Love in a cold climate, Nancy Mitford

A sparkling romantic comedy that vividly evokes the lost glamour of aristocratic life in England between the wars. Polly Hampton has long been groomed for the perfect marriage by her mother, the fearsome and ambitious Lady Montdore. But Polly, with her stunning good looks and impeccable connections, is bored by the monotony of her glittering debut season in London. Having just come from India, where her father served as Viceroy, she claims to have hoped that society in a colder climate would be less obsessed with love affairs. The apparently aloof and indifferent Polly has a long-held secret, however, one that leads to the shattering of her mother’s dreams and her own disinheritance. When an elderly duke begins pursuing the disgraced Polly and a callow potential heir curries favour with her parents, nothing goes as expected, but in the end, all find happiness in their own unconventional ways.

The Dutch House, Ann Patchett

From suburban cocktail parties to Latin American hostage situations, Ann Patchett’s books are crowded with memorable homes. Enter The Dutch House, the titular estate of her brisk and enjoyable new novel that becomes the obsession—and albatross—of three generations of a small and splintered family. At the heart of the story sit siblings Danny and Maeve, a modern-day Hansel and Gretel surrounded by characters worthy of the Brothers Grimm: a remote father, a wicked stepmother, fairy god–servants, and a mysteriously absent mother. As Patchett follows brother and sister on a decades-long quest to find their way home, she plumbs the fault lines of the family to exhilarating effect, all the while revealing our contemporary obsessions with property, inheritance, and the American Dream.

Dancing Barefoot, The Patti Smith Story

Offering a unique analysis and discussion of her life, career, and work, this is the true story of Patti Smith. Widely acknowledged as one of the most significant American artists of the rock age, an acclaimed poet, and a figurehead for many liberal political causes, Patti Smith went from an ugly-duckling childhood in postwar New Jersey to become queen of the 1970s New York art scene. Not a tell-all biography, this measured, accurate, and enthusiastic account of Smith’s career is written for her loyal fans as well as for neophytes hungry for a great rock ‘n’ roll story. Guided by interviews with those who have known her—including Ivan Kral, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, John Cale, and Jim Carroll—it relies most of all on Patti’s own words.

In the Spirit of St Barths

In spite of an airport runway that’s not for the faint-hearted, St. Barths is synonymous with Caribbean elegance and chic. In this celebratory volume Pamela Fiori, a regular visitor for both work and pleasure shares the legacy of the island. Through interviews with locals and regulars, many of them boldface names, she shows off the best beaches, villas with extraordinary views, and some of the island’s most memorable destination weddings. A final chapter, “Essential St. Barths,” features Fiori’s pick of hotels, villa rental companies, event planners, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops.

Outline, Rachel Cusk

Outline is a novel in ten conversations. Spare and lucid, it follows a novelist teaching a course in creative writing over an oppressively hot summer in Athens. She leads her student in storytelling exercises. She meets other writers for dinner. She goes swimming in the Ionian Sea with her seatmate from the place. The people she encounters speak volubly about themselves, their fantasies, anxieties, pet theories, regrets, and longings. And through these disclosures, a portrait of the narrator is drawn by contrast, a portrait of a woman learning to face great loss.
