The August Notables fiction list includes a hilarious send-up of New York publishing in Adam Langer's The Thieves of Manhattan (Spiegel & Grau), a compelling examination of how unresolved grief affects a family in Kate Ledger's Remedies (Berkley Trade), and a brilliant, satirical look at modern marriage in Meeks by Julia Holmes (Small Beer Press).

In nonfiction, titles range from the story of exiled Chilean filmmaker Miguel Littin's return to his home country told through the pen of Gabriel Garcia Marquez in Clandestine in Chile (NYRB Classics), to the very personal memoir of musician Rosanne Cash in Composed (Viking), and a powerfully honest portrayal of an overlooked issue in She Bets Her Life: A True Story of Gambling Addiction by Mary Sojourner (Seal Press).

For mystery lovers, there's the return of zookeeper Teddy Bentley, who struggles to solve the murder of a colleague in The Koala of Death by Betty Webb (Poisoned Pen Press), and the 25th appearance of Jane Haddam's beloved Armenian-American detective Gregor Demarkian in Wanting Sheila Dead (Minotaur).
