FICTION


Age of Vice by Deepti Kapoor

“Kapoor’s frenetic and colorful novel highlights the new global pecking order, one forged by capitalism, in which the rich always win.”— Booklist, starred review

“Deeply addictive; this spellbinder would be easy to devour in one big gulp, but it’s worth savoring for Neda’s uncompromising take on what she terms India’s ‘losing age, the age of vice.’ The author possesses a talent great enough to match the massive scope of her subject.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Distant Thunder by Stuart Woods

“Published not quite three months after his death, this is Woods’ sixty-third Stone Barrington novel (but possibly not the last, as at least one more appears to be in the pipeline)… somehow Woods managed to keep the characters fresh, the escapist plots interesting enough, and the villains intriguing. This one checks all the boxes.” —Booklist, starred review

Jackal by Erin E. Adams

’This novel is an artfully crafted genre-blender, combining a formidable amount of suspense and horror with a true mystery at its core, and bearing a stinging social indictment. It is a mighty exploration of where the metaphorical meets the real, an important work from a new voice, a first-generation Haitian American.”— Booklist, starred review

Racing the Light by Robert Crais

“No one does the bromance buddy genre better than Crais, and he always keeps it fresh and timely. This is the nineteenth outing for the PI duo, in a series that began with The Monkey’s Raincoat in 1987, and Cole and Pike are still relentless, with their humanity, remarkably, fully intact.”— Booklist, starred review

“This fascinating biography shows that Lincoln was a man with vices as well as many virtues. Meacham’s writing is illuminating, and his sources help with that. ”— Library Journal, starred review

“Pulitzer winner Meacham (His Truth Is Marching On) more than justifies yet another Lincoln biography in this nuanced and captivating look at the president’s “struggle to do right as he defined it within the political universe he and his country inhabited.”— Publishers Weekly, starred review

“While there are countless books on Lincoln, one of the most studied and written-about figures in history, Meacham’s latest will undoubtedly become one of the most widely read and consulted.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

My First Popsicle: An Anthology of Food and Feelings Edited by Zosia Mamet

“Actor Mamet’s project springs from her idea that, of the bare necessities we need to survive (air, water, sleep, food), food stands alone in its ability to create emotions, memories, and connections. Contributed by fellow actors, writers, chefs, and other creators, 50 essays prove Mamet’s point and then some across a whole spectrum of feelings and flavors.” —Booklist, starred review

 Lucy by the Sea by Elizabeth Strout; read by Kimberly Farr

“To listen is to settle in with familiar old friends; Strout even provides glimpses of other Maine favorites Bob Burgess and, of course, Olive Kitteridge. Throughout, Farr’s agile sensitivity guarantees nods, guffaws, tears . . . and joy.”— Booklist, starred review

“With perfectly modulated tones, Farr depicts Strout’s awkward, frail, and flawed characters while allowing listeners to glimpse the powerful emotions that threaten to overwhelm them. Although many of Lucy’s recollections tread familiar ground, listeners will be pleased to revisit her world through Farr’s exquisite narration.” —Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
