Week of April 12, 2021

Paperback releases for the week of April 12th include ALL ADULTS HERE by Emma Straub, a warm, funny and keenly perceptive novel about the life cycle of one family --- as the kids become parents, grandchildren become teenagers, and a matriarch confronts the legacy of her mistakes; BECOMING DUCHESS GOLDBLATT, which is part memoir and part joyful romp through the fields of imagination, as the story behind a beloved pseudonymous Twitter account reveals how a writer deep in grief rebuilt a life worth living; THESE WOMEN by Ivy Pochoda, a serial killer story like you’ve never seen before --- a literary thriller of female empowerment and social change; and WHY WE SWIM, in which New York Times contributor Bonnie Tsui, a swimmer herself, dives into the deep, from the San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, to investigate what about water --- despite its dangers --- seduces us and why we come back to it again and again.
