This month’s selection is Nonfiction. Anderson Cooper’s great great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, built two empires—one in shipping and another in railroads—that would make him the richest man in America. His staggering fortune was fought over by his heirs after his death in 1877, sowing familial discord that would never fully heal.
