Table of Contents
1.”Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” by David Grann
Smart, taut, and gripping, Grann’s true-if-largely-unknown tale of big oil and serial murder on the Osage Indian Reservation in the 1920s is sobering for how it is at once unsurprising and unbelievable, full of the arrogance, and inhumanity that our society still has yet to overcome.
2. “Exit West: A Novel” a book by Mohsin Hamid
In Mohsin Hamid’s futuristic novel, young lovers flee a war-torn Middle Eastern country to seek safety in the West, where cities like London have become embattled refugee settlements. Hamid (author of “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”) has said that in some sense we are all refugees, and it’s easy to sympathize with his protagonists, who find their romance tested by their travails in exile.
3. “Priestdaddy: A Memoir” by Patricia Lockwood
When Patricia Lockwood temporarily moved back in with her parents—her father a Catholic priest who loves electric guitars; her mother focused on disasters and Satan worshippers—Lockwood returned as well to memories of her upbringing. Poetically precise language and darkly hilarious observations spark zingers that will make you rethink your own childhood indoctrination.
4. “Lincoln in the Bardo: A Novel” a book by George Saunders
Set in 1862, at a ghost-filled cemetery where President Lincoln’s beloved son Willie has been laid to rest. This first novel by acclaimed short-story-writer and essayist George Saunders (of “Tenth of December”) will upend your expectations and leave you hooting with laughter when you aren’t wiping away your tears.
5. “The Impossible Fortress: A Novel” by Jason Rekulak
“The Impossible Fortress” is a coming-of-age story tucked inside a love letter to the strange and wonderful 1980s. It’s one of those rare and special books where once you’ve finished it, you want all your friends to read it immediately.
