In the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman SUPERLEAD takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities - and also the faults and biases - of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior. The impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.

FICTION

It was an icy morning in 1945 when the patrol came for seventeen-year-old Leo Auberg to deport him to a camp in the Soviet Union. Leo would spend the next five years in a coke processing plant, shoveling coal, lugging bricks, mixing mortar, and battling the relentless calculus of hunger that governed the labor colony: one shovel load of coal is worth one gram of bread. Internationally hailed as “a masterpiece,” The Hunger Angel calls upon Herta Müller’s unique combination of poetic intensity and dispassionate precision to conjure the distorted world of the labor camp in all its physical and moral absurdity. She has given Leo the language to express the inexpressible, as hunger sharpens his senses into an acuity that is both hallucinatory and profound. In scene after disorienting scene, the most ordinary objects accrue tender poignancy as they acquire new purpose - a gramophone box serves as a suitcase, a handkerchief becomes a talisman, an enormous piece of casing pipe functions as a lovers’ trysting place. The heart is reduced to a pump, The Hunger Angel while coal, sand, and snow take on a will of their own. Hunger becomes an insatiable angel who haunts the camp, but also a bare-knuckled sparring partner, Herta Muller delivering blows that keep Leo feeling the rawest connection to life. 9781250032089

“Jonathan Franzen is a serious writer who plays for the highest literary stakes... A telling battle report from within the consciousness of one of our major novelists.” Philip Lopate, The New York Times Book Review

Farther Away Jonathan Franzen

In this incisive collection of speeches and essays, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigor to the themes, both human and literary, that have long preoccupied him. Whether recalling his violent encounter with bird poachers in Cyprus, examining his feelings about the suicide of his friend and rival David Foster Wallace, or offering a moving and witty take on the ways that technology has changed how people express their love, these pieces deliver on Franzen’s implicit promise to conceal nothing. A remarkable and revelatory work from one of our greatest living novelists, Farther Away traces the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature, and with some of the most important issues of our day. 9781250033291

Other mining ships are few and far between, so when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a massive, fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt. Worrying about a distant object that might be an alien ship seems… not important. But they’re wrong.

The story begins with the beautiful, reckless, seventeen-year-old Zelda Sayre on the day she meets Lieutenant Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald at a country club dance. Fitzgerald isn’t rich or settled; no one knows his people; and he wants to be a writer in New York. No matter how wildly in love they may be, Zelda’s father firmly opposes the match. But when Scott finally sells his first novel, This Side of Paradise, Zelda defies her parents to board a train to New York and marry him in the vestry of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Everyone wants to meet the dashing young author of the scandalous novel and his beautiful, perhaps even more scandalous wife. Zelda bobs her hair, trades in her provincial finery for daring dresses and plunges into the endless party that welcomes the darlings of the literary world to New York, then Paris and the French Riviera. It is the Jazz Age, when everything seems new and possible - except that dazzling success does not always last. Surrounded by a thrilling array of magnificent hosts and mercurial geniuses - including Sara and Gerald Murphy, Gertrude Stein, and the great and terrible Ernest Hemingway - Zelda and Scott find the future both grander and stranger than they could have ever imagined.

So it is with mixed feelings that she greets the news that a head has washed up on the beach. It’s tragic, of course, but this could be the sort of sensational murder that would get a her byline in a major daily and keep her toehold on her journalism career.

In 1925, earthquakes and a rising sea level left Lower Manhattan submerged under more than thirty feet of water, so that its residents began to call it The Drowning City. Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings. Fifty years have passed since then, and The Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance. Among them are fourteen year old Molly McHugh and her friend and employer, Felix Orlov. Once upon a time Orlov the Conjuror was a celebrated stage magician, but now he is an old psychic medium, contacting the spirits of the departed for the grieving loved ones left behind. When a séance goes horribly wrong, Felix Orlov is abducted by strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits. Molly finds herself on the run. Her flight leads her into the company of Simon Hodge, a Victorian detective who’s kept himself alive with magic and steampunk mechanics, and the stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, whose own past and true identity is a mystery to him, but who walks his own dreams as a man of stone and clay, brought to life for the sole purpose of hunting witches. 3

In his New York Times bestseller What Money Can’t Buy, Michael J. Sandel takes up one of the biggest ethical questions of our time: Isn’t there something wrong with a world in which everything is for sale? If so, how can we prevent market values from reaching into spheres of life where they don’t belong? What are the moral limits of markets? In recent decades, market values have crowded out nonmarket norms in almost every aspect of life. Without quite realizing it, Sandel argues, we have drifted from having a market economy to being a market society.

