Everybody’s Fool by Richard Russo

It’s amazing what can happen in a podunk town in upstate New York over the course of a few days, and Richard Russo’s splendid new novel explores it all with assured writing, hilarious (and true) observation, and characters that could not be more full of real life. Heartfelt comic genius at its best, a stand-alone sequel to Nobody’s Fool and a damn fine book—you deserve to enjoy this masterpiece of modern storytelling.  —Melinda

This Too Shall Pass by Milena Busquets

After her mother’s death, Blanca is adrift. Her generous love and flawed friendships bring ease to an otherwise devastating time. Every word of this gorgeous novel is colored by grief, and the story twists and turns to avoid and simultaneously face that grief head on. This Too Shall Pass paints a vibrant picture of how life stops and yet marches on after a major loss. Amazing and cathartic.  —Ivy

Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

Plane crash! Flashbacks! Coincidence versus fate! No, no, I’m not talking Lost, but in much the same way as Lost did, Before the Fall had me hooked right from the get-go. Noah Hawley does a fantastic job of weaving together the lives before take-off of the 11 passengers with the tales of the two survivors as they adjust back to the real world. But what about the 16 minutes between take-off and the plane going down? I guess you’ll have to read the book and find out….  —Andrés

The Veins of the Ocean by Patricia Engel

Patricia Engel has written a searing novel that explores the complexities of family, the inexplicability of loyalty, and the burden of grief and guilt through the lenses of the devoted sister of a Colombian man on death row and the Cuban exile whose life is paralyzed by the children he left behind. Drenched in the lush landscape of the Florida Keys and the powerful waters that surround it, this is a moving story, complex, emotional, and ultimately redemptive.  —Melinda
