Week of March 11, 2019

Paperback releases for the week of March 11th include BEAUTIFUL DAYS, a new collection from Joyce Carol Oates, whose diverse stories explore the most secret, intimate and unacknowledged interior lives of characters not unlike ourselves, who assert their independence in acts of bold and often irrevocable defiance; GREEKS BEARING GIFTS by the late Philip Kerr, in which a vicious murder puts Bernie Gunther on the trail of World War II criminals in Greece; Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar's debut novel, THE MAP OF SALT AND STARS, the story of two girls living 800 years apart --- a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker; and MR. FLOOD'S LAST RESORT, Jess Kidd's spellbinding tale of a lonely caregiver and a cranky hoarder with a house full of secrets.
