I finished ready the exquisite novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I still remember the moment when I read the title of the book in the thick of the story when the characters are holding on to dear life during a hurricane. Thrilling! I love that moment. This classic book is echoed in Salvage the Bones the 2011 (US) National Book Award winner for fiction which I read a few years ago.
And this is a relationship book a friend recommended... I wasn't sure if I should read it or Esther Perel's Mating in Captivity. I love Perel's TED Talk on desire and follow her on Twitter -- but I decided to give The Queen's Code a shot.
