The Story of a Brief Marriage

What does it mean to be human when living under a rain of death? This most humane of novels offers an attempt at an answer.


The Family Plot

You don't have to be a fan of reality tv to love Priest's latest, but I would definitely say that you have to be a fan of haunted house books!


The Kept Woman

Trust me, if you're ok with dark, this is one that will keep you reading into the wee hours and/or dropping all your commitments to get to the end!


The Woman in Cabin 10

The Woman in Cabin 10 is a fun thriller and one that's put Ware's In A Dark, Dark Wood on my immediate to read list now too.


We Eat Our Own: A Novel

Kea Wilson has taken this thoroughly bizarre true story as the template for her canny, funny, impressively detailed debut novel, “We Eat Our Own.”


Time Travel: A History

If this new book can sometimes feel like a mind-smashing catalog of literary and filmic references to time ­travel, it’s also a wonderful reminder that the most potent time-traveling technology we have is also the oldest technology we have: storytelling.


Odes

Her new book, “Odes,” picks up where “Stag’s Leap” left off, which is to say that it contains some of the best and most ingenious poems of her career.


The Iran Wars: Spy Games, Bank Battles, and the Secret Deals That Reshaped the Middle East

“The Iran Wars” offers a useful — if somewhat partisan — perspective on the recent track record for such an undertaking.


Sleeping on Jupiter

The world she creates is ambitiously imagined, her characters possessed of an inner verity.


Power at Ground Zero

Sagalyn has written a great epic of political wrangling and real estate. We now need to ponder its larger meaning.


Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939

Mr. Ullrich offers a fascinating Shakespearean parable about how the confluence of circumstance, chance, a ruthless individual and the willful blindness of others can transform a country — and, in Hitler’s case, lead to an unimaginable nightmare for the world.


The Huntress: The Adventures, Escapades, and Triumphs of Alicia Patterson: Aviatrix, Sportswoman, Journalist, Publisher

The heyday of print journalism may be long gone, but thanks to this rollicking biography, the path-breaking Alicia Patterson will continue to inspire another generation of newshounds.


A Truck Full of Money: One Man's Quest to Recover from Great Success

“A Truck Full of Money” gives us a sensitive and vivid portrayal of bipolar disorder, often capturing English’s manic stages in long, colorful quotes that careen riotously from topic to topic.


Carousel Court: A Novel

The California fires cool, and so do the pages. Characters slow down, reflect and gradually reveal new depth as they struggle toward an ending full of resilience and — dare they imagine — hope.


When Watched: Stories

“When Watched,” Leopoldine Core’s first collection of short stories, dwells in the realm of the sparkling mundane, the type of human matter that is invitingly recognizable, the type of matter that you yourself have participated in or observed.


Liberty Street: A Novel

Warren’s crisp, evocative and controlled prose allows the highly charged emotions of her characters space to breathe.


Razor Girl: A novel

The farce machinery of Hiaasen’s fiction is, as always, fearsomely elaborate, and a good part of the pleasure of “Razor Girl” is in the casual, no-sweat way he sets it all up.


Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock, and Fear . . . and Why

Doyle reminds us that we shouldn’t be so quick to judge women in terms of degrading ­stereotypes or unrealistic expectations.


The Nix: A novel

This is a book to get one excited not only about Hill and his future as a novelist, but also about the power of writing to blot out background-noise banality and vault us forward into the new and wondrous.
