Gorgeously written very personal essays, the author's account of life in New York in the 70's. Thoughts and reflections on Patti Smith, Rene Ricard, and Joe Brainard, among others.
Geoff Manaugh$18.00 $16.74
What would it take to break into you home? An architect writes about heists, break-ins, tunnel jobs from the viewpoint of a burglar, but also writes about crime and urban life.
An erudite and readable deep appreciation of literature, reading, teaching, and thinking.
What would happen if modern technology turned itself off? No devices, no cars, no guns. Would it lead to Lord of the Flies or a nirvana on earth? This novel is Lethem at his best, upending genre and surprising us at every turn.
Raven Leilani$26.00 $24.18
Luster is the heartbreaking and hysterically rendered voice-driven first novel from Raven Leilani. This book chronicles the life of Edie, a black woman in her twenties in Brooklyn, as she negotiates the world alongside a fraught interracial intergenerational relationship.
Cathy Park Hong$27.00 $25.11
In this book of essays, poet Cathy Park Hong uses her own experience growing up as the daughter of Korean immigrants as a touchstone to deep conversations about race, identity, and the dissonance between the American dream and American reality.
Layla Saad$25.99 $24.17
If you have been wondering where to start with thinking about race, confronting your own internalized racism, or how to do anything about white supremacy, this book is for you. With Layla F. Saad’s 28 prompts for self-reflection, intended to be completed over four weeks, Me and White Supremacy is an opportunity to actually do the work you need to do.
Claudia Rankine$30.00 $27.90
Rankine, as always, provides a breath of fresh air to the conversation surrounding race in the U.S. Just Us is an invitation to talk about whiteness in a way that disrupts the normal mechanisms of white silence, guilt, and ultimately white supremacy.
Sayaka Murata$26.00 $24.18
Sayaka Murata is a master of outsider fiction, capturing perfectly people unable to fit into society or coalesce with the systems they are surrounded by. Earthlings is no exception, a delightfully weird and strange novel about a woman who believes she is not from Earth. Recommended if you want something just a little different.
Elena Ferrante$26.00 $24.18
Highly anticipated, Elena Ferrante’s first work since her acclaimed Neapolitan series does not disappoint. Ferrante’s signature voice never falters, and while The Lying Life of Adults mostly touches on similar themes to her other works, it strikes a new tone while exploring adolescence, family, and loss of innocence.
Isabel Wilkerson$32.00 $29.76
Everyone needs to listen to Isabel Wilkerson! Her new book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, is an incredible overview of the racial caste system in present-day America. With her signature thoroughness and clarity, Wilkerson has written a book of utmost importance.
Hiroko Oyamada$12.95 $12.04
Hiroko Oyamada’s fiction is elegant and unsettling at the same time. A surreal journey through an underground world in the Japanese countryside, The Hole is a page turner with a flavor like no other.
Fernanda Melchor$16.95 $15.76
Now out in paperback, the electric debut of Mexican writer Fernanda Melchor is a dizzying ride through a small Mexican village after the murder of “the Witch.” Equal parts ferocious and tender, Hurricane Season contains the stunning voice of a writer to be watched.
Brit Bennett$27.00 $25.11
A story of two Black twin sisters from Louisiana whose lives diverge sharply, The Vanishing Half achieves the finest literary excellence while also being an astute social commentary on race, passing, and sisterhood. It is also notable for the inclusion of a trans character who is well-developed but not the focus of the story. Well written, complex, and elegantly structured, this book will be hard to put down.
Trisha Low$16.95 $15.76
I loved this contemporary take on western migration as quest and metaphor, a sort of travelogue through the spoiled landscape of late capitalism, lightened (and darkened) by the sly and touching observations of the author. Trisha Low's book-length essay reads like a novel and functions as a road map to survival in our rather strange times. —Owen
