Hernan Diaz‘s Trust: A Novel follows the wealthy Benjamin and Helen Rask in 1920s New York. Even in a decade of excess and speculation, at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? The life of the unnamed narrator of Jill Bialosky‘s The Deceptions: A Novel is unraveling – and she seeks answers to the paradoxes of love, desire, and parenthood among the Greek and Roman gods at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Soon, she must choose between reality and myth. And in Karen Joy Fowler‘s Booth, she writes of a country descending into secession and civil war – while also exploring the mesmerizing and terrifying Junius, father of John Wilkes Booth.
