Week of January 14, 2019

Paperback releases for the week of January 14th include LOVE AND RUIN, in which Paula McLain brings to life the story of Martha Gellhorn --- a fiercely independent, ambitious woman ahead of her time, who would become one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century; NO TIME TO SPARE, the collected best of Ursula K. Le Guin's blog that presents perfectly crystallized dispatches on what mattered to her late in life, her concerns with the world and her wonder at it; THE RECOVERING by Leslie Jamison, which turns our understanding of the traditional addiction narrative on its head, demonstrating that the story of recovery can be every bit as electrifying as the train wreck itself; and Sara Shepard's debut novel for adults, THE ELIZAS, a Hitchcockian double narrative composed of lies, false memories and a protagonist who must uncover the truth for survival.
