The Book Babes offer up the best in fiction and non-fiction, suggesting hundreds of good books to suit every mood and stage of a woman's life. A book with personality that recommends the best in fiction and nonfiction, "Between the Covers" suggests hundreds of good books to suit every mood and stage of a woman's life. Here, for the first time, is a book on books based on what women care about most, one that travels from Jane Austen to Zadie Smith, from Mary McCarthy to Mary Higgins Clark, from "The Joy of Cooking" to "The Joy of Sex."In "Between the Covers", the Book Babes put Moby-Dick alongside "A Perfect Storm" in "10 Books That Spell Disaster." Ever wonder how Jane Austen relates to Suze Orman (hint: it's all about money) or how books as different as Mark Haddon's novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" and Temple Grandin's "Animals in Translation" address similar issues? From sections such as 'Babes We Love' (Role Models, Real and Imagined) to 'The Babe Inside' (focusing on Body and Soul), 'Family & Friends', 'Love, Sex, and Second Chances', 'Brave New World', and 'Living to Read', the book is organized around women's commitments - to themselves, their friends and family, the larger world - and to their concerns, from health to sex to how to manage their finances.
