Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall
The Sopranos Sessions
If you like information-dense, meticulously footnoted commentary on your favorite TV shows, books like The Sopranos Sessions were written for you. In writing the book, Seitz and Sepinwall had access to series creator David Chase and many cast members, with the sad exception of the late James Gandolfini. There’s a breakdown of every episode, analyses of story and character arcs, and plenty of non-gossipy trivia on costumes, locations, and the art of staging fights and murders. One of the most interesting things I learned was how many of the actors in the series were hired with no previous acting experience.

A married judge has a one-night stand and gets a lot more than she bargained for. To reveal even a single other detail would be heartless, so just read it already.
Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive
A young single mom struggles to make things better for herself and her daughter while dealing with government bureaucracy, homelessness, sneers from the people behind her in the grocery checkout when she uses food stamps, and scrubbing the filthy toilets of people much better off than her financially. The only thing missing on this woman is the cape.
