By Jill Lepore (Knopf $27.95)
Harvard Professor Jill Lepore reprises many articles she’s written for the New Yorker magazine that are still as provocative as ever. Do we, as famous Physician William Harvey imagined in the early 17th century, originate from eggs? Like chicks? Not so, as we now know, but back in King James I’s time, it was believed conceivable. (No pun intended). As for dying, that used to occur at home until the 1950s when it moved to hospitals where doctors and machines worked to prolong life, until by the 1960s, the dying put off death for at least 80 days before passing. “The longer we live, the longer we die.”


By James Patterson & Marshall Karp (Little, Brown $27.99)

In this terrifically suspenseful novel, the Special Police Task Force charged with protecting movie celebrities during a Hollywood festival is strained to the breaking point. When a famous producer fatally collapses at breakfast, apparently from poisoning, Detective Zach Jordan and his beautiful partner (and former girlfriend) go to work to find the killer. This turns out to be the least of their problems as a psychopathic killer threatens to send all New York City into chaos. It’s another Patterson thriller and hard to put down.
