The Last Day of the War

Judith Claire Mitchell
Pantheon
hardcover
$24.95

By most accounts, this novel, set in the closing days of World War I, is a strikingly accomplished debut. The Last Day of the War emphasizes historical accuracy while still delivering a lush story about a young Jewish woman who falls in love with an Armenian-American soldier eager to avenge the Armenian genocide of 1915.

In the Moon of Red Ponies

James Lee Burke
Simon and Schuster
hardcover
$24.95

In the fourth installment in Burke's popular crime series starring Billy Bob Holland, our hero has moved to Montana to begin a law practice. He soon becomes involved in a murder case that's piqued the interest of powerful forces within the federal government.

Little Scarlet

Walter Mosley
Little, Brown
hardcover
$24.95

In the wake of the 1965 Watts riots in Los Angeles, the police department turns to freelance private investigator Easy Rawlins to investigate the mysterious strangling of a red-headed Black woman named Little Scarlet. Fans of the Rawlins mystery series will not be disappointed.

Secrets of the Soul: A Social and Cultural History of Psychoanalysis

Eli Zaretsky
Knopf
hardcover
$30

Psychoanalysis hasn't been in fashion since the '70s, and in Zaretsky's opinion this is a very good thing. The historian traces the fascinating rise and fall of Freud and his intellectual spawn. For anyone interested in the history of ideas, Secrets of the Soul should be a real eye-opener.
