Next road-trip classics.

No, you can't read behind the wheel. But these days, promising books are released in digital audio immediately upon publication. Got a weeklong journey ahead? The buzz is strong for Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone (St. Martin's Press, 2018), an epic, heart-wrenching family saga set in the Alaskan wilderness. Tommy Orange's There There (Alfred A. Knopf, 2018), a crackling novel that peers into the fractured yet dynamic lives of 12 urban Native Americans living in Oakland, is also getting rave reviews. For shorter afternoon drives, a tale or two from Maxim Loskutoff's Come West and See: Stories (W.W. Norton & Co., 2018; shown below)--a debut collection with a dystopian bent set in the rural Northwest--fits the bill. And for quick pops of insight while commuting, try David Naimon's Portland-based radio show and podcast Between the Covers, which makes it easy to keep up with the contemporary-lit scene and find new titles.
