JUST ARRIVED Looking for the latest novel by your favorite author? We have Louise Penny’s newest Chief Inspector Gamache novel, Kingdom of the Blind, Clive Cussler's Sea of Greed, Stuart Woods's A Delicate Touch, James Patterson's Liar Liar, and John Lescroart's The Rule of Law. You might also want to try David R. Gillham's Annelies, which imagines what might have happened if Anne Frank had lived, or Jerome Charyn's The Perilous Adventures of the Cowboy King, which tells about Teddy Roosevelt's life in the finest pulp tradition. In nonfiction, check out film star Jackie Chan's new autobiography, Never Grow Up, or Katherine Smyth's meditation on Virginia Woolf, All the Lives We Ever Lived. Joshua D. Mezrich reflects on his life as a transplant surgeon in When Death Becomes Life, while Pam Houston tells about her life and land in the Colorado Rockies with Deep Creek, and Dorothy Butler Gilliam shares her work as the first black woman reporter at the Washington Post in Trailblazer. Learn about a world you never see in natural caves and man-made tunnels alike with Will Hunt's Underground and travel to Afghanistan for the story of a conservation program you might never have heard of in Alex Dehgan's The Snow Leopard Project. Finally, learn to ditch your perfectionist instincts and accept yourself just as you are with Haemin Sunim's Love for Imperfect Things.
