The eleventh month on the calendar finds us doing more reading inside while curling up under blankets, drinking hot beverages, and if you’re lucky, sitting by a fireplace. All these things really make November a perfect 30 days to take advantage of the cornucopia of titles that will help you make it through the always entertaining Thanksgiving weekend, and the inevitable first bout of gross weather the month usually likes to surprise us with.

It’s been twelve years since Hilton Als put out The Women. Thankfully the New Yorker critic is back with this newest book takes a look at art, books, and music, while also lending his always appreciated thoughts on race, gender, and politics. If you haven’t read enough from one of our best critics, this McSweeney’s collection is a good place to start.
