Books We Love: “Goodbye, Vitamin” by Rachel Khong

The subject matter of Rachel Khong’s debut novel is serious, but the author (somehow) keeps it light.

A man finds pants in a tree. These pants belong to Howard Young, recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and the father of our heroine, Ruth Young. Ruth is freshly dis-engaged from her fiancé and has quit her job to move home and help care for her father. The subject matter of Rachel Khong’s debut novel is serious, but the author (somehow) keeps it light.

Ruth passes the time sourcing jellyfish (a great brain food) and arranging dummy university classes to appease her father, a former professor. The book interlaces comic scenarios (a class on the entertainment industry at Disneyland, anyone?) with some hard-hitting family truths, serving up a read that’s both moving and laugh-inducing.

To Read: Where have you been hibernating?

It’s dark out already, let us sleep. We could all use a retreat from the world for the rest of the season, but if you can’t escape waking life, try curling up with these literary hideaways.

To Read: How will you rule the school?

Back to school post-holidays? We wish. It was so much easier to exercise power among such pliable subjects—but here are some guides to practicing the art of war among the grown-ups.

To Read: What fall treat are you ready for?

Indulge in the best of harvest season with some literary favorites. You won’t need a chunky sweater to cover up any hibernation weight, either.

Wintry mix ahead

We discovered our inner geologists when designing our Winter 2017 collection, and the result is a range of frames so stunning we won’t even bother with the rock puns (“these frames are rock stars,” “they’ll rock your world,” etc.).

We discovered our inner geologists when designing our Winter 2017 collection, and the result is a range of frames so stunning we won’t even bother with the rock puns (“these frames are rock stars,” “they’ll rock your world,” etc.). Some are acetate and some are metal, some are brand-new shapes and some are old favorites. All of them elicit oohs and ahhs usually reserved for precious stones.

On the acetate side of things, we’ve developed a slew of custom gem-inspired colorways like Marbled Walnut, Pacific Slate, and Striped Granite (modeled after arfvedsonite, tree agate, and Dalmatian jasper, respectively). Other new colors like Rose Crystal and Jet Black Fade take after more transparent jewels. You’ll find them all on new silhouettes like angular Felix and offbeat Oscar—plus some established stunners like cat-eyed Louise Small and almost flat-browed Lowry.

Then there are the semi-rimless metal frames in the assortment. They range in hue from Rose Gold to Brushed Navy and stud the whole collection with extra gleam. (It’s winter! Erm, almost. Everything should gleam.)
