Bookstore Picks


August 7, 2021

This week highlights two mysteries: an impressive contemporary debut that seems as though it was written in another era and one from a tried and true bestselling author. There is also some terrific fiction from Asian and Asian American writers publishing this month—voices from China, Japan, Iran, and Korea. I’ve pulled out just a few of my favorites.

Happy reading,
