Joe Biden [sound recording(CD)] : the life, the run, and what matters now / Evan Osnos.

  • 1 March 2021
cover imageAn examination of Democratic Nominee Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s lifelong quest for the presidency by National Book Award winner Evan Osnos, adapted from nearly a decade of his reporting for The New Yorker. Former vice president Joseph R. Biden Jr. has been called both the luckiest man and the unluckiest--fortunate to have sustained a fifty-year political career that reached the White House, but also marked by deep personal losses and disappointments that he has suffered. Yet even as Biden's life has been shaped by drama, it has also been powered by a willingness, rare at the top ranks of politics, to confront his shortcomings, errors, and reversals of fortune. As he says, "Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable." His trials have forged in him a deep empathy for others in hardship--an essential quality as he addresses Americans in the nation's most dire hour in decades. Osnos draws on his work for The New Yorker to capture the characters and meaning of an extraordinary presidential election. It is based on lengthy interviews with Biden and on revealing conversations with more than a hundred others, including President Barack Obama, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, and a range of progressive activists, advisers, opponents, and Biden family members. This portrayal illuminates Biden's long and eventful career in the Senate, his eight years as Obama's vice president, his sojourn in the political wilderness after being passed over for Hillary Clinton in 2016, his decision to challenge Donald Trump for the presidency, and his choice of Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Osnos ponders the difficulties Biden will face if elected and weighs how political circumstances, and changes in the candidate's thinking, have altered his positions. In this nuanced portrait, Biden emerges as flawed, yet resolute, and tempered by the flame of tragedy--a man who just may be uncannily suited for his moment in history.

Rude [sound recording (CD)] : stop being nice and start being bold / Rebecca Reid.

  • 26 February 2021
cover imageA timely, intelligent, and entertaining exploration of why ambitious women are often perceived as rude and how the power of rudeness can be harnessed in relationships, in bed, at work, and in everyday life--from journalist Rebecca Reid. During a TV interview with a comedian, Rebecca Reid found herself unable to get a word in edgewise. So, when she put her finger to her lips and shushed him, she became instantly known on the internet as "Rebecca Rude." It was only then that she realized that being rude could actually be her superpower. A captivating blend of advice and pop culture, Rude will show you how to utilize the power of boldness in every area of your life. Exploring famous women who have been perceived as rude--including Princess Margaret, Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift, Meghan Markle, and others--this book demonstrates how those women used their "rudeness" to get what they want--and deserve--out of life. Reid also addresses whether there are different rules of rudeness for women compared to men (yes, there are) and how being taught not to be rude actually prevents women from being successful--especially because when women are assertive, they are often judged as being aggressive. And while there's a place for politeness, Rebecca argues that it's never a bad time to stand up for yourself to achieve your dreams.

The pandemic century [sound recording (CD)] : one hundred years of panic, hysteria, and hubris / Mark Honigsbaum.

  • 24 February 2021
cover imageMark Honigsbaum combines reportage with the history of science and medical sociology to artfully reconstruct epidemiological mysteries and the ecology of infectious diseases. We meet dedicated disease detectives, obstructive or incompetent public health officials, and brilliant scientists often blinded by their own knowledge of bacteria and viruses. Like man-eating sharks, predatory pathogens are always present in nature, waiting to strike; when one is seemingly vanquished, others appear in its place. These pandemics remind us of the limits of scientific knowledge, as well as the role that human behavior and technologies play in the emergence and spread of microbial diseases.

Robert Ludlum's the Treadstone exile [sound recording (CD)] / Joshua Hood.

  • 24 February 2021
cover imageHood's fast-paced sequel to 2019's Robert Ludlum's The Treadstone Resurrection finds Adam Hayes, a former operative for Treadstone, a CIA unit that "turned him into a government-sanctioned assassin," in Ceuta, Spain, where he's feeling proud of himself for not having killed anyone in 152 days. He's left his wife and child behind in America and gone on the run after the U.S. government declared him persona non grata. In Ceuta, he becomes involved in a smuggling ring, and the no-kill record is soon broken. Meanwhile, Andre Cabot, the founder and CEO of a cybersecurity firm, is in financial difficulty, and decides to steal his way back into solvency. Hayes lands right in the middle of Cabot's plans and must be dealt with. Never mind cliched prose ("get the hell out of Dodge"), a surfeit of backstory, and voices in the heads of Hayes and other characters that yammer at them in italics. Few thriller fans will be able to resist as the author hauls them by their necks down many rough roads while Hayes mows down the opposition.

Born to die / Lisa Jackson.

  • 24 February 2021
cover imageA sad, strange coincidence, that's Dr. Kacey Lambert's initial response to the deaths of two women who bear an uncanny resemblance to herself. It's not like there was any real connection between Kacey and the B-movie actress or the elementary school teacher. But Detective Selena Alvarez suspects otherwise. One of the bodies contained traces of poison at the time of death. Selena and her partner, Detective Regan Pescoli, can find no motive for murder. But Kacey has started to notice ties between the dead women's lives and her own, all close in age, born within miles of each other. And all have links to Trace O'Halleran, the man Kacey just started dating. The deeper Kacey digs, the more reason she has to fear. More look-alikes are dying, and the killer is getting bolder and more brutal. And Kacey knows it's only a matter of time before hers is the next name on a list of those who were born to die.

Life's not perfect, but with a fly girlfriend and a cousin who always has his back, Mav's got everything under control. Until he finds out he's a father. Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. But it's not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. So when he's offered the chance to go straight, he takes it. In a world where he's expected to amount to nothing, maybe Mav can prove he's different. With King Lord blood running through his veins, though, he can't just walk away.
