JUST ARRIVED This week we’re showcasing The Wonder by Emma Donoghue, author of The Room; Harlan Coben 11th Myron Bolitar novel Home; and Craig Johnson’s latest Longmire mystery, An Obvious Fact. M. C. Beaton, Ann Patchett, Karin Slaughter, Jennifer Chiaverini, and Clive Cussler also all have new novels out and on our shelves. If none of those catch your interest, why not try out an author making their debut this month? Nathan Hill’s The Nix features a son puzzling out the truth of his activist mother’s life, while Forrest Leo’s The Gentleman follows a Victorian poet who accidentally sells his wife to the Devil and strikes out to get her back. Over in nonfiction we have a focus on science and history. The Tide looks at how people have interpreted the cyclical rising and falling of water through the ages as well as the scientific explanation, while Sun Moon Earth performs the same service for solar eclipses. Sticking with the cosmic, try How to Build a Spaceship, which tells the story of the recent quest for commercial spaceflight. Back on Earth, pick up The Hidden Life of Trees to explore an unseen world around, above, and below us. For evolution of a different sort, check out Words on the Move and find out how the English language has changed and continues to change. Finally, for a more classical view of history, read a new account of the Pax Romana.
