September 2018 Stars!

We’re seeing stars for these forthcoming new books:

EVENING IN PARADISE: More Stories by Lucia Berlin
“Wonderful… Berlin’s writing achieves a dreamy, delightful effect as it provides a look back through time. This collection should further bolster Berlin’s reputation as one of the strongest short story writers of the 20th century.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Blessedly, a second volume with 22 more stories is in no way second rate but rather features more seductive, sparkling autofiction with narrators whose names echo the author’s in settings and situations that come from her roller-coaster biography (which is summarized in an appendix). No dead author is more alive on the page than Berlin: funny, dark, and so in love with the world.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

INVISIBLE: The Forgotten Story of the Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America’s Most Powerful Mobster by Stephen L. Carter
Also available in audio
“In the same vein as best sellers such as Liza Mundy’s CODE GIRLS and Margot Lee Shetterly’s HIDDEN FIGURES, this new work from Carter presents the untold story of his grandmother Eunice Hunton Carter, the black female lawyer who prosecuted notorious mobster Lucky Luciano. With artful storytelling and a narrative-like delivery, Carter tells Eunice’s story in the best way possible, offering a compelling, unputdownable read with as much value in social history as legal appeal. Not to be missed.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove

NEWCOMER by Keigo Higashino, translated by Giles Murray
A Library Journal Fall 2018 Editors’ Pick! In international bestseller Keigo Higashino’s new crime novel, newly transferred Tokyo Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga (from LibraryReads pick, MALICE) is assigned to a baffling murder in which the number of suspects keeps multiplying. “Part Sherlock Holmes, part Harry Bosch, Higashino’s hero is a quietly majestic force to be reckoned with. Here’s hoping his demotion continues to bring him to the attention of readers from East to West.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
