Today's much-anticipated release is the new Ann Patchett novel, State of Wonder. It's a return to South America for the author of the bestseller Bel Canto (shown here in a distinctly non-tropical setting). The new book's about a research scientist searching for a lost colleague in the Amazon jungle. The dust jacket promises loads of perilous action: Poison arrows! Cannibals!... New in paperback: Are you bonkers for bonobos? Vanessa Woods' memoir Bonobo Handshake makes for a good non-fiction companion to Laurence Gonzales' novel Lucy (itself due in paperback in July)... Traveling Pants sister Ann Brashares' novel of reincarnation, My Name is Memory, also debuts in paperback today.
