SIX FOUR by Hideo Yokohama (February 26 issue)
“Superb… This novel is a real, out-of-the-blue original. I’ve never read anything like it. Yokoyama has written five previous novels and several collections of short fiction, and this is his first book to be translated into English… On the evidence of SIX FOUR, he’s a master.” — Terrence Rafferty

THE DARK FLOOD RISES by Margaret Drabble (February 19 issue)
“This humane and masterly novel by one of Britain’s most dazzling writers is…deeper than mere philosophy: a praisesong for the magical human predicament exactly as it has been ordained on Earth.” — Cynthia Ozick readmoreremove

Happy Valentine’s #BookBday

Let one of these new books be your Valentine today:

THE DARK FLOOD RISES by Margaret Drabble
Three starred reviews for this novel about a highly regarded expert on housing for the elderly who is herself getting on in age. “For women of a certain age, it is a pure pleasure to grow older alongside Drabble. For all others, there’s plenty of joy to be had in this thoughtful meditation on aging and mortality.” — Library Journal, starred review

INSOMNIAC CITY by Bill Hayes
A Barnes & Noble Spring 2017 Discover Great New Writers pick!

DROP THE BALL: Achieving More by Doing Less by Tiffany Dufu, with a foreword by Gloria Steinem
A bold and inspiring memoir and manifesto from a renowned voice in the women’s leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive: the ability to let go. “DROP THE BALL will likely be dubbed by many as the heir apparent to LEAN IN… But there are key differences between Dufu and Sandberg that are likely to make DROP THE BALL resonate with a more diverse circle of women. Her message is not only refreshing, but long overdue.” — The Daily Beast readmoreremove

A surefire winner for any mystery or suspense fan. ” — Library Journal, starred review

“The sweeping epic, which covers decades of Walkaway life—despite some difficult-to-read but entirely believable character trauma—is ultimately suffused with hope.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
