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.


The Mill River Redemption: A Novel

A heart-warming story about the importance of family support.


The Divorce Papers: A Novel

I would highly recommend this book, especially to those of you with interest in law, but also for those readers that love strong characters, a deeply moving storyline and an unusual yet clever style.


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.


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.


Friendswood: A Novel

Steinke's sensitive exploration of tangled human connections reminds us that love and friendship will go a long way toward seeing us through our trials.


Your Face in Mine: A Novel

"Your Face in Mine" is at its best — at its best? More like: flat-out brilliant — when it takes on these issues, which come up mainly as Kelly wrestles with himself.


Beware Beware

Nathanael West and Raymond Chandler would be proud.


The Bone Clocks: A Novel

This novel electrifyingly unites Mitchell's fictions into one universe while telling the story of Holly Sykes, an ordinary young woman whose chance encounters give her life meaning.


Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay

Ferrante writes with the kind of power saved for weather systems with female names, sparing no one, and "Those Who Stay" is a tour de force. I don't want to read anything else.


Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy

As fiction, her book would allow the reader a vivid engagement with the past through the imaginations of four extraordinary women. As a work of history, however, it raises as many questions as it answers.


The Emerald Light in the Air

Solace may be the best we can hope for — an idea Antrim raises again and again.


Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations with Today's Top Comedy Writers

Sacks is above all a fan, but he's also a well-informed one. He asks productive, genuinely interested, insightful questions throughout.


The Moor's Account: A Novel

"The Moor's Account" offers a pungent alternative history that muses on the ambiguous power of words to either tell the truth or reshape it according to our desires.


The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism

"The Half Has Never Been Told" is a fresh if flawed take on a history we thought we knew too well — the history of a people who were victimized by a medieval brand of capitalism but survived.


World Order

While Kissinger's geopolitical analysis of our global challenges is compelling, it becomes increasingly clear throughout the book that his recommendations will be a tough sell to the tea partiers and Occupy-ers who dominate our current political landscape.


Broken Monsters

"Broken Monsters" holds up a mirror to those who rabidly hit refresh in search of more dehumanizing gore and those who wish to be a star in the atrocity exhibition.


Gabriel: A Poem

The result is a new sort of confession, one that doesn't, can't, lead to catharsis, that acknowledges the futility of the gesture even as it engages in it anyway.


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

"Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David" is his exceedingly balanced, highly readable and appropriately sober look at the peace talks that unfolded at the wooded military base in Maryland.
