The Plot
By Jean Hanff Korelitz

Book Cover


"A washed-up writer accepts a teaching job in a third-rate creative writing program. His most irritating student says he doesn't need any help with his writing because his plot is a surefire winner. When he discovers that his former student has died unexpectedly, he decides to "borrow" the plot. There are twists within twists in this dark and suspenseful tale - which ones will you see coming?" Harwinton Library Staff Member.

Born a Crime
by Trevor Noah.

Lions of Fifth Avenue


Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to TV host began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. A story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist.
