10 Books For Fall

Glasses and Books by Lee Kissinger on Zatista.com

Now that you’re putting away your beach gear and the kids are trying to adjust to the school routine, it’s time to think about your fall book list. As you try your best to ease back into the school year, don’t forget to build in some quiet moments of reading time. It just might help you maintain your sanity as fall settles in and blurs right into the busy holiday season. Here’s a list of reads to looks forward to from Huffington Post. These are all due to be published in the first 2 weeks of September:

    • Acceptance by Jeff Vandermeer – Publishes September 2 – The third and final installment in Vandermeer’s Southern Reach trilogy follows a final expedition into the mysterious, deadly and quickly expanding terrain of Area X, an ecological mystery that scientists are struggling to understand.
      • The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell – Publishes September 2 – David Mitchell is back and as genre-bendy as ever. Describing the breadth of his latest epic as “sprawling” wouldn’t quite do it justice.
        • 10:04 by Ben Lerner – Publishes September 2 – Although the world of Ben Lerner’s latest story is indeed apocalyptic — New York City has been inundated with nonstop thunderstorms, and could soon be completely submerged — it’s not the sort of dystopia readers might’ve grown accustom to.
          • The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters – Publishes September 2 – Waters’s latest story chronicles an aristocratic British family forced to take on boarders after they lose a large portion of their wealth. A widow and her aging daughter find that there’s much to be learned from their middle-class tenants, in this exploration of London after the First World War.
            • Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti – Publishes September 4 – Sheila Heti, author of the groundbreaking “novel from life,” How Should a Person Be, has teamed up with The Believer magazine co-editor Heidi Julavits and Leanne Shapton, whose ultra-twee titles include Swimming Studies and Was She Pretty? to anthologize a slew of writers’ relationships with clothing.

              Read a Good Book by Stacy Rajab on Zatista.com

            • Hold the Dark by William Giraldi – Publishes September 8, 2014 – Set in an isolated Alaskan town recently plagued with wolf attacks, Giraldi’s second novel is as much a thriller as it is a poignant examination of masculinity in its rawest form.
              • The Moor’s Account by Laila Lalami – Publishes September 9 – In 1527, Pánfilo de Narváez set out for the Americas. Laila Lalami reimagines his story in her stunning historical novel, through the eyes of one of his crewman’s Moroccan slave, Mustafa al-Zamori. The Moor’s Account sheds light on all of the possible the New World exploration stories that didn’t make history.
                • In Case of Emergency by Courtney Moreno- Publishes September 9 – Reminiscent of Leslie Jamison’s essay on medical acting in her collection The Empathy Exams, Courtney Moreno’s book uses the coping mechanisms she learned while working as an EMT to color her narrator’s painful past.
                  • The Children Act by Ian McEwan – Publishes September 9 – The author of Atonement has penned a touching tale about an earnest, devoutly religious family that wishes to deny their son medical treatment due to their belief system. An intervening judge whose own personal life isn’t everything she’d hoped for finds herself conflicted on the matter.
                    • How We Learn by Benedict Carey – Publishes September 9 – Carey takes on long-perpetuated stereotypes about the ways in which we take in and absorb information. In particular, he challenges the notion that down time is detrimental, rather than beneficial, to learning. Not only does he cite scientific evidence for his claims, but he provides guidance for applying efficient methods of learning to the reader’s everyday life.

Graffiti Meets Luxury Graffiti Meets Luxury
When we hear about graffiti, we often picture vandalism and not luxury designer brands, but that’s starting to change. We’ve already talked about how graffiti has been moved from street corners to galleries, but it’s about to make another big shift: into the world of fashion and luxury. Thanks to brands like Gucci, Fendi, and […]
