              From the author of the jaunty, heartbreaking winner (People) and international bestseller Dear Mrs. Bird, a new charming and uplifting novel set in London during World War II about a plucky aspiring journalist. London, November 1941. Following the departure of the formidable Henr...ietta Bird from Woman's Friend magazine, things are looking up for Emmeline Lake as she takes on the challenge of becoming a young wartime advice columnist. Her relationship with boyfriend Charles (now stationed back in the UK) is blossoming, while Emmy's best friend Bunty, still reeling from the very worst of the Blitz, is bravely looking to the future. Together, the friends are determined to Make a Go of It. When the Ministry of Information calls on Britain's women's magazines to help recruit desperately needed female workers to the war effort, Emmy is thrilled to be asked to step up and help. But when she and Bunty meet a young woman who shows them the very real challenges that women war workers face, Emmy must tackle a life-changing dilemma between doing her duty and standing by her friends. Every bit as funny, heartwarming, and touching as Dear Mrs. Bird, Yours Cheerfully is a celebration of friendship--a testament to the strength of women and the importance of lifting each other up, even in the most challenging times.

              From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, perhaps the most bestselling and beloved literary fiction of our time, comes a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world, who find resilie...nce, hope, and story. The heroes of Cloud Cuckoo Land are trying to figure out the world around them: Anna and Omeir, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour in an attack on a public library in present day Idaho; and Konstance, on an interstellar ship bound for an exoplanet, decades from now. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of peril. An ancient text--the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky--provides solace and mystery to these unforgettable characters. Doerr has created a tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness--with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after we're gone. Dedicated to the librarians then, now, and in the years to come, Cloud Cuckoo Land is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship--of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

              From one of today's most brilliant and beloved novelists comes a dazzling, dramatic family saga set across a half-century--spanning World War I, the rise of Hitler, World War II, and years of exile--the story of the spectacular life and times of Europe's most famous writer, the N...obel Prize-winning literary giant, Thomas Mann. In a provincial German city at the turn of the 20th century, a young boy, Thomas Mann, grows up with a conservative, conventional father and a Brazilian mother, exotic and unpredictable. Mann, who will never fit in, hides both his artistic aspirations and his homosexual desires from his father, and his sexuality from everyone. He longs for a charismatic, rich, cultured young Jewish man, and marries his twin sister. He aches for a boy he sees on a beach in Venice and writes a novel about him. He is the most successful novelist of his time, and an extraordinarily complex and demanding husband and father. His oldest daughter and son, leaders of both Bohemianism and the anti-Nazi movement. share lovers. Two daughters marry famous writers themselves. We see the rise of Hitler, the exile of German writers and artists, Mann's narrow escape to America, his sojourn at Princeton, along with fellow exile Einstein, and his final move to LA in the late 1940s where he presided over a remarkable community of writers, artists, and musicians, even as his children court tragedy. As he did with Henry James in The Master, Toibin blends research and his boundless imagination to make us care deeply about this writer who lived a singular life of astonishing accomplishments, in times of vast upheaval. The Magician is Toibin's most magnificent and moving novel, an unforgettable portrait of a family and the artist at its helm, profoundly flawed, driven by desires he cannot satisfy, and fiercely engaged by the world. As Michael Cunningham said about The Master, Toibin takes us almost shockingly close to the mystery of art itself.

              Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He's a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he'll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq w...ar vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong? How about everything. This spectacular can't-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It's about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption. You won't put this story down, and you won't forget Billy.

