Your Shelf Life: 5 Books to Read in April

A curated list of this month's top reads


Published:

There’s been ample buzz about Imagine Wanting Only This, the debut graphic memoir by illustrator Kristen Radtke. The death of Radtke’s uncle sparks a series of real and metaphorical adventures through ruined cities, which Radtke illustrates in evocative grayscale drawings.

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann proves he is simply the best narrative nonfiction writer working today. Grann investigates a set of murders from the 1920s in which members of the Osage Indian nation were killed one by one after oil was discovered on their land.

The intensity of adolescent female friendship is the subject of Julie Buntin’s novel Marlena, which explores how those formative relationships still shape us as adults.

Buzzfeed writer Doree Shafrir’s debut novel Startup chronicles the ambitions and scandals in the office of a nascent app company in New York.

Hourglass is Dani Shapiro’s unguarded look at marriage. The memoir takes on one of the most profound human dilemmas: How do we reconcile the life we’ve always dreamt of with the life we have?
