The heiress who was “famous for being famous” while dominating celebrity gossip for a decade tells her own story in Paris: The Memoir by Paris Hilton. Now 42, Hilton reveals details of her upbringing that swung between extremes of parental indulgence and trauma. It’s mostly subject matter addressed in the 2020 documentary This is Paris, which set out to look with fresh eyes on Hilton, but in the book we get a lot more of Hilton’s particular perspective, including her views of her present manifestation as an innovator and entrepreneur. Paris joins the recently-released Pamela Anderson memoir Love, Pamela, and 2020’s Open Book by pop & reality star Jessica Simpson among recent memoirs by misunderstood (and yes, imperfect—and blonde) women.

Thomas Wharton’s The Book of Rain braids together three narrative threads to tell the story of the disaster of River Meadows, a fictional mining town known for “ghost ore,” a highly valued energy source. One story is told by a man trying to find his animal-loving sister who refused to leave the disaster area, another is a trader of exotic and endangered species, and the third is a flock of birds. Wharton’s last novel for adults was 2001’s Salamander, a book about a printer specializing in novelty books who is commissioned by a Slovakian count to create “the infinite book.” Wharton spent the intervening years writing a trilogy of books for children, marking The Book of Rain as a return to form, a book with big ideas at its core—environmental degradation and capitalism—crafted with ambitious artistic literary goals.

Lee Mandelo’s Feed them Silence also plays with environmental and economic themes, telling the story of a scientist in the near future developing a neurological interface to experience the perceptions of a wolf—one of the last left in the wild. Dr Sean Kell-Luddon’s research is funded by venture capitalists whose goals may run contrary to hers, and as she obsesses over her research she strains her marriage to the breaking point. Mandelo is a major figure in speculative fiction whose 2021 novel Summer Sons was a Kobo Staff Pick
