Week of August 10, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of August 10th include THE OTHER MRS. by Mary Kubica, a psychological thriller about a couple, Sadie and Will Foust, whose tiny coastal island is rocked by the death of their neighbor, Morgan Baines --- and as the eyes of suspicion turn toward them, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of what really happened to Morgan; CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, Hallie Ephron's novel about a professional organizer with a deadly problem that she may not be able to clean up; THIS CHAIR ROCKS, Ashton Applewhite's rousing manifesto calling for an end to discrimination and prejudice on the basis of age; and BARNUM: An American Life, the first major biography of P.T. Barnum in a generation, in which Robert Wilson captures the full genius, infamy and allure of the ebullient showman, who, from birth to death, repeatedly reinvented himself.
