All the Odes: A Bilingual Edition by Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda was a master of the ode, which he conceived as an homage to just about everything that surrounded him. “Here, appearing in one place for the first time, are all 250 odes (including some 70 previously un-translated) written by Nobel Prize-winner Neruda, possibly the best-selling foreign-language poet of all time in the United States. Readers of poetry can’t afford to miss this.” —Library Journal

Hild: A Novel by Nicola Griffith

A brilliant, lush, sweeping historical novel about the rise of the most powerful woman of the early Middle Ages: Hild. "Nicola Griffith is an awe-inspiring visionary, and I am telling everyone to snatch this book up as soon as it is published. Hild is not just one of the best historical novels I have ever read—I think it’s one of the best novels, period. It sings with pitch-perfect emotional resonance, and I damn well believe in this woman and everyone she engages. I finished the book full of gratitude that it exists, and longing for more.” —Dorothy Allison

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

A gleeful and exhilarating tale of global conspiracy, complex code-breaking, high-tech data visualization, young love, rollicking adventure, and the secret to eternal life—mostly set in a hole-in-the-wall San Francisco bookstore. “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is a hugely enjoyable story of friendship, living, and the lure of the mysterious. It’s a good-hearted, optimistic book about the meeting of modern technology and medieval mystery, a tonal road map to a positive relationship between the old world and the new.” —Nick Harkaway

Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection by Debora L. Spar

“Debora L. Spar [president of Barnard College] has written the right book at the right time. We need to make all women’s lives less stressful and more rewarding. This brave, well-written book points the way. Spar reveals her most intimate history, yet stands back to see her whole generation—and mine—in perspective. Wonder Women will make many women feel deeply understood. And many men. It’s a warm, humorous, and lusty book, and I think many readers will be grateful for it. I certainly am.” —Erica Jong

Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer’s Tour of France by Kermit Lynch

This 25th-anniversary edition features a new afterword by the author.

Roy G. Biv: An Exceedingly Surprising Book About Color by Jude Stewart

Jude Stewart, a design expert and writer, digs into the rich subject of color with gusto. What color is the universe? We might say it’s black, but astrophysicists think it might be turquoise. Unless it’s beige. To read about color from Jude Stewart is to unlock a whole different way of looking at the world around us—and bringing it all vividly to life.
