  1. If you like non-fiction presented in a fiction-like narrative, then I’d recommend The Speckled Monster by Jennifer Lee Carrell. It’s about how smallpox innocuation was introduced into Europe and the U.S.
    For biography, I really liked Marie Curie: A Life by Susan Quinn. Curie is one of my lifelong idols, and this book creates a well-rounded portrait of her personal life, her scientific acheivements, and the historical circumstances in which she lived.
    Good luck!

  2. Schumann, The Inner Voices of a Musical Genius by Peter Ostwald. Fascinating bio of a brilliant and troubled composer/poet. Not to mention that whole ménage à trois with his wife Clara and Brahms.

  3. I have no idea of your tastes, having just dropped in from the OTHER mother, but my contribution is
    Inner Cities, Drusilla Modjeska (ed.)
