'Sisterland' by Curtis Sittenfeld
Sittenfeld returns with the story of twin sisters: Vi, a professed psychic, and Kate, a wife and mother in denial of her talents.

'Fin & Lady' by Cathleen Schine
Fin is 11 when his parents die in 1964, and he is sent to live with his older sister, Lady. But Lady is a free spirit, and Fin soon realizes he's as much her caregiver as she is his.
'Amy Falls Down' by Jincy Willett
A sequel of sorts to her last book The Writing Class, Amy Falls Down also stars bitter novelist Amy Gallup. When an interviewer arrives shortly after Amy takes a nasty bump on the head, the resulting article—where Amy's rambling quotes are dubbed pure genius—turns around her failing career.

It's been too long since the National Book Award-winning author released a book. This time it's a collection of short stories about scientific firsts—subject matter that Barrett fans love to see her sink her teeth into.
