The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

For the love of music, the 70’s and cracking stories, you have to read this book. Written by Taylor Jenkins Reid and published in March, there has been a lot of hype leading up to its release. It already has its own Spotify playlist and Reece Witherspoon backed Netflix Series. Talk about a cross-disciplinary marketing juggernaut. […]
