Mary's Picks

Mary is the oldest and strongest (freakishly so) member of the Penguin staff. She also has worked for the Penguin the longest. She does not limit herself to just one genre; favorites include art, cooking, mysteries (scary ones) and a good book on history. And she never turns down a new, fast-paced, entertaining novel.
