Week of March 30, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of March 30th include THE BETTER SISTER, another twisty tale of domestic noir from Alafair Burke, which revolves around the murder of a prominent Manhattan lawyer, and the two estranged sisters --- one the dead man’s widow, the other his ex --- who must set aside mistrust and old resentments; MEMORIES OF THE FUTURE, a provocative novel about time, memory, desire and the imagination from Siri Hustvedt, who tells the story of a young Midwestern woman’s first year in New York City in the late 1970s and her obsession with her mysterious neighbor; EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE, a final volume of essays that showcase Oliver Sacks' broad range of interests --- from his passion for ferns, swimming and horsetails, to his final case histories exploring schizophrenia, dementia and Alzheimer's; and THE SUMMER GUESTS by Mary Alice Monroe, which is about the bonds and new beginnings that are born from disasters and how, even during the worst of circumstances --- or perhaps because of them --- we discover what is most important in life.
