Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers. Here are eight books to be grateful for, wherever you are: New poetry collections from the great Patrick Rosal and Frank Bidart, novels about the lives (and deaths) of women in North Dakota and South Korea, a posthumous spy story from the beloved John le Carré. The New York Times Magazine’s ambitious and far-reaching 1619 Project has been turned into an even more ambitious and far-reaching book, the political insider Huma Abedin offers a revealing look at her public and private lives, and the religion reporter Mark Oppenheimer explores grief and resilience in a Jewish neighborhood haunted by violent tragedy. These books aren’t “easy reading” — the stories they tell can be complicated and uncomfortable, uncompromising — but they pursue their truths tirelessly and often beautifully, and that’s a good reason to give thanks, anytime.
