October brings lots of exciting titles, so put aside the cider, apples and all things Fall and savor these new releases.
THE PARIS ARCHITECT BY CHARLES BELFOURE (October 8, Sourcebooks Landmark) A unique, dark approach to World War II fiction, The Paris Architect is unforgettable. Lucien has been asked to design clever hiding places for Jews in occupied France. Initially, the profits draw him in, especially at a time when people acted out of desperation, but the work becomes personal as Lucien dances the fine line between good and evil. —Alison Skap
THE SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS BY ELIZABETH GILBERT (October 1, Viking Adult) Victorian literature lovers rejoice! In a departure from memoir, Gilbert treats readers to an intimately told 19th-century story. Filled with incredible writing, strongly realized characters, and seamless research, this is a marvel of a book. A magnificent blend of science, religion, duty, and desire, this is possibly Gilbert's magnum opus. - Kelly Massry
WE ARE WATER BY WALLY LAMB (October 22, Harper) Lamb offers an intricate glimpse into a thoroughly modern family during the very dynamic recent past, proving how complex our lives have become and the toll that complexity plays on the family as an organism. The characters are rich in detail and vibrate with vitality. We Are Water is a beautifully wrought story of the ties that bind and break. —Michelle Shannon
THE GOLDFINCH BY DONNA TARTT (October 22, Little, Brown & Co.) Thirteen year-old Theo has a singular reminder of the moments he shared with his mother before she was killed in a horrific accident: a mysterious painting by a famous Dutch artist. The painting both guides and haunts Theo, from his aimless adolescence to his misguided adulthood. Tartt's ambitious new novel is a welcome treat for fans and new readers alike. —Shannon Nemer
