Pizarnik's ultimate vision is a dark one, to be sure. But by the light of her brilliant language we see something in the dark that is not of the dark. So we keep reading, knowing full well it could be but a trick of the eyes.

How does one truly measure the value of a life lived? Audin doesn‘t presume to answer, but her mesmerizing first novel poses the question with artful grace.

Smoke | Dan Vyleta
post image

Smoke is a literary alternative history novel. The writing matches Graham Greene's and Somerset Maugham's for it's beauty, inventiveness, and immediacy. It is a twisting, swirling moral tale of power, sin, belief, and societal delusion.

Eyes Full of Empty | Jrmie Guez
post image

This unusual Parisian noir is as gritty and relentless as you would expect from the genre. But what makes Eyes Full of Empty stand out is Idir, the amateur private eye tasked with finding the missing son of a media mogul.

A beautifully written, enlightening journey which reveals so many of the historical particulars of our evolutions as a place and a people, this is a great book for anyone interested in family, ancestors, American culture, and how we each have come to be where and who we are.

The Door | Magda Szabo
post image

One of the finest novels I've read in a long time, Magda Szabó's The Door captivates. Her use of language and myth (translated from Hungarian) elevate and transport.

Pax | Sara Pennypacker
post image

Our booksellers can't stop talking about Pax. A throwback to the grown-up sort of kids books I loved. Takes the reader seriously, and is a spot-on reflection on maturation. Just a flat-out lovely book.