              A kind of apocalyptic Super Size Me (The Guardian) that is both page turning and thoughtful (Financial Times) about prepper communities around the world that are building fortresses against an array of threats. Currently, 3.7 million Americans call themselves preppers. Millions m...ore prep without knowing it. Bradley Garrett, who began writing this book years before the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, argues that prepping is a rational response to global, social, and political systems that are failing to produce credible narratives of continued stability. Left with a sense of foreboding fueled by disease outbreaks, increasing government dysfunctionality, eroding critical infrastructure, nuclear brinksmanship, and an accelerating climate crisis, people all over the world are responding predictably--by hunkering down. Garrett traveled across four continents to meet those who are constructing panic rooms, building underground backyard survival chambers, stockpiling supplies, preparing go bags, hiding inflatable rafts, rigging mobile bugout vehicles, and burrowing deep into the earth. He has returned with a big-thinking, deep-diving, page-turning study of fear, privilege, and apocalypse (Robert Macfarlane, author of Underland) from the frontlines of the way we live now: an illuminating reflection on our age of disquiet and dread that brings our times into new and sharper focus. With scenes that are fascinating, amusing, crazy, chilling, and surreally topical (Douglas Preston, author of Lost City of the Monkey God), Garrett shows that the bunker is all around us: in malls, airports, gated communities, the vehicles we drive. Most of all, he reveals, it's in our minds.

              A charming, highly relatable graphic memoir about one woman's coming out and coming of age that brims with hope, and the joy that arises when one is finally ready to step out into the world (OprahMag.com). Ellie always had questions about who she was and how she fit in. As a girl..., she wore black, obsessed over Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and found dating boys much more confusing than many of her friends did. As she grew older, so did her fears and a deep sense of unbelonging. From her first communion to her first girlfriend via a swathe of self-denial, awkward encounters, and everyday courage, Ellie offers a fresh and funny self-portrait of a young woman becoming herself. This heartwarming, delightful memoir of self-discovery (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) reminds us that people sometimes come out not just once but again and again; that identity is not necessarily about falling in love with others, but about coming to terms with oneself. Full of vitality and humor, The Times I Knew I Was Gay will ring true for anyone who has taken the time to discover who they truly are.

              An epic, immersive debut, Damnation Spring is the deeply human story of a Pacific Northwest logging town wrenched in two by a mystery that threatens to derail its way of life. For generations, Rich Gundersen's family has chopped a livelihood out of the redwood forest along Califo...rnia's rugged coast. Now Rich and his wife, Colleen, are raising their own young son near Damnation Grove, a swath of ancient redwoods on which Rich's employer, Sanderson Timber Co., plans to make a killing. In 1977, with most of the forest cleared or protected, a grove like Damnation--and beyond it 24-7 Ridge--is a logger's dream. It's dangerous work. Rich has already lived decades longer than his father, killed on the job. Rich wants better for his son, Chub, so when the opportunity arises to buy 24-7 Ridge--costing them all the savings they've squirreled away for their growing family--he grabs it, unbeknownst to Colleen. Because the reality is their family isn't growing; Colleen has lost several pregnancies. And she isn't alone. As a midwife, Colleen has seen it with her own eyes. For decades, the herbicides the logging company uses were considered harmless. But Colleen is no longer so sure. What if these miscarriages aren't isolated strokes of bad luck? As mudslides take out clear-cut hillsides and salmon vanish from creeks, her search for answers threatens to unravel not just Rich's plans for the 24-7, but their marriage too, dividing a town that lives and dies on timber along the way. Told from the perspectives of Rich, Colleen, and Chub, in prose as clear as a spring-fed creek, this intimate, compassionate portrait of a community clinging to a vanishing way of life amid the perils of environmental degradation makes Damnation Spring an essential novel for our time.

              A deeply moving, life-affirming novel about residents in a small Connecticut town facing everyday fears and desires--a lost love, a stalled career, a diagnosis--that pulls at the heartstrings and provides hope, for readers of Olive Kitteridge. In the small city of Wharton, Connec...ticut, lives are beginning to unravel. A husband betrays his wife. A son struggles with addiction. A widow misses her late spouse. At the heart of these interlinking stories is one couple: Freddie and Greg Tyler. Greg has just been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a brutal form of cancer. He intends to handle this the way he has faced everything else: through grit and determination. But can Greg successfully overcome his illness? How will Freddie and their daughter cope if he doesn't? How do the other residents of Wharton learn to live with loss, and find happiness again? An emotionally powerful debut that immerses the reader into a community of friends, family, and neighbors, A Little Hope celebrates the importance of small moments of connection and the ways that love and forgiveness can help us survive even the most difficult of life's challenges.
