This week we look back on the amazing career of Dwight Gooden.

It was a career that could have been historic, if not for Gooden’s chronic drug addiction. Happy to be alive and sober, Gooden shares his story in his inspirational and tragic tale of caution. Doc: A Memoir leads our Hit List this week.

Also on the list is Jamie Attenberg’s latest novel, The Middlesteins. It’s a story of a dysfunctional family that must come together to save the life of family matriarch.

Finally, we pay homage to a Hollywood legend with Rita Moreno: A Memoir. This book chronicles the career of this prolific talent that spans more than 60 years.
