Let's Get Lost

June 10, 2023

Three utterly absorbing works of fiction lead this week’s selection: a German novelist’s latest in an impeccable translation by Michael Hoffman; a stunning historical novel of India; and a heartbreaking book about a down-on-his-luck New Englander. We also have two nonfiction works about perception that bring levity to thorny topics. Once you start any of these five books, you are guaranteed to be lost in their worlds.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
