In This Issue

Among the 25 reviews this week: The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell--the NBA-winning author of Hamnet--the "immersive and poignant story" of the woman who inspired Robert Browning's poem "My Last Duchess"; Amy Sarig King's Attack of the Black Rectangles, in which a sixth-grade teacher redacts "areas of the book made some students very uncomfortable"; and The Weekend Cook by Angela Hartnett, who "advocates for informal, uncomplicated cooking"; plus so many more.

Sidik Fofana talks in The Writer's Life about his debut, Stories from the Tenants Downstairs, centered on eight residents of a fictional Harlem apartment building, and also gives readers a peek into his real life as a public school teacher in Brooklyn.
