Life After Life: A Novel

There is a delight in the essence of this unusual fiction.


The Burgess Boys: A Novel

Strout is too gifted a writer to settle for a pat ending, and so some questions remain for the Burgess clan. What is never in doubt is how impeccably Strout brings these flawed people to life.


The Flamethrowers: A Novel

The Flamethrowers is a high-wire performance worthy of Philippe Petit. On lines stretched tight between satire and eulogy, she strolls above the self-absorbed terrain of the New York art scene in the 1970s, providing a vision alternately intimate and elevated.


Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

Go ahead and put this one in your carry-on. You won’t regret it.


Sex and the Citadel: Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World

“Sex and the Citadel” is as much a work of ill-supported optimism as it is an exposé, with a political context that does not extend far beyond the Arab Spring of 2011.


The Flamethrowers: A Novel

It succeeds because it is so full of vibrantly different stories and histories, all of them particular, all of them brilliantly alive.


The Smart One

Close’s gift as a writer is her spare but delicious prose and unflinching way of describing her characters.


Life After Life: A Novel

Art is long and life is short, but not too short to treat yourself to the pleasures of Kate Atkinson’s prose along the way.


There Was an Old Woman

Even if you figure things out early on, Ephron throws a curveball near the end that you’ll never see coming. All things considered, There Was an Old Woman is Ephron’s best book to date.


Jacob's Folly

Jacob's Folly is an absolute joy to read. It is smart, weird and funny, wry and magical, and Miller weaves the three stories together in interesting ways.


River of Stars

River of Stars is an extraordinary work -- epic in scope, exquisite in its presentation, and engaging across all levels.


The Fever Tree

McVeigh has fashioned a captivating and thoroughly researched historical novel.... The Fever Tree is also a riveting love story and a well-told tale of one woman’s journey towards self-discovery.


While We Were Watching Downton Abbey

Honesty in any relationship is vital, and Wax shows this truth in downtown Atlanta alongside the engrossing story of “Downton Abbey”.


Reconstructing Amelia

Reconstructing Amelia pulls you in from the first page and leaves you shaken with the tragedy of it all. This is a book that should be read by parents, teachers and students alike and needs to be in every high school and public library.


Harley Loco: A Memoir of Hard Living, Hair, and Post-Punk, from the Middle East to the Lower East Side

Though slow to get going, the second half of this memoir is strong stuff, with some truly amazing stories well-told.


Tuesday's Gone

A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller, this book casts its narrative net wider than Blue Monday, making welcome demands on its readers.


My Foreign Cities: A Memoir

Scarboro’s writing is marked by honesty, and although a new love appears for the young widow at the end, there’s no doubt of the warmth of her love for Stephen in the years they had together.
