SOON TO BE A NETFLIX SERIES AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR * A NEW YORK TIMES and WASHINGTON POST NOTABLE BOOK From Aravind Adiga, the bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author of The White Tiger, a â€śferociously brilliantâ€ť (Slate) novel about two brothers in a Mumbai slum who are raised by their crazy, obsessive father to be star cricket players that â€śoffers the sound of a serious and nervy writer working at the top of his formâ€ť (The New York Times). Manjunath Kumar is fourteen and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricketâ€”if not as good as his older brother, Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling, and is fascinated by curious scientific facts and the world of CSI. But there are many things, about himself and about the world, that he doesnâ€™t know. Sometimes it even seems as though everyone has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself. When Manju meets Radhaâ€™s great rival, a mysterious Muslim boy privileged and confident in all the ways Manju is not, everything in Manjuâ€™s world begins to change, and he is faced by decisions that will challenge his sense of self and of the world around him. Filled with unforgettable characters from across Indiaâ€™s social strataâ€”the old scout everyone calls Tommy Sir; Anand Mehta, the big-dreaming investor; Sofia, a wealthy, beautiful girl and the boysâ€™ biggest fanâ€”Selection Day â€śbrings a family, a city, and an entire country to scabrous and antic lifeâ€ť (Chicago Tribune). Aravind Adigaâ€™s â€śvoice is so exuberant, his plotting so jaunty, that the sadness of this story feels as though it is accumulating just outside our peripheral visionâ€ť (The Washington Post). It is, simply, â€śextraordinaryâ€ť (The Atlantic).

Author: John Lingan
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
An intimate account of country music, social change, and a vanishing way of life as a Shenandoah town collides with the twenty-first century Winchester, Virginia is an emblematic American town. When John Lingan first traveled there, it was to seek out Jim McCoy: local honky-tonk owner and the DJ who first gave airtime to a brassy-voiced singer known as Patsy Cline, setting her on a course for fame that outlasted her tragically short life. What Lingan found was a town in the midst of an identity crisis. As the U.S. economy and American culture have transformed in recent decades, the ground under centuries-old social codes has shifted, throwing old folkways into chaos. Homeplace teases apart the tangle of class, race, and family origin that still defines the town, and illuminates questions that now dominate our national conversationâ€”about how we move into the future without pretending our past doesn't exist, about what we salvage and what we leave behind. Lingan writes in â€śpenetrating, soulful ways about the intersection between place and personality, individual and collective, spirit and song.â€ť* * Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams
