Welcome to our annual fall books issue. For this year's look at the local literary scene, we're focusing on nonfiction. Inside you'll find features on and critical appraisals of five new titles, from Paula Kamen's investigation-cum-memoir of the life and death of her friend and colleague Iris Chang to Jamie Trecker's no-holds-barred account of covering the 2006 World's Cup to Anne Elizabeth Moore's analysis of the meaning of punk in an era when everything and everyone's for sale. And for your fiction fix, we've seasoned all the truth-telling with a handful of short reviews of new novels (and one anthology), including several by local authors. —Martha Bayne
