《白色常春藤》(White Ivy),作者:苏茜·杨(Susie Yang)

11月3日发售

这本小说是苏茜·杨的处女作,彻底颠覆了美国梦的经典理想。书中有令人吃惊的转折,也对阶级和种族作了细微探索。《白色常春藤》(西蒙与舒斯特公司出版)让人们看到不惜一切代价渴望成功的女性阴暗面。本书已经被多家出版社评选为年度最佳图书,而且可能很快从文字变身热门迷你剧。经过七方竞价战,最终由Netflix购得版权。电视圈大佬桑德·莱姆斯将操刀改编。

《一辈子》(One Life ),作者:梅根·拉皮诺(Megan Rapinoe)和艾玛·布鲁克斯(Emma Brockes)

11月10日发售

梅根·拉皮诺身为美国最伟大运动员之一的地位已然稳固,但除了在足球场上获得的巨大成就,她也是数百万人的偶像和伙伴。近年来,她是同工同酬运动的代言人之一,也是第一位播放国歌期间行屈膝礼、公开支持科林·卡佩尼克和黑人平权运动、不惧赌上自己职业生涯的白人运动员。在《一辈子》一书中(企鹅出版社出版),拉皮诺讨论了每个人都应该大胆发声的义务,也审视了人们能够对社区发挥的影响。

《应许之地》(A Promised Land),作者:贝拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)

11月17日发售

豪不夸张地说,本书是当季最值得期待的一本,甚至可能是本年度最值得期待的作品。众所周知,美国前总统奥巴马之前就经常拖稿,这次也不例外。尽管出版日期定在11月3日大选日之后从而招致一些批评,但毫无疑问,奥巴马回忆录三部曲中的第一本将立即登上畅销榜,而且立刻会涌出大批书评。《应许之地》(Crown出版社出版)将坦率讲述美国第44任总统第一个任期的经历,涉及在大萧条以来最严重的金融危机期间上台,到《平价医疗法案》(Affordable Care Act)通过等等。读者应该已经发现,抽出时间仔细阅读这本700多页的书很有必要;三部曲的第二本和第三本出版日期尚未确定。

《没有像未来一样的时光:乐观主义者如何思考死亡》(No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality),作者:迈克尔·J·福克斯(Michael J. Fox)

11月17日发售

在同代演员中,很少有人能够像迈克尔·J·福克斯一样广受欢迎。这位《回到未来》(Back to the Future)系列电影的主角曾经写过两本畅销回忆录《幸运儿》(Lucky Man)和《永远向上看》(Always Looking Up),讲述了自己如何接受帕金森氏症诊断,始终保持标志性的乐观和轻松。最新这本回忆录重新考虑了人生观,因为他过去十年的经历带来了更多挑战。在《没有像未来一样的时光:乐观主义者如何思考死亡》一书中(Flatiron Books出版社出版),福克斯分享了自身经历,以及对疾病和健康、老龄化、家庭和朋友力量的观察,也谈到了人们对时间的感知如何影响看待死亡的方式。

《没啥功能的小废柴:其实我很有用好吗》(Barely Functional Adult: It’ll All Make Sense Eventually ),作者:黄美琪(Meichi Ng)

11月24日发售

如果不是千禧一代生人(也许有些千禧一代)都会对这句老生常谈翻白眼,“成年人的生活很难”,尤其是在2020年。这四个数字无需解释,但这部改编自流行网络漫画的作品巧妙地用黑色幽默方式,让人们深刻思考焦虑、冒充综合症,人际关系,以及似乎毫无理由就会站在冷冻食品货架旁崩溃哭泣,其实有充分的理由。(而且所有理由都有道理。)(财富中文网)

A page-turning debut novel that has already been optioned by Netflix for Shonda Rhimes to produce; a collection of short stories based on a popular web comic about impostor syndrome, anxiety, and every other possible feeling you have in 2020; and a trio of memoirs poised to tear up bestseller lists.

Here are six new books to consider reading in November.

White Ivy by Susie Yang

Available Nov. 3

In her debut novel, Susie Yang takes the classic ideal of the American dream and turns it inside out. Filled with surprising twists and a nuanced exploration of class and race, White Ivy (Simon & Schuster) is a glimpse into the dark side of a woman who yearns for success at any cost. Already named as one of the best books of the year by multiple publications, White Ivy could soon be one of the next big hits to translate from the page to the miniseries after a seven-way bidding war, eventually won by Netflix. And TV mogul Shonda Rhimes is attached to executive produce the limited series.

The Women I Think About at Night: Traveling the Paths of My Heroes by Mia Kankimäki, translated by Douglas Robinson

Available Nov. 10

Fortysomething, childless, and feeling stuck, Finnish author Mia Kankimäki takes that big leap we all fantasize about but never have the guts to do: She quits her job, sells her apartment, and travels the world. In a blend of travelogue, memoir, and biography, Kankimäki recounts her travels through Japan, Kenya, and Italy, while retracing the steps of 10 remarkable female pioneers from history.

One Life by Megan Rapinoe and Emma Brockes

Available Nov. 10

Megan Rapinoe has cemented her role as one of America’s greatest athletes, but beyond her massive professional success on the soccer field, Rapinoe has also become an icon and ally to millions. In recent years, she has become one of the faces of the equal pay movement, and she was the first white athlete to demonstrate public support for Colin Kaepernick and the Black Lives Matter movement by taking a knee during the national anthem in the face of consequences to her own career. In One Life (Penguin), Rapinoe discusses the obligation we all have to speak up and examines the impact each of us can have on our communities.

A Promised Land by Barack Obama

Available Nov. 17

It is not an understatement to say that this is the most anticipated book release of the season—if not the year. The former President of the United States is known for missing some of his publishing deadlines in the past, and this time was no exception. Although the publication date has drawn criticism for coming after Election Day on Nov. 3, there is no doubt that this, the first of three installments of Obama’s presidential memoirs, will become an instant bestseller and the subject of a million think pieces. A Promised Land (Crown) has been promised to be a candid look into the 44th President’s first term, from coming into office during the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression (at that time) to the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Readers should note they can take their time in poring over the 700-plus–page book; no dates have been set for the publication of the second and third volumes.

No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality by Michael J. Fox

Available Nov. 17

There are few actors of his generation as universally beloved as Michael J. Fox. His two previous bestselling memoirs, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up, dealt with how the Back to the Future actor came to terms with his Parkinson’s diagnosis, always maintaining his trademark optimism and light. His new memoir reassesses this outlook, as events in the past decade presented additional challenges. In No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality (Flatiron Books), Fox shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality.

Barely Functional Adult: It’ll All Make Sense Eventually by Meichi Ng

Available Nov. 24

Anyone who is not a millennial (and maybe some millennials, too) will roll their eyes at the oft-remarked phrase, “adulting is hard.” Well it is hard—especially in 2020. Those four numbers need no explanation, but this adaptation of a popular web comic series does a deft job of bringing dark humor and evoking poignant reflections about dealing with anxiety, impostor syndrome, relationships, and what it all means when you find yourself crying in the frozen food aisle for what seems like no good reason—but there is a good reason. (There’s no wrong reason, it turns out.)
