You Gotta Have It: Things to See, Hear and Cop This Month
Fire Shut Up in My Bones by Charles M. Blow
This New York Times writer's memoir about his transition from childhood in the Bayou to a world of "racial and sexual privilege" is the most compelling read of the fall and the kind of book that will inspire you to turn off the TV and curl up in front of the fire instead. Available in digital print and hardcover on September 23.
