Empire of the Summer Moon, by S.C.Gwynne, is about the history of the Comanche Native American tribe. After reading Dee Brown's masterful Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, I was attracted to this new, acclaimed book about Native Americans.
The Murderess, by Alexandros Papadiamantis, is about an old woman on a small Greek island. It's a small book but it looks really great. Part of the problem I'm having is that there's almost no difference between doing my job and shopping for books all day. I found this while straightening shelves in the NYRB Classics section.
The Tennis Partner, by Abraham Verghese, is his memoir about a close friend who died. I had to round out my collection of Verghese books- and now I should actually read them!
