ANAÏS NIN: A Sea of Lies, by Léonie Bischoff. Translated by Jenna Allen. (Fantagraphics, $29.99.)

OFFSHORE LIGHTNING, by Saito Nazuna. Translated by Alexa Frank. (Drawn & Quarterly, $29.95.)

LADY CAROLINE LAMB: A Free Spirit, by Antonia Fraser. (Pegasus, $28.95.) This lean biography of the 19th-century Anglo-Irish writer sheds light on her enigmatic life, from her domestic relationship with William Lamb to her literary exploits and notably tempestuous affair with the poet Lord Byron.

TABULA RASA: Volume 1, by John McPhee. (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $28.) At 92, the longtime New Yorker staff writer presents a “reminiscent montage” from his career, reflecting on shelved writing projects from over the years, on topics such as a 25,000-cow Indiana dairy farm, the construction of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and more.

A LITTLE LUCK, by Claudia Piñeiro. Translated by Frances Riddle. (Charco, paperback, $16.95.) In this novel, a woman returns to her Buenos neighborhood Aires 20 years after she left. Her past is waiting for her there, full of guilt, but so is a little luck.
