JUST ARRIVED  We’re looking at history via biography and autobiography this week.  Silent Witness examines the Civil War literally through the lens of its photographers and the images they captured.  You can learn how a sideshow showman saved premature babies with the invention and exhibition of the incubator in The Strange Case of Dr. Couney, or ride along with a New York City ambulance worker in the 1960s with Bad Call.  Many wealthy American women left home to marry into the title-rich but money-poor British aristocracy around the turn of the 20th century; Anne de Courcy talks about some of their stories in The Husband Hunters.  A few decades later, a few daring women flew in the dangerous but very popular air races of the 1920s and 1930s.  Keith O’Brien’s Fly Girls looks the careers of five of them.  In the arts, the late violinist and conductor Robert Mann wrote a memoir entitled A Passionate Journey, and in The Girl on the Balcony Olivia Hussey, who played Juliet in the 1968 film version of Romeo and Juliet, looks back on her life.  You can also check out new novels by Susan Mallery (When We Found Home, Kristan Higgins (Good Luck with That,) Susan MacNeal (The Prisoner in the Castle,) Donna Andrews (Toucan Keep a Secret,) Linwood Barclay (A Noise Downstairs,) Jonathan Kellerman (A Measure of Darkness,) Sandra Brown (Tailspin,) Stuart Woods (The Money Shot,) and Rhys Bowen (Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding.)
