Library Column–June 6, 2005

New Fiction

Just in: The History of Love by Nicole Kraus is a remarkable story of an unpublished book that crosses time and lives. Getting rave reviews from our local readers: My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Hitler’s Peace by Philip Kerr is an alternative history of the Allied Conference in Teheran in 1943. More alternate history, this time from Isabel Allende: Zorro. Anyone addicted to books with recipes: try The Baker’s Apprentice by Judith Ryan Hendricks (continues the story begun in Bread Alone)

New Non-Fiction

Neoconomy: George Bush’s Revolutionary Gamble with America’s Future by Daniel Altman – his take seems to be, it will be great if it works! For another approach to predicting the future, possibly more reliable, read The Tarot: History, Symbolism and Divination by Robert M. Place. Did you know that the classic movie "The African Queen" was based on a real historical incident? Read all about it in Mimi and Toutou’s Big Adventure: The Bizarre Battle of Lake Tanganyika by Giles Foden.

New Audiobooks

On tape: 1st to Die by James Patterson and Sick Puppy by Carl Hiaasen. On CD: The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith; Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell; The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason and The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd.
