A great story offers fresh new insights and sometimes an unexpected perspective. Amor Towles' A Gentleman in Moscow does just that, as does a new book about the Chinese American experience, The Fortunes. A more microscopic perspective occupies center stage in the non-fiction volume, I Contain Multitudes. Don't miss Under the Udala Trees, a hypnotic story set in Nigeria, now released in paperback. Come join us for a discussion of this novel and happy reading!
