Several well-known authors have new books coming out or just released.
Andre Dubus III has a well reviewed collection of short stories called Dirty Love. Bonus is that he’ll be back at the Library – check out the website site for date and details.
For mystery lovers – Julia Spencer-Fleming has just released #8 in her series entitled Through the Evil Days and Elizabeth George has her latest – Just One Evil Act – evil apparently being big this fall. And if you like them dark – check out Police by Jo Nesbo.
People who loved Donna Tartt’s earlier work The Secret History have a new one this year – The Gold Finch described as a story of loss and obsession, survival and self invention and the enormous power of art.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the best seller Eat Pray Love has a novel out – The Signature of All Things – highly recommended by a Bagels and Books member.
If A Time to Kill is your favorite John Grisham (it’s mine) you’ll be excited to hear that he has a sequel – Sycamore Row.
If your choice is non-fiction, you might want to check out David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell in which he looks at how we think about obstacles and disadvantages and offers a new interpretation of what it means to be discriminated against or cope with a disability or lose a parent or attend a mediocre school or suffer from any number of other apparent setbacks.
