From the Publisher

Is this what my life has become… Selling novelty items to couples? Yes, I’d have to say this is my new life.

I walked away from it all—the job and the hot boss. The problem is I still want the guy, and I still blush when I have to say penis. Not as much these days, but my cheeks still tinge pink from time to time when I say it around just the right person. Him—specifically.

Life is confusing as I know my heart is elsewhere. I shouldn’t have walked away that night, just because he thought I was a stripper. That’s the easy answer. The reality is I messed up and fell in love with him and panicked. This lifestyle would never be accepted by his friends, which means walking away was the best thing I could’ve done. I’ll accept being his friend and only that.

It was more like a series of observations by a narrator as she traveled to Greece to teach writing. The people she met along the way essentially became the subjects of miniature profiles craf

Crimes of the Heart

S.B. Like many of his novels, Spanish author Javier Marías’ new book, Thus Bad Begins, isn’t exactly a mystery, though it is mysterious. Here, the 65-year-old perennial Nobel favorite tells the story of Juan de Vere, a young man working for a film director, Eduardo Muriel. The older man assigns his apprentice the task of finding out a secret about a longtime friend. Meanwhile, de Vere is intrigued by the cold relationship between Muriel and his depressed wife Beatriz—at some point in their past, she did something unforgivable, also a secret, and de Vere wants to find out what.

Our Book Critic’s 5 Most Anticipated

AGAINST EVERYTHING: ESSAYS SEPT. 6, BY MARK GREIF Following on the heels of last year’s ambitious, if somewhat clunkily titled The Age of the Crisis of Man: Thought and Fiction in America, 1933–1973, Grief’s new book collects more than a decade’s worth of provocations from a founder of n+1. In it, he traces the arc of a young intellectual through the Bush and Obama administrations, from the gym to the ramparts. SUBSTITUTE: GOING TO SCHOOL WITH A THOUSAND KIDS SEPT. 6, BY NICHOLSON BAKER Baker is an obsessive with immense powers of observation, a strong social conscience, and, as those fam
