What now? by Ann Patchett

If you won’t be attending a graduation ceremony this year, What now? is the book for you: the perfect commencement address sans the harsh sun, the uncomfortable chairs, or the awkward small talk with the other parents. And if you are on graduation duty, I bet the speeches won’t be as good as this one. Without spoiling the fun, there’s a wonderful story about baking at the very beginning…

My only gripe is about the graphics. The “book” is really quite short so the editor found it necessary to intersperse a plethora of photos and drawings of paths, mazes, and other heavy-handed imagery about choices all throughout the book. One would be wonderful (like the cover); such a large number is intrusive and annoying.

P.S. An especially nice treat for Ann Patchett’s fans.
