Authors Bala, Rao, St. Aubyn, Ishiguro; Filmmakers Suzuki, Wilder, Bergman, & Michael Moore | Audio & Video: May 1, 2018

These Girls will surely be bright beacons in all library collections; recommended for libraries where lighter self-improvement and parenting books are popular; this work deserves to stand on its own and belongs on the same shelf with other contemporary classics of the true crime genre; this stepped-up Blu-ray incarnation of an enduring Hollywood classic is a keeper; recommended for all history and Americana collections
