Jane's Pick
Pat Barker's
The Silence of the Girls

The retelling of Homer’s epic poem focuses on the cost of war to women through the story of Briseis, Achilles’ concubine.

Her story pulls back the veil on the thousands of women who lived behind the scenes of the Greek army camp—concubines, nurses, prostitutes, the women who lay out the dead—as gods and mortals spar, and as a legendary war hurtles toward its inevitable conclusion.

A Study in Charlotte

The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school near his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: it is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited Sherlock’s genius and volatile temperament. From the moment they meet, it is tense, but when a student dies and Jamie and Charlotte are framed for the murder, it's Charlotte who can clear their names.

Ta-Nehisi Coates'
The Water Dancer

"The Water Dancer is a jeroboam of a book, a crowd-pleasing exercise in breakneck and often occult storytelling that tonally resembles the work of Stephen King as much as it does the work of Toni Morrison, Colson Whitehead and the touchstone African-American science-fiction writer Octavia Butler."                                              - New York Times
