Stories I Tell Myself: Growing Up with Hunter S. Thompson

It’s a careful yet harrowing account of an offbeat childhood, and of a father-and-son relationship that grew very dark before it began to admit hints of light.

Light Years

Salter tells his tale well and he is a superb writer of moods and perceptions but this is a depressing novel.

Reader, I Married Him

These stories will enrich and complicate future readings of Jane Eyre, as the best fan fiction should.

Falling Together: How to Find Balance, Joy, and Meaningful Change When Your Life Seems to be Falling Apart

Falling Together guides the way to finding the good among the bad, the upside of the downside, the opportunity often hidden behind the challenge.

Innocents and Others: A Novel

Innocents and Others is a wonderfully alive novel about filmmaking, friendship, and self-creation. Its magic lies in the intelligence and depth of its sentences.

The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts

The Islamists accidentally drew worldwide attention to Timbuktu’s literary heritage, and enabled the first full accounting of its ­magnificence.

The Regional Office Is Under Attack!: A Novel

Gonzales’s world of shifting allegiances and magical bad girls will suck you in and keep you up late. Just don’t read it at work. You never know what might happen.

It feels less self-consciously literary than Mr. Swift’s earlier novels, and while it has a haunting, ceremonious pace, it also possesses a new emotional intensity.

My Struggle: Book 5

With only one more book to appear in English, it has become clear that “My Struggle” is a highly literary work, in the sense that its author makes choices, shapes his material and leaves out many things in telling his story.

The Adventurist

“The Adventurist” activated most of my cranial pleasure centers. It’s a brisk and polished and somehow very American novel.

Sleeping Giants

Creative and fun even while it shows mankind at its greediest.

Sleeping Giants

Not only is Sleeping Giants one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory, it's a smart demonstration of how science fiction can honor its traditions and reverse-engineer them at the same time.

The Decent Proposal

Part of the problem is that Donovan doesn't seem to ever really round these characters out much.
