New releases

“Jane’s Harmony” by Ryan Winfield (Atria, $15). A 40-year-old woman quits her job and leaves Seattle to start a new life with a struggling musician in Austin. Things change, and haunted by the death of her daughter, she must decide if she can commit fully to him or if her wounds are too deep. Winfield lives in Seattle.

“Sweet Thunder” by Ivan Doig (Riverhead, $16). New in paperback, “Sweet Thunder” follows Morrie Morgan as he gets thrust into a world of corporate intimidation, union politics, gangsters and bootlegging in the rough-hewed mining town of Butte, Mont. Times reviewer Tim McNulty wrote: “Friendship, loyalty, love, politics and the pitched labor wars of the early 20th century all come to bear on this epic tale.” Doig, a National Book Award finalist for “This House of Sky,” lives in Seattle.

“The Responsible Entrepreneur” by Carol Sanford (Jossey-Bass, $28). The author argues that a new breed of entrepreneur must emerge — one who will think bigger than specific issue-based products or services. Sanford draws on four decades of work with companies such as Google and Intel to present four “game-changing” archetypes for founders, leaders and investors. She lives in Seattle.

“Plateau Indian Ways With Words” by Barbara Monroe (University of Pittsburgh Press, $26.95). A former associate professor of English at Washington State University, Monroe offers a focus on Plateau Indian culture and its rhetorical tradition, from the pre-colonial period to the present day.
