Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

by Erik Larson

The new book from the author of Devil in the White City, Larson continues to show his deft hand in writing history that reads like a novel. Dead Wake tells the story of the sinking of the ocean liner Lusitania, the event that some say brought America into World War I. A thrilling, absorbing book.

The Buried Giant: A Novel

by Kazuo Ishiguro

The author of Remains of the Day turns his prodigious talents to tell a Chaucer-like tale of love and memory, of traveling and getting lost, and of a Britain that never was. A departure for him, but nevertheless, told in his bold, beautiful style.
