I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you could never work out the rules, even if you spent all your time thinking about them.
Christopher Boone is extremely intelligent and logical, but certain everyday interactions leave him upset and confused. When the neighbor’s dog is killed one night, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery. In attempting to learn the truth about the dog’s death, Christopher learns about secrets previously unknown in his own life. Mark Haddon’s 2003 challenged novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a story of truth, lies loss, forgiveness, and family.

In the author’s first novel, Ailey Pearl Garfield, a young African American woman, seeks to come to terms with her identity by journeying through her family’s past, uncovering tales of generations of ancestors—Indigenous, Black, and White—in the Deep South. She discovers a legacy of oppression and resistance, bondage and independence, cruelty and resilience that is the story—and the song—of America itself.
These days, what and where we eat says as much about us as the clothes we wear or the places we live, and social media has allowed us to share our private food experiences as never before. But this fixation is not new. “As a species, we’re hardwired to obsess over food,” says author Matt Siegel. In this entertaining exploration of the historical, cultural, scientific, sexual, and culinary subcultures of this most essential part of life, Siegel sets out to uncover “the hidden side of everything we put in our mouths.”
