New Books for Spring: Pineapple Street - SavvyMom

Pineapple Street: A Novel by Jenny Jackson

In one of the buzziest books of the year, debut author and veteran Knopf editor Jenny Jackson gives readers an inside glimpse into the lives of three WASPy Brooklyn Heights women. Full of delightful intrigue, romance, entertaining twists, and witty commentaries on privilege, this book offers the best of both worlds: as Vogue put it in a review, it’s “a guilty pleasure that also feels like a sociological text.”

Clytemnestra: A Novel by Costanza Casati

If you’re looking for a true escape, this novel brings you all the way back to Ancient Greece and shines a feminist light on Helen of Troy’s twin sister, the woefully neglected and overshadowed Clytemnestra. Her rendition of this lost-to-history female figure is a fiercely intelligent and brave warrior queen that you’ll find yourself rooting for regardless of whether you’re usually into classical mythology or not.

New Books for Spring - SavvyMom

Coronation Year: A Novel by Jennifer Robson
