The Knowledge: How to Rebuild Our World from Scratch

Read up, then—and keep the shotgun primed and the mason jars clean.


In the Light of What We Know

Beautifully written evidence that some of the most interesting writing in English is coming from the edges of old empires.


Don't Ever Look Back

A worthy successor to Buck’s fine-tuned debut.


Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality

First-rate reporting informs this thrilling narrative of hope.


'Til the Well Runs Dry

Sharma delivers a rich and satisfying debut on the ties of family, love and culture—and how those ties are sometimes better when broken.


The Target

Robie and Reel fans will thrill to see their favorite spies back in action, no matter what the setting.


A Fighting Chance

A frankly partisan memoir that provides shrewd insights into both national politics and the state of the middle class.


Sun Power

An engaging state of the union by an important leader in solar power.


The Forever Watch

Intriguing and powerfully disruptive.


Afterparty
Kirkus Reviews : Afterparty (April 23, 2014)

A hugely entertaining, surprising and perhaps prophetic package that, without seeming to, raises profound questions about the human mind and the nature of perception.


Otherwise Engaged

Sexy romance and intriguing mystery combine for a wholly satisfying and entertaining read.


The Weight of Blood: A Novel

The Weight of Blood succeeds not only in being a page-turner but also in shining stark light on the humanity and depravity that coexist in the most unexpected corners of our country.


Thirty Girls

Minot allows us to understand the nature of love and loss with two women from diametrically opposed worlds.


The Plover
Kirkus Reviews : The Plover (April 23, 2014)

A rare and unusual book and a brilliant, mystical exploration of the human spirit.


The Plover
Bookreporter : The Plover (April 20, 2014)

Touching, soul-searching and uplifting, while hilariously profane at the same time, Declan’s creative epithets are eloquent and frequent. The Plover touches that seeker of truth and redemption that lives within each of us.


Under a Silent Moon

Under a Silent Moon is a wonderful surprise. Your reading group will have lots of fun with this one, which leaves just enough characters standing at the end to promise more great things to come with successive volumes. And the ending will leave you breathless.


High Crime Area: Tales of Darkness and Dread

Horrific and creepy, HIGH CRIME AREA still manages to smartly critique American society and its uneasy feelings on race, sexuality, gender, academia and family dynamics.
