"The BookBrowse Review: What's Worth Preserving?"

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400

What does humanity deem as worth preserving — and at what cost? These are a few of many questions expertly discussed in this issue. Savage Country visits a time in U.S. history when the buffalo population was at risk, while the YA novel Landscape With Invisible Hand dives into a speculative future and assesses our collective decisions about the universe. The paperback releases are studded with favorites including Sebastian Barry's Days Without End and The Signal Flame by Andrew Krivak. Happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review: Fall for New Books"

Wed, 6 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400

Fall is in the air and it's time for reinvention. Arthur Less, the protagonist of the charming Less, is trying to reboot his life in the wake of his partner's marriage, while the Golden family attempts a version of the same in Salman Rushdie's The Golden House. The protagonist in Genuine Fraud, however, realizes there are limits to second acts. Our rich paperback selection includes Will Schwalbe's Books for Living and Emma Donoghue's The Wonder. Happy fall — and happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review"

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0400

A large canvas can be a great backdrop for a powerful story as The Locals by Pulitzer-finalist Jonathan Dee illustrates. A similarly compelling case can be made for The Heart's Invisible Furies which tracks much of contemporary Irish history through the lens of one gay man. Our paperback selections include the winner of the 2016 BookBrowse Young Adult Novel, All We Have Left, and a precise exploration of family dynamics in Caroline Leavitt's Cruel Beautiful World. Go large or zoom in close with the many delightful books in this issue. Happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review"

Wed, 2 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0400

The power of language, in both good ways and bad, is apparent in the books we feature in this issue. In The Confusion of Languages, Siobhan Fallon explores how it can complicate already tenuous relationships while in Hunger, memoirist Roxane Gay uses language as a tool to explore her struggles with body image and weight. Among the newly released paperbacks we have a Daphne du Maurier-like Rabbit Hall and a fresh new voice in My Name is Leon. Happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review"

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0400

Enjoy the dog days of summer with a few reading indulgences. We've got a riveting mystery set in California, Shadow Man, and a pulse-pounding procedural, The Force. We also feature Arundhati Roy's new novel after a hiatus of twenty years, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. Pack your beach bag with the Oprah pick, Behold the Dreamers or a whole host of other newly released paperbacks including the atmospheric Smoke, or take a journey around the world in Crossing the Horizon. Happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review"

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0400

History hits home in various ways in this issue. World War II and Vietnam loom over Before We Sleep, while the paperback original, Kintu, traces Uganda's history over the course of many generations. Personal histories visit Driving Miss Norma, a spirited account of one woman's facing down her own mortality, while Priestdaddy is an engaging memoir by a young poet mostly focused on her father, a colorful Catholic priest. Don't miss new paperback releases including the exquisite Mischling about twin subjects in a Holocaust camp and YA releases, The Serpent King and Thanks For the Trouble.

"The BookBrowse Review"

Wed, 31 May 2017 00:00:00 -0400

Get the summer reading season into high gear with a delightful mixed bag of books from this issue. Add Proving Ground, a sweeping crime novel set in New York City, to your list, or dig into the paperback original, The Garden of Small Beginnings. Continue in the thriller genre with the newly released paperback, Redemption Road. If nonfiction tickles your fancy, don't miss Street of Eternal Happiness, a look at contemporary China, also now in paperback. Happy summer and happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review: Everybody Loves a Hero"

Wed, 17 May 2017 00:00:00 -0400

Meet an assortment of heroes or at least people trying to do the right thing in our selections in this issue. Dorky Tom Grendel comes to his neighborhood's rescue in the light-hearted novel, Grendel's Guide to Love and War. In The Women in the Castle, an aristocratic widow in World War II Germany tries to do good after a pivotal moment in German history. Hits from 2016 including The Nix and Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing are newly released in paperback so don't miss any of the great books this issue. Happy reading!

"The BookBrowse Review: A Bouquet of Books"

Wed, 3 May 2017 00:00:00 -0400

We've assembled a bursting bouquet of books to kick-start your spring and summer reading. Four nonfiction books including Glass House and The Islamic Enlightenment complement a rich selection of fiction including Elizabeth Strout's latest, Anything is Possible. In paperback, we have BookBrowse's Favorite Fiction for 2015, The Nightingale, and books by popular authors such as Ann Patchett and Louise Penny. Happy reading and Happy Mother's Day!

"The BookBrowse Review: Homeward Bound with Books"

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 00:00:00 -0400

That old saying about home being where the heart is might be trite but it's true. The protagonist in Vaddey Ratner's Music of the Ghosts certainly thinks so after returning to her native Cambodia as a survivor of the Khmer Rouge, while Sarah Gerard's collection of essays, Sunshine State, shows her feeling ambivalent about home. In Annie Proulx's Barkskins, the native Americans can't recognize their own homeland generations after it's been colonized. Sink into the riches of books in this issue. Happy reading!
