MIGRATIONS, by Charlotte McConaghy. (Flatiron, 288 pp., $16.99.) “Sea yarns that serve as voyages of self-discovery have been the exclusive literary domain of men for far too long, and McConaghy deserves extra credit for sounding the oceanic depths of the female soul,” Michael Christie wrote in his review of the Australian young-adult author’s reimagining of “Moby-Dick.” In her dystopic version, a “mysteriously damaged” woman tracks arctic birds on what might be their final migration.

THE BEAUTY IN BREAKING: A Memoir, by Michele Harper. (Riverhead, 304 pp., $16.) An emergency room doctor tells her own story of brokenness and healing through encounters with her patients. Our Group Text columnist, Elisabeth Egan, called the book “riveting, heartbreaking, sometimes difficult, always inspiring.”

BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE: Newt Gingrich and the Rise of the New Republican Party, by Julian E. Zelizer. (Penguin, 368 pp., $18.) In his “insightful if deeply unflattering” portrait of the former House speaker, Zelizer criticizes Republican Party leaders for fueling Gingrich’s insurgency, noting that while the party’s early-1950s forebears used Joseph McCarthy to attack its opponents, they never made him its leader.

THE BOHEMIANS: The Lovers Who Led Germany’s Resistance Against the Nazis, by Norman Ohler. (Mariner, 320 pp., $16.99.) Best known in Germany as a novelist, Ohler weaves a “meticulously researched tale” about a free-spirited pair of young resisters that “reads like a thriller but is supported by 20 pages of footnotes,” Ariana Neumann remarked in her review.

THESE FEVERED DAYS: Ten Pivotal Moments in the Making of Emily Dickinson, by Martha Ackmann. (Norton, 336 pp., $16.95.) Our reviewer, Megan Marshall, described Ackmann’s meditation on transformative episodes in the iconic 19th-century poet’s life as “a book I recurrently fell in and out of love with … all the while fully absorbed.” She praised Ackmann’s “deep knowledge” and “energetic storytelling” but found her presumptuous “excursions” into Dickinson’s mind “puzzling.”

LOVE AFTER LOVE, by Ingrid Persaud. (One World, 336 pp., $17.) Titled after a poem by Derek Walcott, who lived in Persaud’s native Trinidad, this “stellar debut novel,” in our reviewer Gabriel Bump’s words, is about “an unconventional family, fear, hatred, violence, chasing love, losing it and finding it again just when we need it most.”
