What’s In the Mail?

I’ve got a short stack of new releases to read in the coming month that I’m excited to share with you!

First is The Next Convergence: The Future of Economic Growth in a Multispeed World by Nobel Prize winner Michael Spence.  Longlisted for the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year 2011, The Next Convergence describes how current economic trends will cause developing countries to catch up with advanced countries and the repercussions that are bound to ensue.  After reading Grand Pursuit by Sylvia Nasar (also longlisted for the Business Book of the Year), I’m eager to read another book about economics!

The next two books are historical in nature.  Mary Boleyn:  The Mistress of Kings by Alison Wier, is a non-fiction look at the famous mistress of King Henry VIII, and the woman who likely bore the King his illegitimate son.  Following in the footsteps of her highly acclaimed The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn, Weir presents new evidence about to change how we view this fascinating woman.

Finally, the much anticipated The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory, is the story of Jacquette, the Duchess of Bedford.  This real-life woman lived during the time of the Wars of the Roses and helped her daughter, Elizabeth Woodville to become the Queen of England.  I’m looking forward to reading another exciting work of historical fiction by this terrific author!
