Science and the Trinity: The Christian Encounter with Reality

John Polkinghorne
Yale
hardcover
$24

Both a Cambridge physicist and an Anglican priest, Polkinghorne has already written extensively on connections between science and Christianity. In his latest book, he uses simple language to explain his complex ideas about how Christians should understand objective reality as revealed by scientific inquiry.

A Bit on the Side

William Trevor
Viking
hardcover
$24.95

Trevor injects a dizzying dose of Irish melancholy into this collection of drearily poetic short stories. His previous fictional outings have been heaped with praise for their brilliant psychological nuance, but I'm told A Bit on the Side is not for the faint of heart.

Gilgamesh

Stephen Mitchell
Free Press
hardcover
$24

Stephen Mitchell has translated everything from the Tao Te Ching to the Bhagavad Gita. Now he tries his hand at the world's oldest book—a Sumerian epic almost four millennia old about a giant in search of immortality.

The Finishing School

Muriel Spark
Doubleday
hardcover
$16.95

Muriel Spark's 22nd novel is set on the mobile campus of College Sunrise, a deeply unconventional finishing school run by a failed novelist named Rowland Mahler. Advance readers have said that The Finishing School is a viciously effective satire of the privileged classes.
