THE ZEN OF THERAPY: Discovering hidden kindness in life, by Mark Epstein. (Penguin Press, $27.) A warm and deep memory of a year in the consulting room of Epstein, psychiatrist and practicing Buddhist. It explores the fundamental wisdom that psychotherapy and Buddhism share, to show how it could help us on the path to fulfillment. “The unifying position that Epstein identifies in Buddhism and in therapy at its best,” writes Oliver Burkeman in his review, “is the willingness to pay attention, while letting people and feelings be as they are. “

SMALL WORLD, by Jonathan Evison. (Dutton, $28.) Evison’s expansive new novel explores the lives of several passengers on a fateful train bound for Seattle, as well as the lives of their 19th-century ancestors. It weaves together a history of the West, examining injustices and inequalities across generations and cultures while maintaining an abiding belief in humanity’s capacity for benevolence. “The novel is easy to love in part because it is about generosity and hope,” TaraShea Nesbit writes in her review. “’Small World’ is ambitious, showing our interconnectedness across time, place and cultures. … The final pages, serious and direct, risk the sentimental, which could be the riskiest move of all.

THE FINAL CASE, by David Guterson. (Knopf, $27.) Guterson, perhaps best known for “Snow Falling on Cedars,” returns with a tender, closely watched, and often surprising father-son novel centered on a criminal trial. The verdict in this case is not just about the people in the courtroom, but about family love and its silent, complicated passions. “Guterson is the kind of writer people used to say about, when there were such things, ‘I would read him, even if he wrote the phone book,'” writes Scott Turow, commenting on the novel. “Each phrase has graceful weight and meter and is informed by a subtle intelligence that makes its descriptions gripping but never showy.”

MANIFESTO: Never give up, by Bernardin Evaristo. (Grove, $27.) The Booker Prize-winning author’s early memoir of ‘Girl, Woman, Other’ recalls her upbringing in an interracial Catholic family in London, and her long, arduous path to literary stardom – and romantic trials and youthful abandonment along the way . “A lighter work than his novels, and more simply told, ‘Manifesto’ is a smooth-passing behind-the-scenes accompanying text,” writes our reviewer, Quiara Alegría Hudes. The book “offers an irresistibly paradoxical invitation to writers: Create a literature of the left behind, giving free rein to one’s heart”.

THE THEFT: The attempt to nullify the 2020 election and the people who stopped it, by Mark Bowden and Matthew Teague. (Atlantic Monthly, $28.) The authors commemorate the most unknown Republican officials in local politics who resisted pressure from their party to cancel the 2020 election – and played a key role in preserving American democracy. In his review, Luke Broadwater calls it a “lean, fast-paced and important account of the chaotic final weeks of the Trump administration” that offers “a view of the election through the eyes of state and county officials” .
