Modern Lovers

In these pages, Ms. Straub gives us lots of sharp, unfiltered snapshots of a Brooklyn in the throes of transition.


Wilde Lake

“Wilde Lake” is a real success.


Bucky F*cking Dent

It all has the potential for some sappy feel-good melodrama just in time for Father’s Day; but somehow, like Bucky Dent himself, Duchovny hits an unexpected home run.


Sweetbitter: A novel

Bittersweet and as vainglorious as any young, first-heartbreak, ’I Will Survive’ scenario could be, the book matches in confidence and self-belief its author’s pitch to the dining publisher.


Sweetbitter: A novel

This excellent writer knows too well that “a certain connoisseurship of taste, a mark of how you deal with the world, is the ability to relish the bitter, to crave it even, the way you do the sweet.”


Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets

“Secondhand Time” is an avalanche of engrossing talk.


Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon

Ms. Dickey’s research and reporting are exhaustive, and the book does sometimes get sluggish with details, but it is this work that makes her convincing when she argues that the dogs are more victims than monsters.


The Second Life of Nick Mason

With a terrific new hero built for the long run, Hamilton stands to gain new followers—especially if Hollywood's plans to adapt the book come to fruition.


100 Days of Cake

Still, for a book about depression, this is a pretty enjoyable one.


The Boys in the Bunkhouse

Gently, empathetically, and indelibly, Barry conveys a tale of unthinkable brutality.


Blood Flag

Martini holds serve with his 14th Paul Madriani thriller, in which Hitler's evil legacy continues to haunt survivors of World War II.


The Sky Over Lima

Charming if a bit precious, Bárcena’s novel is both a love letter to the creative process and a contemplation on the sometimes-blurred line between life and art.


Girls on Fire

Simultaneously overwhelming and underwhelming.


The Last Ranch: A Novel of the New American West

A latter-day oater, of some interest to fans of the genre.


Lost and Gone Forever

Grecian (The Harvest Man, 2015, etc.) spares no gruesome detail in this fifth installment about the hunt for England’s most famous serial killer. If you’re up for one more tale about him and you can stand the gore, you’re in for quite a ride.


The Last Star

A haunting, unforgettable finale.


All Fixed Up

Sure to please series regulars and fans of urban fantasy/mystery/romance.
