Grief Is for People

Grief Is for People

Sloane Crosley

$27.00 $25.11

Editor’s Pick: This deeply intimate memoir follows Crosley’s exploration of grief after losing her best friend to suicide. It’s a work that turns the very notion of grief on its head, becoming one that, despite its subject matter, is somehow funny and very vivid. Mourning the loss of a loved one could be an incredibly lonely experience, but books like this make it all a bit more bearable.

Wandering Stars

Wandering Stars

Tommy Orange

$29.00 $26.97

"If there was any doubt after his incredible debut, there should be none now: Tommy Orange is one of our most important writers. The way he weaves time and life together, demands we remember how our history shapes us. In this novel the pain and resilience of generations are summoned beautifully. A wonderous journey and a necessary reminder." —Nana Kwame Adjei Brenyah, author of Chain Gang All Stars

Piglet

Piglet

Lottie Hazell

$27.99 $26.03

"Piglet is luscious and disturbing and propulsive, and I completely devoured it. It's a book about hunger and secrecy and women made small by convention. And it's a book that tears at the surface of things to reveal the vast, messy truth of a body with a beating heart." —Catherine Newman, author of We All Want Impossible Things

Whiskey Tender: A Memoir

Whiskey Tender: A Memoir

Deborah Taffa

$30.00 $27.90

"We have more Native stories now, but we have not heard one like this. Whiskey Tender is unexpected and propulsive, indeed tender, but also bold, and beautifully told, like a drink you didn't know you were thirsty for. This book, never anything less than mesmerizing, is full of family stories and vital Native history. It pulses and it aches, and it lifts, consistently. It threads together so much truth by the time we are done, what has been woven together equals a kind of completeness from brokenness, and a hope from knowing love and loss and love again by naming it so." —Tommy Orange, author of There There

Relinquished: The Politics of Adoption and the Privilege of American Motherhood

Gretchen Sisson

$29.00 $26.97

"Sisson's powerful, poignant research into the aftermath of adoption is a must-read in this era of staggering income inequality, escalating abortion bans and a non-existent social safety net. Relinquished confronts the question too many choose to ignore: '"What do 'choice' and 'agency' really mean, when the system has already whittled away all your options?'" —Jessica Bruder, author of Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

Moon of the Turning Leaves

Waubgeshig Rice

$30.00 $27.90

"Rice quite brilliantly weaves this sequel to Moon of the Crusted snow such that the ongoing journey of those wonderfully drawn characters carries on seamlessly. Moon of the Turning Leaves stands on its own while simultaneously carrying the heart of the original story. Suspenseful and gripping, the great anticipation for this next installment is borne out by this artful storytelling." —Michelle Good, author of Five Little Indians and Truth Telling

Dead Weight: Essays on Hunger and Harm

Dead Weight: Essays on Hunger and Harm

Emmeline Clein

$30.00 $27.90

"Dead Weight is a lyrical and scrupulously researched portrait of disordered eating in its many manifestations, which is also, of course, a portrait of this country's disordered relationship to women's bodies. An authoritative, generous, and persuasive debut that I wish I could go back in time and gift to my teenage self." —Melissa Febos, author of Girlhood

My Beloved Life

My Beloved Life

Amitava Kumar

$29.00 $26.97

A novel of vaulting ambition and tenderness, about how histories, both personal and national, are built, refracted, and revised." —Katie Kitamura, author of Intimacies

After Annie

After Annie

Anna Quindlen

$30.00 $27.90

"A new Anna Quindlen novel is always cause for celebration. After Annie might just be my favorite one yet. It's a beautiful and deeply moving story about love, loss, friendship, marriage, family, and community from one of our wisest chroniclers of modern life. I treasured every page." —J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Friends and Strangers

The American Daughters

The American Daughters

Maurice Carlos Ruffin

$28.00 $26.04

"I knew from page one that this wasn't going to be a typical journey through a familiar history. Wonderfully structured with a genius conceit, Maurice Carlos Ruffin's The American Daughters is a thoughtful, courageous, exciting invitation to look beneath the surface--to uncover, peel back, find, and examine the hidden, lost, and missing fragments of the record, the recovery of which will lead us to discover the spirit of resistance embodied by our ancestors and awaken it in ourselves. . . . A splendid work." —Robert Jones, Jr., author of The Prophets

Blank

Blank

Zibby Owens

$28.99 $26.96

"This is a sunny rom-com with a deep, dark heart--comedic and sad in equal measures. Yes, it's a meta-satire about the publishing industry, but it's also an authentically serious story about the pressure to be everything to everyone. Or, in other words, about what it means to be a woman." —Catherine Newman, author of We All Want Impossible Things
