Garth Risk Hallberg

City on Fire: A Novel

Jen

Trust me: This is the book everyone is going to be talking about this fall. For readers who loved
Bonfire of the Vanities and The Emperor’s Children, it is the kind of read you just fall into and inhabit
the pages. Set in 1970s New York, it is a novel about love and betrayal and forgiveness, about art
and truth and rock ‘n’ roll, about how the people closest to us are sometimes the hardest to reach—
about what it means to be human. AND, did I mention, it is a first novel?

A Novel

While eagerly awaiting Steven
Spielberg’s movie adaptation
of Ready Player One, fans
this summer can snap up
Cline’s new pulse-pounding,
space opera adventure where
the battles are real and gamers must save the world from an alien invasion.
Zack Lightman’s teenage gamer world will be forever altered after
spotting a flying saucer. Will his videogame skills be enough to save
the earth from what’s about to befall it? While gleefully embracing,
and brilliantly subverting, science-fiction conventions, Armada exists
somewhere between Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game come to life
and the joyously self-unaware cult favorite film, Clerks.

Unspeakable Things:

Rules for Werewolves

A Novel

A strange, haunting, exhilarating debut
novel about survival and love in all its
forms: about sexual awakenings and
dark secrets, about European refugee
intellectuals who’ve fled Hitler’s armies
with dreams intact and who have come
to an elusive new (American) “can-do,
will-do” world they cannot seem to find.

A story about a band of drifters, outcasts, and refugees making their way in
the world and also a dark and violent
vision of a society coming together and
falling apart. Yet, an unexpectedly funny
book, rich with pop culture references
and written entirely in dialogue.

A Refuge at Highland
Hall: A Novel

One Man’s Flag

The final book in Turansky’s Edwardian
Brides series. But as the lead characters
in the major romance plot are not the
same as the first or second books, it can
be read as a standalone. Wartime has
come to Europe and the Ramsey family
must weather the changes to the
England they love in this novel for fans of
Downton Abbey.

History and Warning

This is the story of how Sawant toppled
a 16-year incumbent backed by a powerful Democratic Party and reshaped
Seattle’s political culture around demands for economic and social justice,
reviving national debate around municipal socialism in the process.

In this epic, haunting, deeply researched,
and profoundly original book the
acclaimed author of Bloodlands argues
that our world is much closer to Hitler’s
than we might imagine, in the growing
preoccupations with food and water and
in the destabilization of a previous world

Shame and Wonder: Essays

Tough As They Come:

Formerly a writer of literary horror, David
Searcy had essentially given up writing
before he found himself drawn back—
this time, to nonfiction—in his late sixties.
This collection of twenty one essays is a
work of true grace, wisdom, and joy.

A Memoir

In this powerful combat memoir, retired
paratrooper and quadruple amputee,
SSG Travis Mills, describes how his
Christian faith and his mantra of “Never
Give Up—Never Quit” has helped him
rebuild his life. Travis is one of only five
quadruple amputees from the Iraq/
Afghanistan war. The book takes readers
behind enemy lines to show them the
horrors and triumphs of war.
