11 New Books We Recommend This Week | Book Review - New York Times

Suggested reading from critics and editors at The New York Times by Gregory Cowles, Senior Editor, Books. 

This week we bring you four memoirs and one near-memoir, ranging from a family history of old money (Janny Scott’s “The Beneficiary”) to an immigrant’s account of abuse and displacement (Grace Talusan’s “The Body Papers”), from a queer coming-of-age memoir (T Kira Madden’s “Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls”) to a celebrated biographer’s description of his methods (Robert A. Caro’s “Working”). The near-memoir? That belongs to the timeless Beat writer Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who with “Little Boy” has published an autobiographical debut novel at the age of 100.

You’ll also find a couple of environmental books — one about our landscapes and man-made spaces, the other about humanity’s uncertain future — along with poetry, novels new and old, and a story collection from one of Kenya’s greatest living writers.
