Back in her hometown after graduation, Isabel spends the summer housesitting, dipping her toes into the murky pool of independent adulthood. While she grapples with the vast expanse of future before her (how to find purpose? who to kiss? how to fill the interminable hours? is it possible to hold on to your favorite parts of your younger self and still become something new?), a trio of young skunks plod across the borrowed home's backyard, eating beetles and finding their own way. A meditative, funny, hopeful little story that lodged its tiny claws directly into my heart. --Talia

What a vision, and what a voice. A 45-year-old, married, semi-famous artist meets a hot rental car agency employee. Pair that with info she finds on Dr. Google showing her sex drive is about to take a perimenopausal nosedive, and a series of life choices ensue — part-bewildering, part-empowering, entirely original. There’s a road trip that wasn’t, a gambit involving the interior-decorating wife of her crush, a garter belt, art, and, well, a lot of sex. A midlife crisis for the ages.--Elese

Blue Ruin: A novel By Hari Kunzru Cover Image
$28.00
ISBN: 9780593801376
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Preorder Now
Published: Knopf - May 14th, 2024

Hari Kunzru is one of my favorite writers. His alchemical style produces novels that are somehow page-turners and deep ruminations on the political and philosophical mores of the contemporary world. In Blue Ruin, Kunzru takes on both the art world of London in the 90s and the bizarre time-still days that were the summer of 2020. Confronted with their past selves, three art school friends must reckon with the meaning & purpose of making art ; how it intersects with authenticity, success, vision, money, survival, and truth. --Elese

Some books are polite when they invite you in: they hold the door, offer refreshments, let you poke around as you please for a few pleasant afternoons and then bid you farewell as you head back out into the big bright world. Woodworm doesn't do this. It draws you in and then slams the door behind you, sealing you inside a madhouse labyrinth of chattering shadows. --Charlie

David Aristarkhov is cursed, a demon on his heels and in his mind. A gifted psychic in his own right, he comes from a long line of mediums and magic wielders, which may also be the origin of his curse. His only allies happen to be his estranged ex, Rhys, and Rhys' wife Moira, who have every reason not to help him. Evocation was a breathless character study in vulnerability and resilience, in finding aid in others, and magic bonds worth savoring. I adored it. --Jordan
