Patti Smith's elegiac text is dripping with nostalgia – beautiful. She is a poet, and she wasted not one line reminding us of that. Her descriptions of New York squalor aren't off-putting but optimistic, easy arguments for the beauty that lies below the grime and frustration, the opportunities (not to be wasted or forgotten) behind every hand-shake. Beyond Smith's love for the city that shaped her talent is the love she shared with Mapplethorpe, a tumultuous love that one can easily empathize with and a love that should be shared. A book for every music lover – a great gift for dear friends.

Fates and Furies, though filled with surprises and mysteries, is, at its center, the beautiful unwrapping of a marriage. Told first from the husband’s perspective (the fated romance), and then the wife’s (the repressed fury, consumed by evolving and growing love), Lauren Groff’s newest novel is ripe with colorful and curious characters, gritty Southern and crisp Northern landscapes, and language both beautiful and chaotic. Readers experience each success and devastation as though characters in the story themselves, friends of Lancelot (Lotto) and Mathilde—invested in their happiness and fascinated by their histories.

City on Fire is a novel drenched in nostalgia and coated with grit and a surprising and welcomed amount of generosity: Hallberg has crafted an intricate story of human connection and condition, of complicated and fragile relationships. He has captured the unbelievable, random, and colliding nature(s) of many characters intertwined so intricately with a city and with a culture—1970s New York City—and the result (over 900 pages) is not a weighty burden but a joy. After you’ve finished City on Fire, you will want to gift it (again and again, along with a thoughtful mixtape—think Billy Joel and Television) to your favorite music- and book-lovers. Truly a wonder.
