The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Peter Kramer’s [untitled] wide-ranging and provocative take on the history, meaning, and future of psychiatric diagnosis as embodied by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, tied to the release of the fifth edition.

The Pit:

MaryAnn Marshall’s Reunions: How Fate Brought Us the Dogs We Love, a collection of stories about how our meetings with our canine friends are so often fated and the psychic connections extraordinary.
