  Before April recedes too far into the rearview, let’s pause a moment to appreciate a month that gave us cause — as if we needed it — to celebrate both earth and verse. Whether you wanted a book for Earth Day (April 22) or for National Poetry Month (the whole darn month), Brian Teare’s “Doomstead Days” might have served: A collection of poems composed while walking, it honors and mourns the changing landscapes it encounters throughout. If that whets your appetite for more poetry, you should definitely read Morgan Parker’s “Magical Negro,” which cements her place as one of the smartest, liveliest, most accomplished young poets working today. Or if it fires you up to read more about the environment and what we’re doing to it, Nathaniel Rich’s “Losing Earth: A Climate History” (which started as an article for The Times Magazine) spins a bleak and gripping narrative about how we’ve reached this point. SMH, as the kids say online. That’s short for “shaking my head,” but in my house we thought for a long time it meant “so much hate.” In this case, both meanings apply.

  We also bring a couple of novels your way, along with a look at science’s changing views of mental illness, a history of American cult leaders and Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s new book about the short-lived promise of Reconstruction. Then there’s Mary Norris’s love letter to Greek language and culture, and — because April also brought us Shakespeare’s birthday — a look back at the 1769 theater festival that renewed his reputation despite being so chaotic that our reviewer describes it, wonderfully, as an 18th-century version of the Fyre Festival.

  MACHINES LIKE ME, by Ian McEwan. (Nan A. Talese, .95.) McEwan’s latest novel concerns a ménage à trois between a man, a woman and a sexy male robot. The story, set in an alternative 1980s England, is about what happens when Charlie, a London man in his early 30s, uses money left to him after his mother’s death to buy a first-generation robot named Adam. “There are some pokey moments in this novel, some dead nodes,” our critic Dwight Garner writes. “But McEwan has an interesting mind and he is nearly always good company on the page. In whichever direction he turns, he has worthwhile commentary to make.”

  MIND FIXERS: Psychiatry’s Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness, by Anne Harrington. (Norton, .95.) Harrington, a historian of science at Harvard, says that psychiatry’s biological triumphalism began to unravel in the 1990s and the 2000s. Anticipated discoveries in the biology of mental illness, vigorously hyped before they even arrived, never panned out. “Harrington doesn’t romanticize the world of mental illness before drugs — drugs that many patients credit with offering relief and even a chance at survival,” our critic Jennifer Szalai writes. “What psychiatry needs to do, she says, is narrow its focus to the most severe forms of mental illness and ‘make a virtue of modesty’ rather than hubris.”

  WALKING ON THE CEILING, by Aysegul Savas. (Riverhead, .) Savas’s delicate, melancholy debut novel unfolds in a series of 72 short, non-chronological chapters, pieces of a mosaic that demand careful attention as you attempt to fit them together. Nunu, the narrator, has come to France to study literature after the death of her mother back home in Istanbul. Our reviewer Sarah Lyall writes: “The unreliability of memory; the ways we talk to ourselves and to each other; how we can act as detectives in our own lives, combing the past for clues; how places can seem clearer from afar than when we are there — all these themes are touched on in Savas’s spare, disarmingly simple prose.”

  LOSING EARTH: A Climate History, by Nathaniel Rich. (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, .) Rich posits that “nearly every conversation we have in 2019 about climate change was being held in 1979.” This history details the paths not taken and the warnings ignored as the threat of global warming increased over the course of those four decades of inaction. John Lanchester, in his review, calls it a “gripping, depressing, revelatory … account of what went wrong — of how it was that a moment of growing awareness of climate change, and an apparent willingness to act on the knowledge, was allowed to dissipate into stasis and inaction.”

  GREEK TO ME: Adventures of the Comma Queen, by Mary Norris. (Norton, .95.) Norris, a longtime copy editor at The New Yorker whose first book chronicled her passion for punctuation, here recounts, with the same contagious wit and enthusiasm, her obsession with Greece — its language, history and culture. “‘Greek to Me’ is one of the most satisfying accounts of a great passion that I have ever read,” Vivian Gornick writes in her review. “Norris’s irreverent reverence for the history of the Greek language is not only admirable, it is moving. … You feel yourself in the presence of a traveler whose authority emanates from lived experience.”

  WHAT BLEST GENIUS? The Jubilee That Made Shakespeare, by Andrew McConnell Stott. (Norton, .95.) In 1769 the great British actor David Garrick held a three-day extravaganza to celebrate Shakespeare and advance his own career. This lively book captures the poor planning, incessant rain and ensuing chaos. “Stott’s book delivers a vivacious portrait of the Stratford-upon-Avon Jubilee,” Dominic Dromgoole writes in his review. “Garrick’s Jubilee of 1769 runs the Fyre Festival of 2017 close for overambition, chaotic planning and near disaster. Garrick, unlike Billy McFarland, somehow got away with it.”

  AMERICAN MESSIAHS: False Prophets of a Damned Nation, by Adam Morris. (Norton, .95.) The religious history of America is filled with cults and marginal sectarian communities. Morris fills in the fascinating details, with a focus on the charismatic prophets who dissented from traditional Christianity — and claimed, in one way or another, to represent God directly. “As strange as Morris’s subjects may seem, in some ways they are quite typical of American religious culture,” Molly Worthen writes in her review. “Morris shows that these oddball spiritual liberators are not just historical footnotes. They reveal society’s fundamental themes and contradictions.”

  STONY THE ROAD: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the Rise of Jim Crow, by Henry Louis Gates Jr. (Penguin Press, .) This lucid and essential history — bolstered by a wealth of visual material — traces the rise of white supremacy in the wake of the Civil War. Reviewing it, Nell Painter calls the book “a bracing alternative to Trump-era white nationalism” and says that its “devastating inventory of cruel, ugly stereotypes, lynchings and torture puts our current era immediately in context.”

  MAGICAL NEGRO: Poems, by Morgan Parker. (Tin House, paper, .95.) Parker’s tense, funny collection, her third, explores the gap between black experience and the white imagination’s version of it, further proving her considerable skill and consequence. “While some of Parker’s poems ironically posit themselves as ‘guides’ to black culture, the collection, by and large, provides a space to celebrate black excellence and black joy as well as to commiserate about injustice,” Emilia Phillips writes in her review. “Parker is a dynamic craftsperson whose associative thinking complicates traditional confessional approaches.”

  DOOMSTEAD DAYS, by Brian Teare. (Nightboat, paper, .95.) Teare’s latest volume, composed largely while walking, addresses climate change, apocalypse and grief in poems that feel solitary but intimate. “In wandering, his poems deliberately cultivate attentiveness to the motions of mind,” Tess Taylor writes, reviewing the book alongside three other collections. “Teare’s voices let us weigh the insoluble questions of how to live as an ethical being in the face of violence and environmental collapse.”
