THE WORLD’S FASTEST MAN: The Extraordinary Life of Cyclist Major Taylor, America’s First Black Sports Hero, by Michael Kranish. (Scribner, 384 pp., $19.) This biography by a Washington Post political reporter “makes plain,” John Swansburg wrote in his review, that Taylor, who “faced discrimination, or worse, at every turn,” succeeded in large part because of his “remarkable perseverance, in and out of the velodrome.”

THE BUTTERFLY LAMPSHADE, by Aimee Bender. (Anchor, 304 pp., $16.95.) Ever since she lost her mother to psychosis as a child and woke up to a dead butterfly floating in a glass of water, the narrator of this “compact surrealist memory box of a novel” — as our reviewer, Kevin Brockmeier, called it — has been transfixed by the memory.

HOAX: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth, by Brian Stelter. (Atria, 448 pp., $18.) CNN’s chief media correspondent has added a new prologue and 12 new chapters on the election and the Capitol raid to the paperback edition. Our reviewer, David Enrich, deemed the book an important volume in a growing library “documenting this strange period in American history.”

VERITAS: A Harvard Professor, a Con Man, and the Gospel of Jesus’s Wife, by Ariel Sabar. (Anchor, 432 pp., $17.) Sabar’s “madcap, unforgettable book,” about Karen King’s 2012 “discovery” that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, is for “enthusiasts of ancient Christianity,” “readers of idea-driven capers” and “anyone who likes watching snooty academics brought low.”
