The Golden Bough

by James George Frazer

This famous book marked a turning point in the consideration of religion. While it is certainly dry and 'scholarly' (as another reviewer has mentioned), that was part of the point. It presents the history and evolution of religion from an objective viewpoint outside of it. It contains a wealth of knowledge, and its perspective was a near revolution for its time.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
