The matrix of characters from A Visit from the Goon Squad is back! (And while it's not necessary to have read Jennifer Egan's prior Pulitzer prize winning novel, it certainly wouldn't hurt ...) In The Candy House, Egan offers sketches of life in a society hurtling toward inexorability, where increasingly elaborate manifestations of reality are fueled by new technology. It's the near future, it's the past, it's the present, it's the search for the authentic -- it's more of Jennifer Egan's magnificent storytelling. --Elese

Museums play an intractable role in cultural theft and the maintenance of cultural supremacy of the Western world. What can a small group of Chinese-American college students even do to address this? Steal their art back, of course. In the style of a classic heist novel, Will Chen and his friends are given a mission to steal back Chinese art that had been stolen centuries before, swayed by a payout of $50 million and the promise to make history. Unbelievably charismatic and immensely compelling, this book drew me in and refused to let go. On every page, I found myself cheering for their victories and anxious over their failures. This is an amazing book by a promising new talent, and I cannot explain enough how much you need to read this. --Jordan

A woman running for the US senate, a son who's floundering in academia and in his love life, and a daughter who's off protesting in France and beginning a relationship with a dangerous right-winger--what could possibly go wrong?! It's safe to say that no one writes family dysfunction quite like Grant Ginder. Hilarious, shocking, and astoundingly entertaining, you'll read this book in one sitting and be devastated when it's over. --Jennie

Small-town residents - dead, alive, missing and four-pawed - are the joyful heart of this unforgettable novel. Emma's quarter-life & family crises have brought her back home to sort herself out while looking after her senile father. Harnett's unique characters & quirky humor make dark stuff seem lighter and more manageable, a skill we all need to master these days. Highly recommended. --Maggie

Published: William Morrow - April 26th, 2022

I devoured this novel, couldn't put it down. Sure, it's a mob story but the characters and setting are slightly different- it's Rhode Island and of course Boston and NY are hovering in the background, but Winslow creates such believable, heartbreakingly likeable characters I couldn't help but be on the edge of my seat as they sorted out turf wars and otherwise navigated simply staying alive. I can't wait for the rest of this series! --Jamie
