Welcome to the 2015 Politics and Prose Holiday Newsletter. As we have in past years, we’ve tried to select the best—and most beautiful—recent books, fiction and nonfiction, to help you with gift-giving.

It’s also traditional to emphasize how difficult making these choices has been—it’s not just a matter of so many books, but of so many truly wonderful books. This year there’s been an especially impressive outpouring of short fiction and memoirs, but you’ll find bookseller favorites on all subjects here. Enjoy!

Pages

Jon Meacham chronicles the career of George H.W. Bush, drawing on official archives and Bush’s personal diaries to follow him from his Connecticut upbringing and service in World War II to his successful Texas oil enterprises, and through his long and diverse public career as a congressman, U.S. ambassador, CIA director, and president. Meacham says he wrote Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush (Random House, $35) after visiting with the former president and finding him a much more complicated and interesting figure than often depicted. The book provides a largely sympathetic portrait, but thanks to Meacham’s skillful questioning, Bush is drawn to offer some uncharacteristically harsh criticism of his son’s administration, including negative critiques of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
