NEVER ENOUGH: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, by Michael D'Antonio. If you're not getting enough Trump in your news feed, try this bio of the megarich businessman / reality TV star / presidential candidate. D'Antonio, a former Newsday reporter, interviewed Trump and many others to fashion a portrait of this man he describes as "unrivaled . . . in his ability to capture and hold the attention of the American public."

THE PENTAGON'S BRAIN: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America's Top Secret Military Research Agency, by Annie Jacobsen. If you've never heard of DARPA -- the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency -- you're not alone. This new book by the author of "Area 51" and "Operation Paperclip" shines a light on the secretive organization behind many of the military's high-tech advances of the past 50 years, including Agent Orange, smart bombs and drones. (Little, Brown; $30)

UNDER THE UDALA TREES, by Chinelo Okparanta. Born in Nigeria and living in New York, Okparanta is bound to draw comparisons with novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. But this debut novel -- about two girls who fall in love with each other against the backdrop of the Nigerian civil war of the late 1960s -- offers a unique story told in a distinctive, lyrical voice. Okparanta is the author of a story collection, "Happiness, Like Water." (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $26)
