FICTION
 
Of this dazzling novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen, our reviewer Al Woodworth wrote: "Political, historical, romantic and comic, The Sympathizer is a rich and hugely gratifying story that captures the complexity of the [Vietnam] war and what it means to be of two minds."

DRAMA
 
If you haven't heard of Hamilton by now, you must be living under a rock. This smash hit musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda is about a down-and-out kid from the Caribbean who battled the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States.

HISTORY
 
We were a bit dubious when Senior Editor Chris Schluep first told us that this was a riveting read. A biography of Custer? Really?! He was so right when he said that, "T.J. Stiles' writing...sets this biography apart from so many others."

Another in-house favorite was Barbarian Days by William Finnegan, a deeply rendered self-portrait of a lifelong surfer.
