The Narrow Road to the Deep North: A novel

This “Narrow Road to the Deep North” is both unforgiving and generous, a paradox that should earn it some fame of its own.


Broken Monsters

Never exploitative, never superficial, never uncomplicated: Beukes shows how horror can be the best way to explain our unbelievable reality. She uses the mode like the knife that opens the oyster.


The Monogram Murders

The Monogram Murders is a fun return to such a beloved character and one I think will please even the most persnickety mystery readers!


The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle

Goldman is writing in several modes at once, and the result can sometimes seem a little disjointed. But it's done with such generosity, charm and conviction that the journey is a rewarding one.


The Ambassadors: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : The Ambassadors (September 17, 2014)

This novel has good bones obscured by too much flab.


Noontide Toll: Stories
Kirkus Reviews : Noontide Toll (September 17, 2014)

A moving chronicle of hope triumphing over despair from the author of The Match.


I'll Give You the Sun

Here’s a narrative experience readers won’t soon forget.


Broadchurch
Kirkus Reviews : Broadchurch (September 17, 2014)

Kelly folds a loving portrait of rural Dorset and a well-made whodunit into a painstaking account of the grief and unimaginable pain that follow in the wake of one child’s murder.


Forgetting to Be Afraid: A Memoir

Doubtless we’ll be hearing more from Davis. This modest memoir makes it clear why even her opponents should pay attention to her.


A People's History of the French Revolution

A serious discussion of political ideas, and of the Enlightenment, is entirely absent from the book.


The Infinite Sea
Kirkus Reviews : The Infinite Sea (September 17, 2014)

A roller-coaster ride of a sequel.


Life Deluxe
Kirkus Reviews : Life Deluxe (September 17, 2014)

Through it all, Lapidus wastes no opportunity to explore the labyrinthine affinities between his heroes and villains. Better put aside the whole weekend for this guided tour of his Swedish hell.


Broken Monsters

Broken Monsters is one of the most remarkable books of the year, and one of the best suspense novels you'll read in quite some time.


Broken Monsters
Kirkus Reviews : Broken Monsters (September 17, 2014)

Beukes gave us a time traveling serial killer in The Shining Girls, and the monsters in her latest tale, whether they’re real or imagined, will keep you up all night.


Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David

A unique moment in history superbly captured. Yet another triumph for Wright.


The Glass Kitchen

The Glass Kitchen was a satisfying novel and a fun escape from everyday life. I hope Linda doesn't wait as long to publish her next novel.
