Our November book club column also highlights a debut novel and the latest from Malcolm Gladwell—but the top paperback release this month, according to columnist Julie Hale, is “a fascinating exploration of gender, history and female friendship”—Tracy Chevalier’s Remarkable Creatures.
Reviewer Jessica Inman said, in her review of the hardcover edition, “There’s humor, romance and a down-to-earth kind of suspense. But most of all, there are the believable and well-crafted personal triumphs and tragedies of two women who defied convention and changed their corner of the world.”
