5 books to read in January



Published:

Outline

By Rachel Cusk
A novelist in Athens teaching a creative writing course asks her 10 students to tell her what they noticed on the way to class. Cusk makes the mundane fascinating in this inventive narrative about how each of us tells the stories of our own lives.

Prune

By Gabrielle Hamilton
A collection of recipes from the New York chef’s popular restaurant, Prune. The book design is charming, complete with coffee stains on pages and notes Hamilton left for her cooks.
Hamilton’s book is a great addition for the gourmand’s library.

The Rabbit Back Literature Society

By Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinens
A famous reclusive children’s writer in the small town of Rabbit Back has a secret society with only nine members. A troubled teacher is invited to join and soon learns about a member who has disappeared.

Descent

By Tim Johnston
A family vacationing in the Rockies steps into a nightmare when 18-year-old daughter Claire goes out for a run and never returns. The family fractures and, for the next two years, struggles for answers. A canny thriller and a heartbreaking look at a family in crisis.

Ghettoside

By Jill Leovy
In South Central L.A., a young black man is gunned down near his home, one of thousands of black Americans murdered whose killers are never arrested. This time, the case goes to an exceptional cop who strives for the unlikely: to solve the case.
