The Story of King Jesus written by Ben Irwin, illustrated by Nick Lee - Children's, Christian, Nonfiction

David C. Cook | 9781434707727 | Published March 1, 2015

More than a collection of Bible stories, this vividly illustrated children's book tells the big picture of the Bible --- from the creation of the world to the calling of Israel to Jesus's victory over death. Many Bible storybooks offer stand-alone stories, which reduces biblical narrative to moral fables rather than showing how they are a part of a larger redemptive drama. Designed for children ages 4 to 8, THE STORY OF KING JESUS is the gospel told in a single story --- one designed to be read in one sitting.

Aquarium by David Vann - Fiction

Atlantic Monthly Press | 9780802123527 | Published March 3, 2015

Twelve-year-old Caitlin lives alone with her mother --- a docker at the local container port --- in subsidized housing next to an airport in Seattle. Each day, while she waits to be picked up after school, Caitlin visits the local aquarium to study the fish. Gazing at the creatures within the watery depths, Caitlin accesses a shimmering universe beyond her own. When she befriends an old man at the tanks one day, who seems as enamored of the fish as she, Caitlin cracks open a dark family secret and propels her once-blissful relationship with her mother toward a precipice of terrifying consequence.

Crow Fair: Stories by Thomas McGuane - Fiction, Short Stories

Knopf | 9780385350198 | Published March 3, 2015

The ties of family make for uncomfortable binds in Thomas McGuane’s first short story collection in nine years. A devoted son is horrified to discover his mother’s antics before she slipped into dementia. A father’s outdoor skills are no match for an ominous change in the weather. But complications arise equally in the absence of blood, as when lifelong friends on a fishing trip finally confront their deep dislike for each other. Or when a gifted traveling cattle breeder succumbs to the lure of a stranger’s offer of easy money.

Dark Rooms by Lili Anolik - Fiction, Mystery

William Morrow | 9780062345868 | Published March 3, 2015

Death sets the plot of DARK ROOMS in motion: the murder of 16-year-old Nica Baker. The crime is quickly solved --- a lonely classmate, unrequited love, a suicide note confession --- but memory and instinct won’t allow Nica’s older sister, Grace, to accept the case as closed. Dropping out of college and living at home, working at the moneyed and progressive private high school from which she recently graduated, Grace becomes increasingly obsessed with identifying and punishing the real killer.

Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral by Mary Doria Russell - Fiction, Historical Fiction

On October 26, 1881, Doc Holliday and the Earp brothers faced off against the Clantons and the McLaurys in Tombstone, Arizona. It should have been a simple misdemeanor arrest. Thirty seconds and 30 bullets later, three officers were wounded and three citizens lay dead in the dirt. Wyatt Earp was the last man standing, the only one unscathed. The lies began before the smoke cleared, but the gunfight at the O.K. Corral would soon become central to American beliefs about the Old West.

Anna was living a normal life. She was ambitious and worked hard; she had just bought an apartment; she was falling in love. But then she started to develop worrying symptoms: her face felt like it was burning whenever she was in front of the computer. Soon this progressed to an intolerance of fluorescent light, then of sunlight itself. The reaction soon spread to her entire body. Now, when her symptoms are at their worst, she must spend months on end in a blacked-out room.  With gorgeous, lyrical prose, Anna brings us into the dark with her, a place from which we emerge to see love, and the world, anew.

When Helen Macdonald’s father died suddenly on a London street, she was devastated. An experienced falconer --- Helen had been captivated by hawks since childhood --- she’d never before been tempted to train one of the most vicious predators, the goshawk.
