Set during the tumultuous George W. Bush years — amid the twin catastrophes of the Iraq insurgency and Hurricane Katrina — Landfall brings Thomas Mallon’s cavalcade of contemporary American politics to a vivid and emotional climax. In her historical novel The Flight Portfolio, Julie Orringer weaves invention and facts as she follows the efforts of one man to save artists and writers from the carnage of WWII. John Burnham Schwartz’s The Red Daughter is a sweeping historical novel and unexpected love story inspired by the remarkable life of Svetlana Alliluyeva, Stalin’s only daughter and a defector to the United States.
