It’s a strong week for nonfiction when a Joan Didion collection (new collection, old essays) isn’t the most remarkable offering. Highlights include Cicely Tyson’s memoir, an autobiography of Ida B. Wells, Ben Montgomery’s rare history of justice in the Jim Crow era, and NYT columnist Charles Blow’s Black power manifesto.
Fiction includes Keisha Bush’s debut novel, No Heaven for Good Boys, billed as a modern-day Oliver Twist set in Senegal.
