The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward

In Amanda Erye Ward’s The Jetsetters, everyone is, to put it mildly, a colossal wreck. Lucky for us, they each—all three Perkins children, plus their widowed matriarch Charlotte—also get a say. Told in chapters with alternating POVs, Eyre Ward’s genuine, hilarious writing rotates between each character’s perspective over the course of a week-long European cruise, producing a story of deep-seated familial discord and desire that falls apart as spectacularly as it wills itself back together.

A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende

From a titan of literature comes a new novel that opens in 1930s Spain, where two refugees, including a pregnant widow named Roser, make a harrowing pilgrimage over mountains and oceans to escape civil war. Bound to her deceased lover’s brother in a marriage of convenience, she settles in the author’s native Chile. The protagonist builds a new home, while considering the one that she left behind. In this transporting novel, Isabel Allende is as transcendent and life-affirming as ever, locating joy in the refugee experience and light in the darkness.

Lurking by Joanne McNeil

Not a fan of fiction? Well, this non-fiction book by Joanne McNeil charts roving personal histories of the Internet, tracing the path from forums and Friendster to today’s caustic cesspool. Lurking is far-reaching and ferociously smart, told from the hearts and minds of users— rather than the profit and loss statements of tech conglomerates. In centering her research on the user experience, McNeil weaves a people’s history of the Internet, making for a humane, big-hearted narrative of how the Internet has changed — and how it changed us.
