Frank Buckley, TV reporter:

"Angela's Ashes" by Frank McCourt (Scribner).

"I was so moved by the poetry and humor in this book. My mother and father have talked about being hungry growing up, but I never understood what that meant until now. It helped me to imagine another life and be grateful for this one."

****

Tamra Auzenne, skin care and makeup artist:

"Anatomy of the Spirit" by Caroline Myss (Crown).

"Myss' interpretation of the human body and how it is affected by life experiences helps explain where illness stems from. The revelations of her own clients illustrate how our beliefs and choices dictate the source of real healing."

****

Elsie Sadler, community volunteer-activist:

"Perfection of the Morning" by Sharon Butala (HarperSan Francisco).

"In her second marriage, Butala went to live on a cattle ranch in South Saskatchewan. This is the story of her spiritual journey; by becoming a part of the miracle of nature, she could explore her whole psyche through nature. It's wonderful."

****

Terry Klein, theater technical director:

"Lord of Chaos" by Robert Jordan (Tor).

"Telling a long story is never an easy task--and this is the sixth book of the epic 'Wheel of Time' fantasy saga--and Jordan manages to keep your interest. With each volume, he captures the imagination in a new way."
