Readers seeking more complex storytelling can turn to “A God in Ruins” by Kate Atkinson (“Life After Life”), which introduces readers to Teddy Todd, an RA pilot who is about to find that the perils of warfare was nothing compared with those of peacetime. Atkinson constantly keeps us guessing as the story looping over itself in time and presents numerous possibilities for how Teddy’s life might unfold. “The Gospel of Loki” by Joanne Harris [HC and audio] reinterprets the Norse Völuspá from the point of view of Loki, “evoking the voice of a narcissistic celebrity memoir while retaining a timeless folktale aesthetic” (Publishers Weekly).
