Hey hey, it’s your #BookBday!

BOOMER1 by Daniel Torday
“After his academic job search, his journalistic career, and his marriage proposal go down in flames, an angry young man moves into his mother’s basement and starts a radical movement that pits millennials against baby boomers. Stylishly written, cleverly observed, and boldly imagined.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE BUS ON THURSDAY by Shirley Barrett
Also available in audio
Bridget Jones meets The Exorcist in this wickedly funny, dark novel about one woman’s post-cancer retreat to a remote Australian town and the horrors awaiting her. “Eleanor’s voice is bold, frank, and savagely funny. Her observations about the intersections of cancer culture and the rom-com ideology of a certain kind of 21st-century feminism are so keen as to draw blood.” — Kirkus Reviews

In 1988, Spenser Collins—an African American premed student and athlete from Chicago—is “punched” to join the Delphic Club, one of Harvard’s most prestigious social groups. But when Spenser and his friend uncover a hidden inner circle within the club known as the “Ancient Nine” and realize it’s related to a disappearance in the 1920s, they realize their own lives are in danger. “Those seeking an inside look at an Ivy League secret society will get their money’s worth.” — Publishers Weekly

The propulsive third novel in a new contemporary trilogy about unforgettable love, scorching desire, and dangerous secrets. “A suspenseful page-turner with a hint of romance, the follow-up to SEDUCING ABBY RHODES is an intricate, fast-paced story filled with danger, love, and characters the reader will love to hate.” — Booklist

DEVIATION by Luce D’Eramo, translated by Anne Milano Appel
In this complex and intricately structured work of fiction, a devoted fascist changes her mind and her life after witnessing the horrors of the Holocaust. “Powerful and provocative… D’Eramo vividly conveys the cruelty and wretchedness of war. An excellent translator’s note from Appel clarifies the sometimes confusing chronology of events and the mix of memoir and fiction in this audacious novel.” Publishers Weekly
