Just Us: An American Conversation

Just Us: An American Conversation

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.

Earthlings

Earthlings

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.

The Lying Life of Adults

The Lying Life of Adults

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.

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

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.

Hurricane Season

Hurricane Season

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.

The Vanishing Half: A GMA Book Club Pick (a Novel)

The Vanishing Half: A GMA Book Club Pick (a Novel)

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.

Socialist Realism

Socialist Realism

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

Lynda Barry

$22.95 $21.34

In Making Comics, the great-hearted and very funny Lynda Barry creates a classroom in which all of us can be re-introduced to our own drawing kid genius. —Kimn

Anna Burns

Don’t be intimidated by the unconventional structure...the story is so riveting and the terror so real that you will hear the narrator’s voice long after you finish reading. —Owen

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

Olga Tokarczuk

$28.00 $26.04

Lighthearted and humorous, this is the most purely enjoyable book I've read this year. The eccentric narrator of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead will pull you over to her side immediately in Olga Tokarczuk's warm, endearing story about a string of bizarre deaths in a remote Polish village and the men who dismiss old women as crazy. —Kalie

Women Talking

Women Talking

Miriam Toews

$17.00 $15.81

I loved this book. Toews uses an unusual format — the minutes of a meeting— to weave a surprisingly compelling story and set of characters. Toews’ women are complex and fully realized, and capable of bringing humor into a conversation where they contemplate the unthinkable. —Francesca
