Books worth reading are published year-round, but there’s still something special about the fall, when the crop is always especially bounteous. Here’s a guide to just some of the books that will have our attention from now to the end of the year.
‘A House for Alice’
By Diana Evans (Sept. 12)
The fourth novel by British writer Evans begins on the horrific night in 2017 when London’s Grenfell Tower burned, killing more than 70 people. Against that big social backdrop, Evans’s book follows the intimate story of one family: three daughters and their recently widowed mother, Alice, who plans to move back to Nigeria, her homeland.
