In “Desperado,” his last novel, Manuel Ramos introduced Gus Corral, a North Denver Hispanic man with good intentions and bad instincts. Now Ramos brings back an older, more mature Gus in “My Bad,” and teams him up with Luis Montez, a lawyer from Ramos’ early books.
It’s a brilliant combination, and as a result, “My Bad” is arguably Ramos’ finest novel.
Corral has just been released from prison for unspecified crimes and is determined to turn around his life, despite a hard-nosed parole officer who’s betting against him.

Halfway through “North of Crazy” is a rabidly honest sentence, one of many in a cathartic memoir that often reads like an extended artist’s statement. Delighting in her children sneaking cookies, unable to scold them, Neltje writes, “Discipline did not come easy to me because I thought like a child, and I often still do.”
Neltje, who goes by a solo name, acknowledges herself here as the daughter of publishing magnate Nelson Doubleday; sister to his heir, Nelson; child of a less-than-tender socialite mother, Ellen; and ex-wife of John Sargent, who became Doubleday’s president in a family and business built on power and fear.
The memoir covers 78 years of her life — almost, akin to Neltje’s current 10×30 paintings, more than can be taken in. In these pages, we learn how a woman shakes off the first 30 years of an opulent, literary yet suffocating life to discover her own true nature, that echo of childhood that leads her to a fantastic, frontier landscape in Wyoming, where a bitter past can melt like mountain water in an arroyo.
Early on, Neltje vividly describes the warm moments of her childhood in Bonny Hall, the family plantation in Yemassee, S.

Ahhh, how great to be back in Seattle, to the most precious and lampoonable version of that city as seen through the worried eyes of Eleanor Flood, the narrator and antiheroine of Maria Semple’s inventive third novel, “Today Will Be Different.”
Eleanor is chronically disappointed in herself, in her versions of wife- and motherhood; in her degrees of kindness, friendship, organization, pet ownership and yoga attendance.
The line everybody knows from “The Tempest” — whether they’ve seen it or not — comes late in the play when young Miranda spies the shipwrecked men on her father’s magical island and exclaims, “O brave new world, that has such people in ’t!” That’s a charmingly naive reaction because we understand that these characters are neither goodly nor beauteous, as she supposes.
It’s hard not to bring the same cynical understanding to the publishing industry, which keeps trying to pass off waterlogged ideas as fresh.

In the first pages of Ben Macintyre’s riveting new history, you learn that the idea for a revolutionary fighting force — a commando unit that became the prototype for special forces around the world — was conceived not in the heat of battle but from the acute boredom of a sickbed.
Specifically, the sickbed of one David Stirling.
