The maze of human memory is territory that Kazuo Ishiguro has made his own. In When We Were Orphans, his first novel in five years, he returns to this terrain. Christopher Banks, an English boy born in early-twentieth-century Shanghai, is orphaned at age nine when his mother and father both vanish. Sent to live in England, he grows up to become a renowned detective and, returns to Shanghai, where the Sino-Japanese War is raging, to solve the mystery of the disappearances. The story is straightforward. Its telling is remarkable.

Heart of Palm by Laura Lee Smith

Utina, Florida, is a small, down-at-the-heels southern town. Once enlivened by the trade in Palm Sunday palms and moonshine, Utina hasn't seen economic growth in decades, and no family is more emblematic of the local reality than the Bravos. Deserted by the patriarch years ago, the Bravos are held together in equal measure by love, unspoken blame, and tenuously brokered truces. Little do any of them know that Utina is about to meet the tide of development that has already engulfed the rest of Northeast Florida.
