12 New Books We Recommend This Week

Fall fiction is here and ready to entertain you, as new novels by Nicole Krauss, Salman Rushdie and Nathan Englander can attest. In nonfiction, enhance your viewing of Ken Burns’s “Vietnam War” with James Reston Jr.’s “A Rift in the Earth,” the story of the controversy over Maya Lin’s Vietnam memorial. Two illuminating memoirs — one by a candidate, one by a journalist — will plunge you back into the thick of the 2016 election, but if that history is still a little too close for comfort, you can always take refuge in Scaachi Koul’s irreverent essay collection, “One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter.”
