Week of May 30, 2022

Paperback releases for the week of May 30th include ANIMAL, Lisa Taddeo's depiction of female rage at its rawest, and a visceral exploration of the fallout from a male-dominated society; TRAVELS WITH GEORGE, in which Nathaniel Philbrick argues for George Washington’s unique contribution to the forging of America by retracing his journey as a new president through all 13 former colonies, which were now an unsure nation; Kristin Arnett's WITH TEETH, a surprising and moving story of two mothers, one difficult son, and the limitations of marriage, parenthood and love; LOVE AND FURY, Samantha Silva's richly imagined reckoning with the life of literary legend Mary Wollstonecraft, arguably the world’s first feminist; and the paperback original THE BOARDWALK BOOKSHOP by Susan Mallery, a story of friends who become family, giving each other courage to start over.
