And so begins “The Tumor,” one of the stranger literary digressions in recent memory. Against the wishes of his agent, editor and publisher, the author famous for (and rich from) legal thrillers, from “The Firm” to “The Rogue Lawyer,” just published a free book whose hero is a medical device called focused ultrasound.

The American Booksellers Association welcomed 60 new indie bookstores opening for business in 2015 in 31 states and the District of Columbia. The new stores include a children’s bookstore, a cookbook shop and café, and 16 branches or satellites of existing businesses.

Up to 80% off books you actually want to read.
