10 Great Beach (Or Pool) Reads: Sedaris, Capote, And More

“Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father” by Alysia Abbott

Alysia Abbott’s mother died when she was just a toddler. In the late 1970’s, her father, Steve, an openly gay man, brought her to San Francisco, where the two made their home in the city’s Haight district. In this evocative new memoir, Abbott writes about growing up in a city bustling with homosexual men in search of liberation, as well as how the AIDS epidemic shaped her, and finding her identity during such a tumultuous time in history.

      David Sedaris’ latest book is hilarious! The parts on his time in China blew my mind!
