* Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Atwood’s classic dystopian novel of a terrifying plausible future. The novel is as relevant today as ever; feminist backlashes continue to wax and wane, but women’s rights remain in the spotlight.

The Handmaid’s Tale is ultimately a hopeful book offred, simply cannot be human without the possibility of hope, and therein lies the strength of the resistance. All of Atwood is worth reading, but this book best exemplifies the cultural and psychological impact that a work of fiction can create.

* Where the Crawdads Sing?, by Delia Owens

Owens made her name as a wildlife scientist in her fiction debut, she sets a tale of crime and isolation in the North Carolina marshlands. Our crime columnist, Marilyn Stasio, calls it a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming of age narrative and a celebration of nature about an abandoned child who makes us open our own eyes to the secret wonders and dangers of her private world.

*End of Loneliness by Benedict Wells

In an age when the double tap is so often the fastest path to fame there is something appealingly old-fashioned about a literary success story. This holds especially true for the tale of ”Benedict” Wells the 35-year-old German wunderkind who survived a downright Dickensian childhood before emerging as a cultural sensation in his native country.

”Wells” was only 6 when illness and financial troubles shattered his household forcing his parents to send their three children to state-run Bavarian boarding schools. This early experience informs ”Wells’s uber”personal new novel an international phenomenon that won the European Union Prize for literature.
