JUST ARRIVED In adult fiction, we have the latest novels by Haruki Murakami and Nick Harkaway. For children, we have the delicious new book All Four Stars and the exciting Legend of Zelda graphic novels. Teens can choose among the romance in Like No Other, the verse of Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling – who share the same illness but have vastly different coping methods – and the historical struggle for voting equality in Deborah Wiles’s Revolution. New in DVDs this week: a trio of documentaries revolving around storytelling. This American Journey features two men – one an actor from England, the other a photographer from Australia – seeking out the unique American character by asking questions of the people they meet on a cross-country trip. Listening is an Act of Love is a collection of six conversations gathered by StoryCorps. Finally, I Know That Voice spotlights the actors behind your favorite animated characters and investigates how they bring those characters to life.
