Arwen Nicks gets book recommendations from authors Sherman Alexie and Jess Walter.

Alexie has recently become an unofficial ant expert after reading Mark W. Moffett's "Adventures Among Ants," saying that they are the only other species to go to war.

Walter's pick is a novel by Jenny Offil called "Dept. of Speculation."
