Late Editions

November 18, 2023

As we approach the holiday season, there are some stellar books still to come. This week, two novels tackle a group effort to save the world. In one, travel back to the future in an exploration of the pitfalls of greed; in another, a rising star returns with an investigation into the consequences of dropping out of society. Plus, we have two notable novels in translation from international writers, and a major new biography of an American classic. Also—congratulations! To the National Book Award winner for Fiction: Justin Torres.

Happy reading,
