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.  

Some books immerse you in the world as it is, or as it has recently been: John Kerry’s memoir of public service, for example, or Yuval Noah Harari’s latest survey of the global forces that shape contemporary life. Others just want to regale you with unicorns and stamp-collecting werewolves: Reader, meet the Icelandic novelist Sjon.

Escapist pleasure is on the menu with many of this week’s recommended titles, from Randy Kennedy’s noirish debut, “Presidio,” about a car thief with baggage, to Lisa Locascio’s novel of erotic awakening, “Open Me,” about an American exchange student in Denmark, to Valerie Trueblood’s “Terrarium,” a story collection filled with bad people and good dogs. We round things out with a vibrant history of Oklahoma City, a childhood memoir by Steve Jobs’s daughter, and Nico Walker’s darkly comic “Cherry,” a tale of romantic obsession set against a backdrop of addiction and PTSD.
