Week of July 8, 2019

Paperback releases for the week of July 8th include THE MASTERPIECE, in which Fiona Davis takes readers into the glamorous lost art school within Grand Central Terminal, where two very different women, 50 years apart, strive to make their mark on a world set against them; THE LINE THAT HELD US by David Joy, a remarkable novel about the cover-up of an accidental death, and the dark consequences that reverberate through the lives of four people who will never be the same again; Allie Rowbottom's JELL-O GIRLS, a memoir that braids the evolution of one of America's most iconic branding campaigns with the stirring tales of the women who lived behind its facade --- told by the inheritor of their stories; and A TERRIBLE COUNTRY by Keith Gessen, the first novel in over a decade from a founding editor of n+1 and the author of ALL THE SAD YOUNG LITERARY MEN, a literary triumph about Russia, family, love and loyalty.
