This week in Paperback Row, don't miss "Futureface" (also one of President Obama's favorite books of 2018), about one woman's quest to understand her heritage. The only child of a Burmese mother and a white American father, the author crisscrossed the globe on her journey, and her story reminds us of how interconnected we really are. – Joumana Khatib, audience editor and paperback columnist | 📷 Alessandra Montalto
