Deborah Batterman – Just Like February

An important novel...

I really enjoyed talking to Deborah Batterman about her new novel, Just Like February. It is a very touching coming-of-age story. Rachel Cohen looks back at her life as she relates the story of her close relationship with her beloved Uncle Jake. A mysterious man who travels to exotic places, he fills her life with interesting stories and gifts. She loves him with all her heart and knowledge of his complicated life a secret.

The book takes us on a journey from the days of Woodstock in the '60s to the AIDS crisis of the ’80s. It is a first-person coming-of-age story that finds Rachel having to deal with her parents stormy relationship and the heart braking realities of homophobia and AIDS.

Here another of Deborah's books that you will enjoy: Because my name is mother...

Coming up to Mother's Day, this book reminds us in these brief essays that every mother is a daughter, too. The insights she brings to simple acts – looking at old photographs, recalling the smells and tastes of her mother’s cooking, making her daughter’s bed or shopping with her – are as beautifully rendered as they are profound. It's only $0.99 -- so get it and enjoy!
