New Book Alert: November 18-22, 2019

My weekly collection of new and notable books for your pop culture pleasure and edification: #ReadMoreTweetLess.

What You Do Is Who You Are: How to Create Your Business Culture by Ben Horowitz (HarperBusiness; Business on sale October 29, 2019): Another our culture eats your strategy for breakfast: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” ~Mike Tyson. (Also check out Ben’s previous book from 2014: The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers) #NewBookAlert for November 18, 2019.

Face It: A Memoir by Debbie Harry (Dey Street Books; Music Memoir on sale October 1, 2019): Face It: While I enjoyed Blondie’s Rapture back in the day I’m hoping this Debbie Harry memoir explains: “Sure shot cause the man from Mars stopped eating cars.” Ummm, sure? The 80s are wonderfully weird. #NewBookAlert for November 19, 2019.

The Return of the Incredible Exploding Man by Dave Hutchinson (Solaris Books; Novel on sale September 3, 2019): “After the incident, Dolan finds himself changed…” So begins so many excellent sci-fi novels! Title is great too: The Return of the Incredible Exploding Man. Yo…I like all of those things! #NewBookAlert for November 20, 2019.

Lost Transmissions: The Secret History of Science Fiction and Fantasy by Desirina Boskovich (Abrams Books; Science Fiction on sale September 10, 2019): Jules Verne’s lost novel! William Gibson’s never-filmed Aliens sequel! It’s all here…and so much more. Some of the best sci-fi is the stuff we coulda had but sadly…did not. There is a parallel universe where Tom Selleck is Indiana Jones, right? #NewBookAlert for November 21, 2019.

Horror Stories: A Memoir by Liz Phair (Random House; Memoir on sale October 8, 2019): All’s Phair in Liz and Books…that’s so horror-able right? Thankfully Liz Phair’s memoir Horror Stories is much better! #NewBookAlert for November 22, 2019.
