The 7 Best Books of November

In a few short (OK, very long) days, the 2016 election will be over, and the news can finally begin reporting on the 2020 election. (We at Men’s Journal have been told what the outcome of this year’s vote will be, by the way, and it turns out the winner will be a controversial New York millionaire.) If you’re looking for something to distract you from Election Day and its aftermath, this month brings books about an unsolved murder in Japan, a memoir from a South African comedian born under apartheid, a biography of one of the most influential women in American history, and more.
