6 New Books to Read This Fall

City on Fire

If you’re intrigued by the book that everyone’s talking about… 
Read newcomer Garth Risk Hallberg’s City on Fire. Also good if you’re nostalgic for New York in the ’70s, love Dickens or just have a lot of time on your hands. (It’s 900 pages.)

Why Not Me

If you want a new girl crush... 
Read Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me?, which offers a healthy mix of sincerity, sarcasm, self-deprecation and self-affirmation. (Also, a solid reverence for Mickey D’s.)

M Train

If you miss liner notes...
Read Patti Smith’s new memoir, M Train, where the queen of cool waxes poetic on the realities of aging and the demons that still haunt her.

Girl Waits With Gun

If you love a kick-ass heroine…
Read Amy Stewart’s Girl Waits with Gun. This historical novel is set in 1914 and follows the raucous adventures of one of the country’s first female sheriffs as she sets out to convict a gang of criminals.

A Window Opens

If you want to feel better about yourself…
Read Elisabeth Egan’s A Window Opens, a fun, all-too-relatable novel about the age-old quest for work/life balance.

A Brief History of Seven Killings

If you love Bob Marley...
Read Marlon James’s A Brief History of Seven Killings, an electric and ambitious novel that takes on 30 years of Jamaican history. Bonus: It just won the Man Booker Prize.
