This book will interest both general readers and historians of medicine, and will remind readers of the long-term costs of the horrors of modern war.

The Last Days of Roger Federer: And Other Endings

Recommended for general collections, but probably has more appeal for older readers.


Recommended for academic libraries.

Readers will marvel at McCrae’s ability to achieve Miltonic scope with such economy of expression. His is an original voice well worth close reading.

More useful for specialists and historians than the general public but a valuable source for policy development during a confusing period.

The Fell

Is it too soon for pandemic-era novels? For anyone who can bear a reminder of lockdowns, masking, isolation, and social distancing while still living through them, this fast-paced gem is worth the novel exposure.

The Adventures of Herbie Cohen: World’s Greatest Negotiator

A fast-paced, clear-eyed view of a colorful character and a complicated father. Any library with Rich Cohen’s other works (or Herb Cohen’s best seller You Can Negotiate Anything) will find this a solid add for their collections.

Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance

This eminently farcical and jocular work reads like Planes, Trains and Automobiles meets, oddly enough, a John Waters movie; recommended for intrepid readers cognizant of satire.

This Body I Wore: A Memoir

Powerful and beautifully written, this is a mesmerizing memoir and will appeal to fans of Melissa Febos and Roxane Gay.