What Money Can’t Buy Michael J. Sandel

In Justice, an international bestseller, Sandel showed himself to be a master at illuminating, with clarity and verve, the hard moral questions we confront in our everyday lives. Now, in What Money Can’t Buy, he provokes a debate that’s been missing in our market-driven age: What is the proper role of markets in a democratic society, and how can we protect the moral and civic goods that markets do not honor and money cannot buy? 9780374533656

The United States is struggling to put down an insurgency in the South Pacific while the upstart imperialist Japan begins to make clear to neighboring Russia its territorial ambition. In China, a mysterious group of superstitious peasants is launching attacks on the Western powers they fear are corrupting their country. These ordinary Chinese called Boxers rise up seemingly out of nowhere. They lack a centralized leadership and instead tap into latent nationalism and deep economic frustration to build their army. The military historian David J. Silbey shows just how close the Boxers came to beating back the combined might of the imperial powers. Drawing on the diaries and letters of allied soldiers and diplomats, he paints a vivid portrait of the war.

The End of Big Nicco Mele 4

In The End of Big, Internet pioneer and Harvard Kennedy School lecturer Nicco Mele draws on nearly twenty years of experience to explore the consequences of revolutionary technology. Our ability to connect instantly, constantly, and globally is altering the exercise of power with dramatic speed. Governments, corporations, centers of knowledge, and expertise are eroding before the power of the individual. It can be good in some cases, but as Mele reveals, the promise of the Internet comes with a troubling downside. Unless we exercise deliberate moral choice over the design and use of technologies, Mele says, we doom ourselves to a future that tramples human values, renders social structures chaotic, and destroys rather than enhances freedom. Both hopeful and alarming, thought-provoking and passionately-argued, The End of Big is an important book about our present - and our future. 9781250021854

Yet as Arlie Russell Hochschild shows in The Outsourced Self, the market - ever more specialized and global - is very much present at home. Many aspects of private life - love, friendship, child rearing - are being transformed into packaged expertise to be sold back to anxious, time-starved Americans. From dating services that train you to be the CEO of your love life to wedding planners who create a couple’s “personal narrative”; from nameologists (who help you name your child) to wantologists (who help you name your goals); from commercial surrogate farms in India to hired mourners who will scatter your loved one’s ashes in the ocean of your choice - Hochschild reveals a world in which the most intuitive and emotional of human acts have become work for hire.

The iconic Brit pop band The Stone Roses became an overnight sensation when their 1989 eponymous album went double platinum. Its chiming guitar riffs, anthemic melodies, and Smiths-like pop sensibility elevated The Stone Roses to a cult-like status in the UK and put them on the map in the U.S. But theirs is a story of unfulfilled success: their star imploded as their sophomore effort took years to complete and the band broke up acrimoniously in 1996. Now, sixteen years later, they have reunited and toured Europe to much anticipation in the summer 2012; not stopping there, the Stone Roses have announced a new record deal and a US tour to come in 2013. With one hundred interviews of key figures, forty unseen photographs, and exclusive insider material including how they created their music, The Stone Roses charts the band’s rise from the backwaters of Manchester to becoming the stars of the “Madchester” scene to their 2011 reunion. Going beyond the myths to depict a band that defined Brit pop, the book illustrates their incandescent talent and jaw-dropping success while contextualizing them in the 90s music scene.

Aliens have been leasing Earth to humans, and now they want it back! Giles is the last person anyone would expect to save the planet. He’s not as charming as his little sister, and certainly not as brainy as his goodygoody older brother. But when Giles witnesses an alien realtor showing the planet to possible new tenants, he knows someone better step in and save the world. Humans have messed it up - if Giles can manage to clean up Manhattan, then maybe they’ll let us stay on the planet a little while longer. He can ask for help from three other humans (should he ask his brother? his best friend?), and the aliens also give him an “attorney,” a droid in the shape of a parking meter, and access to one of the maddest scientists in middle-grade literature.
