Mad Women – Jane Maas

Calling all Mad Men fans! How authentic is Peggy Olson? Very real judging from this fun memoir by Jane Maas. Her humorous yet authoritative account of her life in advertising during the ’60s is a welcome look behind the curtain into a traditionally male world.

A Venetian Affair – Andrea DiRobilant

A real-life forbidden 18th century love affair is brought back to life through old letters uncovered in the author’s family home in Venice. Rich historical imagery, familiar emotion and Casanova himself!
