I’m eagerly awaiting these new books from Maggie Shipstead, Francisco Goldman, Joan Silber, Jeff VanderMeer, and Rachel Cusk. They promise page-turning and thoughtful involvement, from a speculative eco thriller to heartfelt linked stories.
When "The Zone of Interest" came out last month, I jumped in once again to read Martin Amis, after a long hiatus. It seems, however, that I keep jumping without getting hooked. Here's what's going on.
Here are three non-fiction books, released this summer, that caught my attention. Briefly noted.
In the summer of 2007, author Francisco Goldman lost his young wife Aura Estrada in a swimming accident on a beach in Mexico. His new book, "Say Her Name," is a mix of fact and fiction that tells the romantic yet tragic story of their brief years together. It's beautifully written and consuming.
