SMOKE: A Novel
A wildly imaginative, irresistibly page-turning novel set in an alternate historical England,
in which the emission of smoke marks the sinful and poor. Smoke is a narrative tour de force,
a tale of Dickensian intricacy, richly atmospheric and intensely suspenseful. This is a book
to savor!

debut novel from one of the most successful screenwriters of the past twenty

number of people who want him dead.

A stunning debut from a new talent with
more than thirty years’ experience in the
Atlanta police department. On her first
day as a newly minted homicide detective, Sarah “Salt” Alt is given the cold
case murder of a blues musician with
stunning new evidence that comes from
a man who Salt herself put behind bars.

BLACK RABBIT HALL

A brilliant, hilarious, and at times shocking
debut that simultaneously skewers the
body image-obsessed culture that tells
women they have no value outside their
physical appearance, and delivers a
tender and moving depiction of a lovable
young woman whose life is hijacked by
her struggle to conform.

A magnetic debut novel of wrenching
family secrets, forbidden love, and heartbreaking loss housed within the grand
gothic manor of Black Rabbit Hall.

follows a group of Ukrainian students
who become obsessed with a strategy
game that catches the eye of the KGB—
who do not like what they find. Leaping
between the collapse of the Soviet

all too timely vision of authoritarianism

Imitation has a riveting, secret-driven dual
narrative that sweeps readers into a
privileged Manhattan socialite’s restless
life and the affair with a mysterious painter
that upends her world, flashing back to
her years at Vassar and the friendship that
brought her to the brink of ruin. Perfect for
book groups exploring topics of forbidden
love, societal pressure, the complicated
nature of female friendships, and the cost of happiness.

I LET YOU GO

A Novel

The smash London Times bestseller,
with over 250,000 copies sold….a twisty,
psychological thriller with “an astonishing
intensity that drags you in and never—
ever—lets you go.” (Daily Mail, UK)

Joan Didion meets Elena Ferrante in this
lively, sexy, and moving novel set on the
idyllic Spanish coast. Blanca is forty years
old and motherless. Shocked at the
unexpected loss of the most important
person in her life, she suddenly realizes
that she has no idea what her future will
look like. Busquets faces head-on the
depths and dilemmas of grief, as well as
the complexities of a woman’s relationship to sex, marriage, and
motherhood, with both humor and honesty.

THE PORTABLE VEBLEN:

JANE AND THE
WATERLOO MAP

A Novel

Set in and around Palo Alto, amid the
culture clash of new money and old
(antiestablishment) values, and with the
specter of our current wars looming
across its pages, The Portable Veblen is
an unforgettable look at the way we live
now. Throughout, Elizabeth McKenzie
asks: Where do our families end and we
begin? How do we stay true to our
ideals? And what is that squirrel really thinking?

November, 1815. Jane goes to London
to visit her ailing, nearly bankrupt brother, Henry Austen, and intercede on his
behalf to his debtors at the Prince
Regent’s estate. But as she enters Carlton House, she stumbles upon a dying
man in the library whose last words are
“the Waterloo map” ... and soon Jane is
on the hunt for a treasure of incalculable
value, and a killer of considerable cunning.

From the internationally bestselling author
of the Harry Hole novels comes this
short, lyrical tale of a man on the run from
a crime lord’s deadly retribution, lost far
beyond the Arctic Circle, where the sun
remains in the sky for months on end.

This is a contemporary rendering of The
Merchant of Venice, one of Shakespeare’s
most famous comedies, and now set in
England’s South Manchester, featuring
rich heiresses, art collectors, footballers,
and more. Jacobson’s vision promises
more than just a pound of flesh with the
drama, irony, and tragedy that gave the
original play its fame.

Elizabeth, “Sisi.” Set against the backdrop

the beloved “Fairy Queen,” and a Golden
Age for Europe.

Bestselling, high-profile author, Chevalier
immerses us in American pioneer life with

and the get-rich-quick culture of goldrush San Francisco in 1850s. She weaves
deep research into a fleet narrative and
even includes real historical figures, like

ROGUE JUSTICE:

JOE GOULD’S TEETH

The Making of the Security State

From New Yorker staff writer and
Harvard historian Jill Lepore, the story of
the discovery of Joe Gould’s long-lost
manuscript, “The Oral History of Our
Time,” and of the violence, betrayals,
and madness that led to its concealment.

A deeply reported look at how the
architects of the War on Terror transformed
the Department of Justice into an arm of
the intelligence community—hijacking an
institution charged with upholding the
Constitution and the rule of law and
using it as legal cover for mass
surveillance and torture. Karen J.
Greenberg is Director of the Center on
National Security at Fordham University School of Law and is the
author of The Least Worst Place: Guantanamo’s First 100 Days.
