Today's releases include two powerful, deeply personal but disparate accounts of struggle and deliverance, and a dishy beach read to provide the perfect palate cleanser. We start with Sherman Alexie's You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, a memoir in which the poet and novelist makes peace with his brilliant but wildly mercurial mother. Editorial Director Sarah Harrison Smith says: "Family memoirs often seem like an opportunity for score settling, but Alexie is so aware of his own fallible memory and his own imperfections that this one won’t make you bristle...It's readable, unpretentious, funny and deeply compassionate."
