In the Night Room

Peter Straub
Random House
hardcover
$21.95

No one does literary horror like Straub. His latest novel is a sequel to last year's Lost Boy Lost Girl. This time out Straub's protagonist, an author named Tim Underhill, meets up with a character he's creating in his journals. The results, as usual, are stranger than fiction.

The Story of a Life

Aharon Appelfeld
Schocken
hardcover
$23

This compact but richly composed memoir tells the life story of this famed Jewish writer, from a childhood scarred by war to his difficult migration from his homeland of Romania to the new nation of Israel and his evolution into an internationally renowned literary artist.

Armageddon: The Battle for Germany, 1944-1945

Max Hastings
Knopf
hardcover
$30

This account of the final eight months of World War II is as comprehensive as it is fascinating. Advance readers have praised Hastings' book for its clear language and detailed research.

Scar Tissue

Anthony Keidis (with Larry Sloman)
Hyperion
hardcover
$24.95

Raised by a drug-dealing dad, Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Keidis spent much of his life on drugs, so it's kind of amazing that he remembers enough to put together this memoir. By most accounts, Scar Tissue is a decent tell-all from a drug-addled rock star who eventually found a slice of redemption.
