The books we’re most looking forward to this week

Gabriel García Márquez, the Nobel Prize–winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, among other beloved literary works, passed away in 2014 at the age of 87. As we near the 10th anniversary of his death, his sons Rodrigo and Gonzalo García Barcha are publishing a book he abandoned at the end of his life. Until August is a brief work, not even 100 pages, and it has been described as unique among the author’s works for lacking the richness of vocabulary that readers around the world find so enchanting about his books. For that reason, some have objected to the book seeing light of day, suggesting that his sons should have done to it what their father used to have them do to all of his abandoned projects: destroy it completely. Even Rodrigo and Gonzalo describe their decision as “a betrayal,” but one they’ve carried out for the sake of “readers’ pleasure.” We’re sure “Gabo” will forgive his boys for it.

Podcaster Jane Marie has won numerous awards for her work on This American Life, and with her own show The Dream she’s become a well-known expert on multilevel marketing companies, aka. MLMs. In Selling the Dream: The Billion-Dollar Industry Bankrupting Americans, she takes us inside the way these companies sell a promise of entrepreneurship, usually to women, focusing on areas where more reliable employment is less available than it used to be. Marie shows how MLMs’ success depends on convincing individuals that success is something they share with the brand but failure is theirs alone, which is why for 99.7% of people who join an MLM it’s a money-losing experience.

Gilead author Marilynne Robinson is unusual among celebrated American literary figures for her subtle and sympathetic treatment of religion in her novels, and her openness about the role her Congregationalist Christian faith plays in her personal and intellectual life. She has also published several non-fiction books on politics, history, and religion. In Reading Genesis Robinson delivers an appreciation of the book of Genesis, the first book of the Christian Old Testament and the Hebrew bible, as a work of literary art that has much to offer believers through interpretation. In a time of fraught culture wars where religion is often pitted against art, it’s thrilling to have a creative mind like Robinson’s engaging with one of the world’s best-known creation stories.
