This collection of forthcoming and recently released books (some hardcover, some paperback) are impossible to categorize except by their distinctiveness. These thoughtful, celebrated and anticipated novels (plus one novella) honor dark beauty, friendships, isolation, strangeness, and wonder found in unexpected places.
