from Larry on Grisham - did he get the bookseller right in the Camino novels?

Summer reads - Elin Hilderbrand's 28 Summers, James Patterson's Summer House, and Jennifer Weiner's Big Summer. And of course Christi Clancy's The Second Home.

Lee in St. Charles, Minnesota recommends Matterhorn, by Karl Marlantes.

Susan from Fort Atkinson suggest Dancing Bears: True Stories of People Nostalgic for Life Under Tyranny, by WitoldSzablowski.

Daniel recommends The Story of a Goat, by Perumal Murugan. He also mentions One Part Woman.

Jerome called to recommend The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism, by Edward E Baptist.

Daniel notes sales resurgence for Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns. Coming soon is her new book, Caste.

Cole suggests I Know This Much Is True, by Wally Lamb. In retrospect, the person who likes this should read Brit Bennett!

Daniel recommends How We Fight for Our Lives, by Saeed Jones. This is an Lambda winner, as was Patsy, by Nicole Dennis-Benn and Lot, by Bryan Washington.

And here's another - Everywhere You Don't Belong, by Gabriel Bump.

My short story pick is If I Had Two Wings, by Randall Kenan.

Here's one more - Crooked Hallelujah, by Kelli Jo Ford. And speaking of Oklahoma, I just read Boom Town, by Sam Anderson.

Another debut - Lakewood, by Megan Giddings.

And finally - We Ride Upon Sticks, by Quan Barry.
