Isabel Allende’s new novel is a thriller called Ripper. Her fiction “confounds expectations,” wrote the Times Literary Supplement. “We make our way at an impetuous pace through an extravagantly imagined world.” Elizabeth Gilbert’s new novel is The Signature of All Things. Her “prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible,” wrote Jennifer Egan.
