3 New Books About Taking on the World
At one point or another, when things go wrong, most of us have felt like the whole world is against us. This can be as simple as having a day when absolutely nothing goes your way, or as complex as dealing with enraging hierarchical social systems and rules that clearly stack the deck against any hope of success. If we’re lucky, though, at least we’ll have someone else to rail with us against the Powers That Be. The protagonists of each of the new novels in this week’s book club are facing some stiff competition from an uncaring universe, but each one has someone valuable to protect and a reason to fight for another day. Keep these books in your back pocket for when you need a pep talk against seemingly insurmountable odds.
