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. 

Death and disease, damnation and destruction — we’re not trying to be bleak, really we’re not, but sometimes you need to work with what you have. And this week we have “Advice for Future Corpses” (a book about death that’s more happily also a book about life), along with “The Great Believers” (a riveting and humane novel about the AIDS crisis), “Damnation Island” (a history of asylums and other bureaucratic institutions in old New York) and “The Perfect Weapon” (a Times reporter’s thorough examination of the current state of things in cyberwarfare). If you’re looking for something a little less nerve-racking, since we all get plenty of that elsewhere these days, we also recommend books about literary translation, brain elasticity, colonial-era botany and more.
