A Month in Siena, by Hisham Matar

Staff Pick

As he explores the Sienese school of painting, which has captivated him for decades, Matar writes exquisitely about his grief over the loss of his father and the healing power of art. In the seamless flow of his discussion of Siena, perspective, and the beauty of human connection, he creates an intimacy that draws readers into a sublime and moving experience. This is a true gem of a book whose warmth lingers long after it ends--and which asks to be read more than once.
