WE ARE PIRATES by Daniel Handler

“Can a couple of teenagers, a befuddled old man, and a nursing home orderly really steal a boat and wreak havoc in San Francisco harbor? Sure, says Handler, crossing and mixing genres dark and light, YA yarn and midlife doldrum while making readers root for his 20th-century privateers A jaunty and occasionally jolting, and honest take on the discomforts of youth, midlife, and old age, and how ineffective we are at dealing with them.”–Publishers Weekly

Available on NetGalley. To be pre-approved for an e-galley, please email library@macmillanusa.com with the subject “We Are Pirates.”

A MURDER OF MAGPIES by Judith Flanders

Flanders’ deliciously fun debut novel set in the world of book publishing introduces readers to an enormously enjoyable, too-smart-for-her-own-good new amateur sleuth, as well as a colorful cast of characters, including the handsome inspector Field.

FIND ME by Laura van den Berg

“Van den Berg’s highly anticipated debut novel is about a young woman named Joy who is in quarantine at a psychiatric hospital because her blood might hold the key to a cure and a vaccine against a highly contagious disease that’s rampaging across the country. Brooding, acutely observant, compassionate, suspicious, wistful, and wryly funny, Joy is an entrancing and sympathetic narrator through which van den Berg can channel her abiding fascination with what is submerged, hidden, lurking, lost.”–Booklist, starred review

MAKING NICE by Matt Sumell

“From the first page, Sumell’s exceptional novel in stories unleashes one of the most comically arresting voices this side of Sam Lipsyte’s HOMELAND. Sumell’s debut demonstrates an almost painful compassion for the sinner in most of us, making MAKING NICE even more fun than eavesdropping in a confession booth.”–Publishers Weekly

THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES by Sally Hepworth

Neva Bradley refuses to reveal the details of her own pregnancy (including the father’s identity), which unsettles her mother, Grace, while reminding grandmother Floss of her own situation 60 years previously.
