3OUR MISSING HEARTSCeleste Ng (Penguin Press, $29)Bird’s journey through a dystopian America to find his mother is an eerie and prescient tale. The America that Ng writes about is similar to ours, yet a creeping xenophobia becomes more and more pronounced throughout. Still, a faith in the power of the written word gives this dark story the hope of redemption. (Charlie)THE MARRIAGE PORTRAITMaggie O’Farrell (Knopf, $28)Maggie O’Farrell will steal your breath away. To read The Marriage Portrait is to clip along at a pace you didn’t know you could sustain, to solve a mystery you didn’t see coming, to fight for a girl who is desperately fighting for herself. Beautifully written and richly imagined, this is a book for anyone who loves storytelling and a demonstrated mastery of craft. (Brittany)WOMAN WITHOUT SHAME: POEMSSandra Cisneros (Knopf, $27)Read these poems aloud to taste their tangy spice on your tongue. Read them aloud to inhale their zesty perfume. Read them aloud to feel the power of the feminine embracing you. Read these poems aloud and let their desire, rage, and courage touch you. And have no shame doing it. (Aggie)IF I SURVIVE YOUJonathan Escoffery(MCD Books, $27)Jonathan Escoffery's novel-in-stories brilliantly captures the life of a young man's family of Jamaican heritage living in Miami, Florida. Challenging the usual immigration success story, this book will arrest you with its authentic, exuberant voice, humor, warmth, and compassion. A perfect choice for fans of Zadie Smith and Junot Diaz. (Aggie)THE PASSENGERCormac McCarthy (Knopf, $30)I can’t remember the last time I was so captivated by a book! What if I told you that in its pages, you'll encounter a forbidden love, a most profound sorrow, a cosmic loneliness, a young woman's brilliant math mind tormented by schizophrenia, a dreadful sense of futility, an intergalactic void between God and its people, a string theory history, and a mysterious missing passenger (thus the title)? And yet, this first volume is a true masterpiece! I cannot wait for the second book to follow in December.
