New and Featured Books for 12/16/11:

Posted on

Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) added to our library collection…

FICTION:

The Affair by Lee Child

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Bonnie by Iris Johansen

The Man Who Smiled by Henning Mankell

Damned by Chuck Palahniuk.

A very unique homage to the works of Judy Blume. Here is the publisher’s official synopsis for the new book from the extremely popular cult author and here are reviews from The Washington Post and Gentlemen’s Quarterly. And an interview with Palahniuk in The Wall Street Journal.

The Best Of Me by Nicholas Sparks

How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu.

Selected Novels And Short Stories by Patricia Highsmith

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

I personally could not be more excited to have this book at our library. One of my favorite authors. Check out the review from The New York Review Of Books and in The New York Times. Picked by Amazon as the #2 (of 10) book of the year. We think you’ll find that this book is proof that literature matters.

Zone One by Colson Whitehead

NON-FICTION:

Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard

Death In The City Of Light: The Serial Killer Of Nazi-Occupied Paris by David King

A Savage Conflict: The Decisive Role Of Guerrillas In The American Civil War by Daniel E. Sutherland

Dear Cary: My Life With Cary Grant by Dyan Cannon

Ghost In The Wires: My Adventures As The World’s Most Wanted Hacker by Kevin Mitnick with William L. Simon

Our Overweight Children: What Parents, Schools, And Communities Can Do To Control The Fatness Epidemic by Sharron Dalton

My Song: A Memoir by Harry Belafonte with Michael Shnayerson

Should be a very interesting book and also seems to be the basis for the new Ken Burns documentary.

When A Billion Chinese Jump: How China Will Save Mankind – Or Destroy It by Jonathan Watts

Digging: The Afro-American Soul Of American Classical Music by Amiri Baraka

Nothing Bad Happens To Good Girls: Fear Of Crime In Women’s Lives by Esther Madriz
