Red Rocking Chair Read: The Beach at Galle Road

What will you be reading this weekend? Our new editorial intern, Katharine, is diving into The Beach at Galle Road by Joanna Luloff.

Watch this review of The Beach at Galle Road — and Comet’s Tale, a memoir by Steven D. Wolf — on the Good Day Alabama television show.

In The Beach at Galle Road, Luloff calls upon her experience with the Peace Corps to create this accomplished collection of interconnected stories, as the lives of Sri Lankan natives and American Peace Corps workers intersect during a time of change and crisis.

In Comet’s Tale, Wolf was forced into early retirement by a spinal condition and reluctantly left his family and moved to Arizona for its warm winter climate. A lifelong dog lover, the former hard-driving attorney is drawn to a local group that rescues retired racing greyhounds. When Comet, a once-abused cinnamon-striped racer, chooses to “adopt” Wolf, he has no idea that a life-altering relationship has begun—for both of them.

COMET’S TALE sounds exactly like the kind of book I love. If the end is bad for Comet, though, I’ll have a problem. Say it isn’t so. I’ll look for this book.
