Finding Time Again by Marcel Proust; Translated from the French by Ian Patterson

“With this sublime translation of Proust’s final volume of the magisterial In Search of Lost Time, Patterson concludes a project that began with Lydia Davis’s translation of Swann’s Way in 2004. In his exceptional final installment, Proust recaptures the reveries, ambitions, and moments in time that divide people’s inner worlds from the mysteries of others. Whether for the curious or the devoted, this is the definitive version with which to conclude Proust’s masterpiece.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

In the Upper Country by Kai Thomas

“Thomas’s mesmerizing debut explores freedom, family, and the interconnections between white, Black, and Indigenous communities in 1859 Canada….Thomas amplifies the women’s stories with excerpts from a collection of enslaved people’s narratives, while stories of Black Canadians during the War of 1812; and the American enslaved people who settled Dunmore add to the vivid tapestry. At once intimate and majestic, Thomas’s ambitious work heralds a bright new voice.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

They’re Going to Love You by Meg Howrey

 “Howrey goes back and forth between Carlisle’s present and her past…landing, like a flawless jeté, on the side of pitch-perfect poignancy. Howrey, a former dancer who joined the Joffrey Ballet when she was just a teenager, writes as movingly about the world of dance as any living author. Even better is her incisive and effortless writing about relationships—between parent and child, between queer lovers—in all their complex mess and beauty. ‘Agony is ordinary,’ thinks Carlisle—this novel is anything but.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A poignant family story of alienation, regret, and desire…Howrey expertly builds tension, leading the reader to feel alongside Carlisle both the draw of ballet and her anxiety about her reunion with her father. It’s a breathtaking performance.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[A] novel about devotion, art, and love in many forms…Howrey’s prose invites readers to feel the emotion of each dance, beautifully translating physical and visual art onto the page…Howrey’s incisive character studies create a heart-wrenching story of love and loss.” Booklist, starred review

Tracers in the Dark by Andy Greenberg

“Fascinating and so enthralling…[A] highly recommended book.”Library Journal, starred review

“Greenberg examines in fascinating detail how criminals have employed technology for their nefarious ends…He brings to vivid life the assorted players, including the agents who cracked the crimes, those in law enforcement who succumbed to the allure of fast money on the dark web, and the private citizens who ushered in the golden age of cryptocurrency tracing. This is a must-have for the true crime shelf.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A sinuous, eminently readable story of the darker corners of cyberspace…  Reminiscent in all the best ways of Clifford Stoll’s Cuckoo’s Egg, smoothly blending crime writing with matters of the deepest techno-geekery. An absorbing work of true crime.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
