A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival.
Eat, Pray, Love is a beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls "Anne Lamott's hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister") is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.
The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears is the literary debut by Dinaw Mengestu, hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "a great American novel."

Now he finds himself running a failing grocery store in a poor African-American section of Washington, D.C., his only companions two fellow African immigrants who share his bitter nostalgia and longing for his home continent. Years ago and worlds away Sepha could never have imagined a life of such isolation. As his environment begins to change, hope comes in the form of a friendship with new neighbors Judith and Naomi, a white woman and her biracial daughter. But when a series of racial incidents disturbs the community, Sepha may lose everything all over again.
The Age of Turbulence is Alan Greenspan's incomparable reckoning with the nature of this new worldhow we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for ill-channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure. The distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, The Age of Turbulence will stand as Alan Greenspan's personal and intellectual legacy.
In 1984, Gibson became the first author to win the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award in a single year for his debut novel Neuromancer. He is credited with having coined the term "cyberspace," and for having envisioned both the Internet (complete with viruses and hackers) and virtual reality before either existed. In subsequent novelsCount Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive, Idoru and the best-sellers Virtual Light and Pattern Recognitionhe foresaw ongoing advances in nanotechnology, information control, identity theft, and the culture of on-line chat rooms. Spook Country, like Pattern Recognition before it, takes place in our own day and time, in a world with which we are all too familiar.
