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

Follow on Twitter as @GregoryCowles
Suggested reading from critics and editors at The New York Times by Gregory Cowles, Senior Editor, Books. 

Books are like food. Sometimes you nosh on a little of this and a little of that — méli-mélo, the French say — other times you spend a month eating a whole cow. It’s all sustenance in the end. And books, like food, are a proven way to introduce yourself to other cultures. This week, we serve up five novels from Europe (one from Britain, one from Austria, three from France), along with the biography of a 19th-century British poet and a debut American novel that moves between Vietnam and Hartford. We round things out with a neuropsychologist’s account of his own mental illness, and a prominent conservative’s defense of his political philosophy: food for thought, even if you generally avoid red meat.
