A Monthly Look at Hot Books and Cool Reads

The Invention of Wings
Sue Monk Kidd
From the author of The Secret Life of Bees comes a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. This book, set in early-nineteenth-century Charleston, looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved. Meet the author at Salon@615 on January 15.

 

Andrew’s Brain
E.L. Doctorow
The author of Ragtime, Billy Bathgate, and The March takes us on a radical trip into the mind of a man who, more than once in his life, has been the inadvertent agent of disaster. This suspenseful and groundbreaking novel delivers a voice for our times—funny, probing, skeptical, mischievous, profound.   

 

Orfeo
Richard Powers
Inspired by the myth of Orpheus, National Book Award-winning author Richard Powers delivers his most emotionally charged novel to date. Composer Peter Els runs afoul of a federal terrorism unit and becomes known as the Bioterrorist of Bach. Music and the world of sound are evoked beautifully, along with the process of artistic creation.

 

The Parthenon Enigma
Joan Breton Connelly
This groundbreaking book challenges our most basic assumptions about the Parthenon and the ancient Athenians. In particular, the author probes the Parthenon’s legendary frieze that originally encircled the upper reaches and the remains of which now reside with the Elgin marbles in Britain. Connelly is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship in recognition of her work on Greek art, myth, and religion.
