Purity
Purity
by Jonathan Franzen
Staff Pick
Purity focuses on its namesake, a drifting 20-something , and Andreas Wolf, a Julian Assange stand-in whose dubious morality drives her to unexpected destinations. The fast-paced story spans decades and continents without losing sight of its characters' motivations and quotidian concerns; it is Franzen's most approachable novel to date.

The Fall of Princes
The Fall of Princes
by Robert Goolrick
Staff Pick
Some books are meant to be sipped and savored, others consumed whole. The Fall of Princes should be ingested in a single marathon session like one of the cocaine- and champagne-induced benders it so vividly depicts. Goolrick perfectly captures the arrogance and hubris of New York in the 1980s. His characters wallow in the Gatsbyesque decadence before ultimately seeking redemption.

Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture -- and What We Can Do about It
Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture -- and What We Can Do about It
by Kate Harding
Staff Pick
Asking for It is not a fun book, but it is an important one. Harding presents stories and statistics exposing America's rape culture, showing that our unwillingness as a society to take rape seriously drastically affects victims as well as perpetrators. Thankfully, she also suggests ways we can take action on both the individual and community level.
