Those who enjoy sneak peeks of books are in massive luck today.

From Literary Hub, we have excerpts of The Lying Life of Adults by Elena Ferrante, What Are You Going Through by Sigrid Nunez, and Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi (who reads her snippet, by the way).

The Lying Life of Adults is a coming-of-age tale set in a divided Naples, translated, like Ferrante's celebrated Neapolitan quartet, by Ann Goldstein.

What Are You Going Through examines human connections by recounting the normal — and then extraordinary — conversations one woman has with other people, throughout her life.

Transcendent Kingdom follows a Ghanian native pursuing her PhD in Alabama and her quest to explain her family’s losses, both via science and faith.

In the New York Times, we have excerpts from JFK by Fredrik Logevall and Monogamy by Sue Miller.

JFK is, of course, a biography of the thirty-fifth president, but this one aims to uncover the “real” John F. Kennedy.

Monogamy explores the reaction to a recently widowed woman to the discovery that her late husband had been unfaithful to her.
