The books we’re most looking forward to this week

Tommy Orange’s 2018 debut novel There There was a sensation, winning countless awards and accolades. Wandering Stars is Orange’s new novel, connects to the timeline of There There—but we won’t say how, and we advise readers to go in as uninformed as possible. We will say it’s not necessary to have read the earlier book first to appreciate this new one, and even Orange’s fans may want to go back to take in There There by the light of Wandering Stars.

NBA fans grow familiar with some regular courtside faces. Fans in Los Angeles have known to expect actor Jack Nicholson sitting courtside for Lakers games. And a Knicks home game at Madison Square Garden isn’t complete without writer/director Spike Lee in prominent attendance. And while the Toronto Raptors often see rapper Drake sitting courtside, the league’s sole Canadian team has a unique regular attendee in Nav Bhatia, a car salesman from just outside of Toronto who’s been driving into the city to attend Raptors home games since 1995. The Heart of a Superfan: A memoir of grit, love, family and basketball is Bhatia’s story—from immigrating to Canada to escape sectarian violence in India to earning a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame for his dedication to the game and sports-related philanthropy throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

Critics often get a bad rap. But great criticism can be as much of a revelation as great art: a truly gifted critic can enlighten even experts on why something is great, why this resonates so deeply while that is less striking, leaving readers with a new appreciation for a work or even a whole area of human endeavours. Great critics help us all be a little smarter. Pulitzer Prize winner Carlos Lozada is a great critic. In The Washington Book: How to Read Politics and Politicians, Lozada shows that politicians are constantly telling us who they really are, regardless of the rhetoric they employ on the campaign trail or in office. The key, says Lozada, is in their writings—much of it in books such as those written by Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, and Ron DeSantis, as well as books by others that politicians choose to contribute to, such as Donald Trump’s appearance in a self-help book from over twenty years ago. We’ll leave it to Lozado’s fellow critics to test his argument (certainly the prevalence of ghost writers complicates things) but if it comes down to recommending that people turn off cable news and read books instead, then we find his position 100% correct and absolutely unassailable.
