New and Forthcoming Nonfiction 9/13/17

Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self by Manoush Zomorodi

A memorial edition of Elie Wiesel’s seminal memoir of surviving the Nazi death camps, with tributes by President Obama and Samantha Power

A Disappearance in Damascus: Friendship and Survival in the Shadow of War by Deborah Campbell

“Campbell’s captivating writing allows readers to see inside the life of a foreign correspondent and the bonds forged and broken through investigative reporting.”–Booklist, starred review

Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan’s Disaster Zone by Richard Lloyd Parry

“The stories that Parry gives voice to are not only deeply personal but they are accompanied with essential historical and cultural context that enable the reader to understand the roles of death, grief, and responsibility in Japanese culture—and why some survivors may always remain haunted.”–Booklist, starred review

The Influential Mind: What the Brain Reveals About Our Power to Change Others by Tali Sharot

“A fascinating, accessible primer on what current research teaches us about the art of persuasion…An enjoyable read.”–Publishers Weekly
