This week's collection of new books includes coming of age stories, sagas passed down through the ages, and at least one mystery to untangle.
Starting in the far past, Albert T. Clay's 1920 translation of "The Epic of Gilgamesh" is now available. Fast forward two thousand years or so and join Julius Caesar as he strives against the peoples in Gaul, the Rhine, and Britain in "Commentaries on the Gallic War" from 58 BC.
Speaking of Britain, the other three new titles come from lauded authors of the British isles. Virginia Woolf's "Night and Day" and Catherine Carswell's "Open the Door!" both follow the romances, struggles, and lessons of women in early 20th century Britain. Finally, J.S. Fletcher's "Scarhaven Keep" travels to mysterious Scarhaven on the coast of England to untangle an actor's disappearance.
Until next week, happy reading!
