The Week in Books

We take the weekend to highlight some of the recent books coverage in The Times:

George W. Bush’s two terms as president are already turning up as the subject of historical fiction. Thomas Mallon, the author of many Washington novels, revisits the Bush years in “Landfall.”

We reviewed two biographies of major American figures, one whose legend looms large (Wild Bill Hickok) and one who remains practically unknown (Sarah Polk, the wife of James K. Polk, the 11th American president).

The journalist and critic Janet Malcolm answers our By the Book questions.

From The Times’s staff critics:

In his new novel, “Leading Men,” Christopher Castellani reimagines the real-life relationship between Tennessee Williams and his longtime partner, Frank Merlo. Dwight Garner says the novel “casts a spell right from the start.”

Parul Sehgal reviews “Lost Children Archive,” Valeria Luiselli’s retelling of the American road novel, with a twist. You can also read our recent profile of the widely acclaimed Luiselli.
