The “funny, frenzied tale of a terrified man plummeting helplessly into his own adulthood” (Kids These Days); a passionate, nuanced drama about Southern race relations (The Secret of Magic); and a literate, dystopian love story (On Such a Full Sea): They are some of the recently published books we’re absorbing now that are some of the best books out at the moment. It’s cold out; keep the chill at bay by discovering one of these great new reads.
