Summer Is Coming. Bring a Book.

When the daughter of former President Matthew Keating is kidnapped, he draws on all his experience — as a global leader, parent and Navy SEAL — to bring her home. The dead woman was one of the Maidens, a group of female students in thrall to a charismatic professor who is Mariana’s prime suspect. Could his killer be Laura, the off-kilter woman who went home with him and was later seen covered in blood? The flaws of each character will surprise and perhaps even enchant you — and only a clairvoyant could anticipate the book’s ending. Issenberg’s new book chronicles the 25 years leading up to that moment.

Stacey Abrams, Hillary Clinton and Why Politicians Write Fiction
  + stars: | 2021-05-11 | by ( Mark Yarm | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
But a different sort of trend is making a comeback in 2021: Big-name politicians are writing fiction. Stacey Abrams’s While Justice Sleeps, which centers on Avery Keene, a law clerk for a U.S. Supreme Court justice, is out May 11. (The former Georgia gubernatorial candidate has also written eight romance titles under the pen name Selena Montgomery.) Another part of the appeal is the insider knowledge that people like the Clintons can bring to the page. “With the first book, there were certain reviewers who said, ‘I know exactly what Clinton wrote and what Patterson wrote,’” he recalls.

Hester Ford was either 115 or 116 years old depending on which census report was accurate. Either way, she was the oldest living American when she died Saturday in Charlotte, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which tracks “supercentenarians.” They listed her age as 115 years and 245 days. She married John Ford at age 14, and gave birth to the first of her 12 children at age 15. Her husband died in 1963 at age 57, three years after the couple moved to Charlotte. “She not only represented the advancement of our family but of the Black African American race and culture in our country.
