A Naturalist at Large: The Best Essays of Bernd Heinrich

Recommended for collections with strengths in biology or natural science. ["This compelling collection will appeal to those interested in natural history or the environment of northern New England": LJ 3/15/18 review of the Houghton Harcourt hc.]

Printer's Error:

The purchase of the printed book is recommended over that of the audiobook. ["Written in an engaging, accessible style, these accounts will appeal to fans of Pawn Stars, as well as scholars of literature and printing history": LJ 2/1/17 review of the Harper hc.]

All Over the Place: Adventures in Travel, True Love, and Petty Theft

An excellent memoir that will appeal to fans of Sarah Vowell. Highly recommended for all collections.

The Girl in the Garden

Recommended for book clubs and fans of character-driven fiction. Public libraries should strongly consider purchase.

Night of Fire

Despite a less than ideal narration, this is recommended for those who enjoyed David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas or other novels composed of interconnected short stories.

Prisoners of Our Thoughts: Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work

Recommended for readers who are experiencing a "crisis of meaning" or who are interested in psychology. This book would be a good companion to Harold Kushner's When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between)

Given the expected popularity, this is recommended for all public libraries.

The Heart Goes Last

Atwood's popularity is likely to lead to high demand in public libraries. Fans of the author's "MaddAddam" trilogy may enjoy.

Another Woman's Daughter

This heartfelt novel is a sure bet for book clubs and public libraries.
