“Lucky You” by Erika Carter

Carter’s wry debut novel is about three 20-somethings, Ellie, Chloe and Rachel, stuck in unfulfilling routines in rural Arkansas. When Rachel starts a relationship with a messianic boyfriend and decides to live off-grid to revitalize her life, Ellie and Chloe join her, and what follows is a darkly funny and melancholic look at the inevitable uncertainty of early adulthood.

“Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid

Set in an unnamed country during a civil war, this novel follows two migrants, Nadia and Saeed, who flee for Europe and the United States for a better life. Despite escaping danger at home, their new situation is anything but simple, as they juggle holding on to their past while struggling to assimilate to unfamiliar (and sometimes unwelcoming) cultures. Timely? Yeah, you could say that.

The only American to have edited French Vogue (1994-2001), Buck’s long-awaited memoir takes a thrilling look behind the scenes of her wildly glamorous life. Think famous friendships (like a lifelong one with Anjelica Huston), fashion-world scandals (like her controversial ouster from Vogue) and every kind of name drop under the sun (seriously—everyone from Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld to Tom Wolfe and Peter O’Toole).
