Coming in March: "Silk Parachutes" by John McPhee.

Silk Parachutes by John McPhee is a collection of prose pieces.  The piece that gives this book its title is about McPhee's memories of his mother; it first appeared in the New Yorker's Shouts and Murmurs column in the late '90s.  McPhee, whose style is narrative nonfiction, is a fantastic writer.  Definitely add Silk Parachutes to your list of books to look for in a few weeks.

If you aren't familiar with this author, consider this your lucky day because you now get to read for the first time Mr. McPhee's earlier works.  A complete list is available here.
