Tesla by Richard Munson

Once just an obscure scientist mostly forgotten after his death, the inventor Nikola Tesla has reemerged and his legacy has captured the imagination of those who see the magic in scientific discovery. Munson’s intensively researched biography of the legendary inventor shows us the man behind the myth—an eccentric genius who required 9 napkins at every meal, spoke 8 languages, and devised world-changing devices in his head on his regular strolls through Central Park. - Aric

Maria M. by Gilbert Hernandez

Like many angsty Chicano teens I found (and subsequently consumed) the Hernandez brothers’ Love and Rockets graphic novels with a certain fervor that only impressionable youths have. So I suppose one might say I’m pretty excited for a new book in the Love and Rockets universe. Maria M., Complete Collection is an unusual graphic novel that tells the Scorcese-by-way-of-Darren-Arnovsky crime tale of Maria M., the mother of one of Love and Rockets’ primary characters. Sex, drugs, rock (maybe some head rolling), and unforgettable characters make this collection a must-read for anyone nostalgic for their tormented teen years. - Gabe

This book's publication date has been rescheduled to January 22nd, 2019. While we are sad this book will not be out this summer, we are excited to share it with you next year!

American Hookup by Lisa Wade

The sexual politics of college (and post-college) life are central to successful discussions of gender equality. In this must-read book Wade investigates what hookup culture looks like, the unequal impacts of it (oftentimes along racial and gender lines), and its relationship to an ever-changing lineage of American youths and how they initiate and experience sex and romance. - Clara

The Overstory by Richard Powers

Richard Powers is an author of voracious curiosity and laser focused insight, gracing each of his novel’s topics with originality and breadth. His newest, The Overstory, is structured around trees, their own histories and our relationships with them, both on a personal level through the cast of diverse characters he builds and through the environmental activism that brings them together in unexpected ways. Gorgeously written, thoughtfully rendered, this is another intellectual feat by one of my favorite authors. - Melinda

The Not Quite States of America by Doug Mack

Everyone knows that America is 50 states—but what about the not-quite states? How did American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands become U.S. territories—and why are they often forgotten? (Say, after a devastating hurricane, or two.) “"An informative romp through the country's lesser explored areas, this book will engage history and political science buffs, along with travelers interested in the complete United States of America. —Library Journal

Ratf**cked by David Daley

This is not normal. Forget the Whitehouse—politics now is not normal. Daley pulls together the story of how following Obama’s 2008 election, key Republicans developed a meticulous, well-funded, often illegal plan to take over the U.S., by gerrymandering congressional district lines to create the nigh-unbreakable majority (and extreme politics) we’re dealing with today. - Jocelyn

In the Land of Giants by Max Adams

Though considered a backwater during the centuries following Roman rule, Britain experienced a great deal of development leading up to its rise during the Medieval era. Adams recreates this progression from his own experience in the field and research in the halls of academia. Part travel writing, part history, this was a joyous trek through the home country. - Ian

The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook by Jim Lahey

Jim Lahey, owner of the acclaimed Sullivan Street Bakery in New York, has been on a mission to empower home cooks to bake their own bread. Ten years ago he introduced the “no knead” method to bread making, which practically made him a household name. In his new book, he turns his attention to sourdough and Italian breads, as well as pizza dough, brioche, croissants, and sandwiches. His no-fuss recipes will win over any baker who, like me, is intimidated by yeast. - S.B.

Live Cinema and Its Technique by Francis Ford Coppola

One of the living masters, Francis Ford Coppola intends to turn us toward the future in Live Cinema—a fusion of film and television already being shown (such as Grease Live!) and movie theater broadcasts of opera, ballet, and theater. Although Coppola wrote this as a critical manual of a burgeoning form, he also shares insights about film overall and draws on anecdotes and stories from his own life. A must for the film nerd. - Jocelyn
