World

Koller sets the stage for an amazing interpretation of the world around us. The Restless Plant is not just a litany of examples of plant movement, although that alone is worth the read, but also an exploration of the mechanisms and physiology that support those movements, the intricacies and beauty of their responses. You will never look at plants the same way again.—Sarah E. Wyatt, Science

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
