Red Rabbit
by Tom Clancy
Long before he was President or head of the CIA, before he fought terrorist attacks on the Super Bowl or the White House, even before a submarine named Red October made its perilous way across the Atlantic, Jack Ryan was an historian, teacher, and recent ex-Marine temporarily living in England while researching a book. A series of deadly encounters with an IRA splinter group had brought him to the attention of the CIA's Deputy Director, Vice Admiral James Greer-as well as his counterpart with the British SIS, Sir Basil Charleston-and when Greer asked him if he wanted to come aboard as a freelance analyst, Jack was quick to accept. The opportunity was irresistible, and he was sure he could fit it in with the rest of his work.

And then Jack forgot all about the rest of his work, because one of his first assignments was to help debrief a high-level Soviet defector who told an amazing tale: Top Soviet officials, including Yuri Andropov, were planning to assassinate the Pope, John Paul II.

Could it be true? As the days and weeks go by, Ryan must battle, first to try to confirm the plot, and then to prevent it, but this is a brave new world, and nothing he has done up to now has prepared him for the lethal game of cat-and-mouse that is the Soviet Union versus the United States. In the end, it will be not just the Pope's life but the stability of the Western world that is at stake...and it may already be too late for a novice CIA analyst to do anything about it.

The Unknown Errors of Our Lives
by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
In tales set in India and the United States, Divakaruni illuminates the transformations of personal landscapes, real and imagined, brought about by the choices men and women make at every stage of their lives.

"The Love of a Good Man" tells of an Indian woman happily settled in the United States who must confront the past when her long-estranged father begs to meet his only grandson. In "Mrs. Dutta Writes a Letter," which was selected for The Best American Short Stories 1999 and short-listed for a 1999 O. Henry Award, a widow, inadvertently eavesdropping, discovers that her cherished, old-fashioned ways are an embarrassment to her daughter-in-law. A young American woman joins a pilgrimage of women in Kashmir and, in the land of her ancestors, comes to view herself and her family in a new light in "The Lives of Strangers," Two women, uprooted from their native land by violence and deception, find unexpected comfort and hope in each other in "The Blooming Season for Cacti." And in the title story, a young woman turns to her painting and the wisdom of her grandmother for the strength to accept ther fiance's past when it arrives on her doorstep.

Whether Divakaruni is writing about the adjustments of immigrants to a foreign land or the accommodations families make to the disruptive differences between generations, she poignantly portrays the eternal struggle to find a balance between the pull of home and the alluring promise of change.

by Lauren Weisberger
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns continues the story of Andy, now in her thirties, and Miranda Priestly.

Andy, a successful magazine co-editor with her former nemesis Emily, is getting married. While she dreams of a happy obstacle-free wedding, her former boss, Miranda Priestly, is back in her life. This novel narrates the events ten years after Andy Sachs quit her job as Miranda Priestly's assistant at Runway magazine. While most people would kill to have that job, Andy along with Emily, moved on and started working for a successful bridal magazine, The Plunge. Both women enjoy controlling the marketing and editing of this magazine.

From planning media parties to securing more clients, Andy does it all. She meets Max Harrison, the head of a media empire, during this wonderful period in her life. The plot does not just deal with Andy finding her soul mate. It also includes Miranda, who tries to claw her way back to the top. But first, she has to pretend to be nicer and friendlier before she can play with the top guns. The only problem standing in Miranda's way is Andy. Will she be able to secure high-end clients like Rafael Nadal.

The wedding becomes front page news. But, all the happiness comes to a screeching halt as Andy receives a letter that changes her life for good. All her efforts to build a better life and career ends. Will she be able to recover and salvage what she has built for ten years. With the Devil back in the picture, will Andy have her dream wedding or will she have to succumb to unreasonable demands.
