Griffin (The Enemy of My Enemy,) Robin Cook (Pandemic,) Nora Roberts (Of Blood and Bone,) Joanne M. Harris (A Pocketful of Crows,) and J. A. Jance (Field of Bones.)  We also have a selection of works by less familiar authors.  Mathias Enard’s Tell Them of Battles, Kings, & Elephants imagines that Michelangelo traveled to Constantinople to design a bridge for the sultan (a proposal he – according to legend – rejected in real life.)  Little, by Edward Carey, creates a fictionalized account of the life of Marie Tussaud, famous for her waxwork exhibits.  Get a look inside a Japanese newsroom as a group of reporters struggle to uncover the truth behind a tragic story in Hideo Yokoyama’s Seventeen.  Ahmed Ismail Yusuf writes of the lives of the people of Somalia – both in conflict and in peace – in The Lion’s Binding Oath.  Finally, read about a girl’s experiences at a sinister school that may be teaching magic in Sergey and Marina Dyachenko’s Vita Nostra.
