F02 - The Valley of Amazement **Debut**
Author: Amy Tan
Publisher: Ecco; Pub. Date: November 2013; Subject: Fiction;

"Spanning more than forty years and two continents, The Valley of Amazement resurrects pivotal moments of the past: the collapse of China’s last imperial dynasty; the beginning of the Republic; the explosive growth of both lucrative foreign trade and bouts of antiforeign sentiment, which would have ramifications into the future...This deeply evocative narrative exposes the profound connections between mothers and daughters, which returns readers to the compelling territory Amy Tan so expertly mapped in The Joy Luck Club. With her characteristic insight and humor, she conjures a story of inherited trauma, desire and deception, and the power and obstinacy of love.”--publisher description

Author: John Grisham

F04 - Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems
Author: Billy Collins
Publisher: Random House; Pub. Date: October 2013; Subject: Poetry;

"In selections from his four most recent collections...and fifty-one glimmering new poems, former poet laureate and reader favorite Collins, the maestro of the running-brook line and the clever pivot, celebrates the resonance and absurdity of what might be called the poet’s attention-surfeit disorder...But Collins’ droll wit is often a diversionary tactic, so that when he strikes you with the hard edge of his darker visions, you reel.”—Booklist

F09 - The Lowland

"Pulitzer Prize-winner Lahiri’s unparalleled ability to transform the smallest moments into whole lives pinnacles in this extraordinary story of two brothers coming of age in the political tumult of 1960s India...Lahiri is remarkable, achieving multilayered meaning in a simple act...[This is] is deservedly one of this year’s most anticipated books.

F10 - The Circle
Author: Dave Eggers
Publisher: Knopf/McSweeney's; Pub. Date: October 2013; Subject: Fiction;

"A stunning work of terrifying plausibility, a cautionary tale of subversive power in the digital age suavely packaged as a Silicon Valley social satire. Set in the near future, it examines the inner workings of the Circle, an internet company that is both spiritual and literal successor to Facebook, Google, Twitter and more, as seen through the eyes of Mae Holland, a new hire who starts in customer service…Eggers presents a Swiftian scenario so absurd in its logic and compelling in its motives…sneaking up on the reader before delivering its warnings of the future, a worthy and entertaining read.”-—Publishers Weekly, starred review

Author: Simon Winchester
Publisher: Harper; Pub. Date: October 2013; Subject: Non-Fiction; American History;

"For more than two centuries, E pluribus unum--"Out of many, one"--has been featured on America's official government seals and stamped on its currency. But how did America become "one nation, indivisible?" In this monumental history, Simon Winchester addresses these questions, bringing together the breathtaking achievements of those American pioneers who helped to forge and unify the new nation, and who toiled fearlessly to bond the citizens and geography of the United States from its very beginnings. This sweeping narrative details how these daring men, some famous, some forgotten, left their mark on America's natural landscapes, through courage, ingenuity, and hard work.”--publisher description

NF14 - I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems By Cats
Author: Francesco Marciuliano
Publisher: Chronicle Books; Pub. Date: August 2012; Subject: Poetry; Humor;

"Cat lovers will laugh out loud at the quirkiness of their feline friends with these insightful and curious poems from the singular minds of housecats. In this hilarious book of tongue-in-cheek poetry, the author of the internationally syndicated comic strip Sally Forth helps cats unlock their creative potential and explain their odd behavior to ignorant humans. With titles like "Who Is That on Your Lap?," "This Is My Chair," "Kneel Before Me," "Nudge," and "Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs," the poems collected in I Could Pee on This perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche. With photos of the cat authors throughout, this whimsical volume reveals kitties at their wackiest, and most exasperating (but always lovable).”--publisher description
