The best books out this week

Three brilliant new memoirs that capture a breadth of human experience and a tender novel about creativity and identity, all out now.

Stephen Carlick and Alice Vincent

There’s a definite theme to this week’s biggest book releases: across a span of incredible memoirs, three authors from very different walks of life explore living authentically, escaping religious oppression, and transcending queer trauma, all in expectedly moving ways. Meanwhile, in fiction, novelist Gabrielle Zevin tells a tender tale of love and creativity through the lens of video games in her long-awaited Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. Dig into all four below.
