One of Us Knows

Cole mixes a spooky, isolated setting with a hint of the gothic and a storyline that isn’t afraid to tackle tough social issues, and creates a book that is both entertaining and insightful.

The Killing Ground: A Biography of Thermopylae

The book focuses on how Thermopylae constrained battles and those who fought them. Along the way, a number of myths are debunked. Well-handled, but military history enthusiasts will probably be drawn to it the most.


Unique and important fiction following 2007’s Open City and several significant nonfiction volumes; highly recommended.

My Three Lives: A Memoir

Cole looks back on her life and career fondly, but she doesn’t shy away from the parts that were challenging and less than idyllic, making this a compelling read.

What’s Eating Us: Women, Food, and the Epidemic of Body Anxiety

This work will appeal to readers who enjoy memoirs and general nonfiction, but Kadzin’s conversational tone and writing style make this book accessible to all readers.

Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel

Like many fitness and diet influencers, Cole uses phrases such as “you can’t heal a body you hate” in ways that feel reductive and rewords standard practices, such as food elimination or a 21-day food plan, that are already endemic in the diet industry.

Draw Me After: Poems

Coming from Cole’s fascination with word play and paradox, the best of these poems are laced with alliteration and rhyme, shape-shifting as they focus on the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the creative process. For poetry readers who like pondering deep questions.

A Fearless Heart

Detailed, tender, compelling, and a grand read, this ninth in the series, after Breathless in the Dark, will thrill fans of Joanna Bourne’s “Spymaster” books.

Cartooning Made Easy: Circle, Triangle, Square; Draw Unique Cartoon Characters Using Simple Geometric Shapes
