New Books! Week of March 25

Here are books that just arrived this week. Scroll down to order.

Walter Mosley - Trouble Is What I Do

"The crime novels of Walter Mosley are first and foremost crackling good stories, full of mystery, suspense, and prose like good soul food: hearty, stick-to-your-ribs sentences with a spicy aftertaste." - The Washington Post

Robert Reich - The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It

"In this book, Robert Reich exposes the con job of America's present manic hyper-capitalism. He exposes a 'system' that is defined less by free markets than by elite capture." - Anand Giriharadas

Louise Erdrich - The Night Watchman

"Like Toni Morrison, like Tolstoy, like Steinbeck, Erdrich writes her characters with a helpless love and witnesses them with a supreme absence of judgment." - San Francisco Chronicle

Emily St. John Mandel - The Glass Hotel

"Ingenious, enthralling...Mandel's wonderful novel follows a brother and sister as they navigate heartache, loneliness, wealth, corruption, drugs, ghosts, and guilt." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Barbara Ehrenreich - Had I Known: Collected Essays

"Barbara Ehrenreich is smart, provocative, funny, and sane in a world that needs more of all four." - Diane Sawyer

N.K. Jemesin - The City We Became

"It's a glorious fantasy, set in that most imaginary of cities, New York. It's inclusive in all the best ways, and manages to contain both Borges and Lovecraft in its fabric, but the unique voice and viewpoint are Jemesin's alone. - Neil Gaiman

Breanne Fahs - Burn It Down: Feminist Manifestos For The Revolution

"An invaluable reminder of feminism's radical and revolutionary visions. It's also, to those least inclined to read it but most in need of doing so, a powerful threat." - Soraya Chemaly

Therese Anne Fowler - A Good Neighborhood

"A feast of a read: compelling, heartbreaking, and inevitable. I finished it in a single sitting. Yes, it's that good." - Jodi Picoult

Laila Lalami - The Other Americans

"A compelling portrait of race and immigration in America...Lalami is remarkably skilled at rendering the interior lives of her cast." - Time

Jon Fosse - The Other Name

"Fosse's fusing of the commonplace and the existential, together with his dramatic forays iinto the past, make for a relentlessly consuming work." - The Guardian

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz - An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States

"This may well be the most important US history book you will read in your lifetime." Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams

Peter Heller - The River

"A poetic and unnerving wilderness thriller...Full of rushing life and profound consequences." - USA Today

Octavia Butler - Wild Seed

"Moving, frightening, fun, and eerily beautiful." - Washington Post Book World

Leila Aboulela - Bird Summons

"A magic carpet ride into the forest of history and the lives of women. Playful, profound, and moving." - Lucy Ellman, author of Ducks, Newburyport
