All Print New Titles List for the Week of October 1

The shelves are bursting this week with great titles to help you cope with uncertain times. We're willing to bet David Lebovitz' Drinking French has the precise cocktail to sip while sinking into a comfy couch with a truly exciting book. So what's on our new list this week? Possibly the cutest cover ever is Jodi Murphy's Talking Animals with its thoughtful alpaca on the front cover. But don't let the cute pet deceive you as Murphy's Orwellian fable takes place in a world with exceedingly loveable animals who grapple with familiar foes -- jobs they hate, polluted oceans and a creeping sense of doom. But wait, the horse has not left the barn yet, that's Barn 8 by Deb Olin Unferth, whose tale about an audacious plot to steal a million chickens in the middle of the night feels terribly exhilarating, yet sheds a bright light on living conditions for hens in corporate farms. If it's thrillers you're after, Louise Penny's All the Devils are Here tops the list with a whodunit set in Paris, #16 in the Chief Inspector Gamache Speaking of faraway lands, Lonely Planet's Crete will inspire you to plan a post-pandemic excursion and Margaret Hefferman's Uncharted will help you navigate an ever-changing yet uncertain future. Relax and enjoy, all the new books are here at MI Library.
