SHAKESPEARE STORIES By Leon Garfield, The New York Review Children’s Collection $24.95

Although published by the NYRB’s Children’s collection, kids might have a hard time getting this book away from their parents. The Bard’s plays, 21 of them, are transformed into simple stories while maintaining all his wit and wisdom. The familiar quotes we still use in modern language are intact and Michael Foreman’s amusing illustrations are delightful aids to following the stories. Even well versed Bard aficionados may find nuances cleverly hidden in the plays. 




AFTER THE CRASH By Michel Bussi,Hachette $27.00

When a plane with 169 passengers aboard crashed into a mountainside of the Swiss Alps all aboard were killed except, incredibly, a 3-month-old infant girl found unhurt several yards away from the burning wreckage. A miracle baby? There were two infant girls of that age aboard the plane and two sets of grandparents both claiming the miracle baby was theirs. Enter Credule Grand-Duc (a name he despised), a successful private detective, who was hired to solve the mystery, but after 18 frustrating years, suicidal and on the verge of giving up, he suddenly discovers a secret hidden in plain view. This is a tantalizing mystery with an unexpected conclusion.
