Biography & autobiography


As a romance, RIVETED is refreshing and well written, touching on complicated themes with sensitivity and realism. As a steampunk world, this story is five stars across the board. I can’t get enough of exploring The Iron Seas, every glimpse of this alternate history leaves me fascinated and hungry for more.

Full Blooded

I haven't enjoyed a werewolf story this much since the first time I read Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Telegraph Avenue

There is something deeply current about this wise and soulful novel, even as its main characters are so deeply mired in the past.

A fascinating historical narrative, even if Nelson occasionally confuses cause and effect with correlation or even coincidence in some of his case studies.

NW: A Novel

NW offers a nuanced, disturbing exploration of the boundaries, some porous, some impenetrable, between people living cheek by jowl in urban centers where the widening gap between haves and have-nots has created chasms into which we're all in danger of falling.

Despite the dramatic events, the overall effect is one of surprising blandness, like something you've read before.

It is Smith’s most satisfying novel, funny, sexy, weird, full of acute social comedy, like London. She’s up there with the best around.

The Caller: An Inspector Sejer Mystery

These stories will put you away, no questions asked.

Broken Harbor: A Novel

It's good to see contemporary literature engaging a crisis that has had such an impact on the lives of so many. This is, in fact, what good literature does. It makes us look at our world and perhaps forces us to see what we have chosen to ignore.

Seating Arrangements

For a first novel, Shipstead delivers a delight.

Devil Said Bang

Written with the same crude, dark, sarcastic and irreverent style that has become a guilty pleasure for fans of the series, Devil Said Bang plays a shell-game with the plot; just when you think it should be over you realize you’re only a third of the way through.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

It's the rare book that actually deserves the term "laugh-out-loud funny".

Breed: A Novel

This is a gruesome book, a full-bore foray into the horror genre, so literary loveliness goes only so far.

Telegraph Avenue

His people become so real to us, their problems so palpably netted in the author’s buoyant, expressionistic prose, that the novel gradually becomes a genuinely immersive experience — something increasingly rare in our ADD age.

Brooks’s sprightly yet thoughtful prose, her carefully constructed narrative and her passionate yet forgiving activism make hers a rare memoir that ended too soon.
