A Thriller Wrapped in a Story of Sisters and First Love

“Whatever the genre he’s playing with… O’Nan is an enticing writer, a master of the illuminatingly mundane moments… In OCEAN STATEM, O’Nan is subverting the thriller, borrowing its momentum to propel this bracing, chilling novel.… Ringing with the universal, OCEAN STATE is a map for the emotional dead ends of America, where kids kill other kids over seemingly nothing. O’Nan understands that at least in the moment, it is for everything.”

From Mary Pols, a stunning review of Stewart O'Nan’s OCEAN STATE — out this Tuesday! — at The New York Times Books.

“Ocean State” is Stewart O’Nan’s latest addition to an oeuvre that specializes in family drama.

When the Past Can’t Be Buried: Debut Novels Dredge Up Old Ties

“Friedman’s poetic novel explores mourning, memory and motherhood in a future Louisiana that has been ravaged by climate change. In this world, graveyards and burials have been banned by federal law, and loved ones are allowed to grieve only over state-owned ashes.… Friedman’s language is visceral, scrubbing away at dull details until they shine… Most captivating, though, is the stillness and quiet — lines that end abruptly and the images that conjure a deafening silence — representations of the graveyards that no longer exist, but whose absence is haunting.”

Olivia Clare Friedman’s HERE LIES wonderfully reviewed at The New York Times Books!

New fiction of familial roots and grief, spanning Louisiana, suburban New York and Trinidad.

How Bernardine Evaristo Conquered British Literature

“When GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER was nominated for the Booker Prize, in 2019, it did not yet have an American publisher. It did not receive a review by the London Sunday Times until just two weeks before the ceremony. On the night of the awards dinner, Evaristo wore a hot-pink pants suit and a black tie. After hours of deliberation, Peter Florence, the chair of the judging panel, explained that two authors had been selected. ‘We tried voting. Didn’t work,’ he told the guests. ‘We found that there were two novels, not that we couldn’t let go of but that we desperately wanted to win this year’s prize.’ Atwood was announced first, and then Evaristo, who received an enormous cheer.”

An absolutely phenomenal profile of the great Bernardine Evaristo, at The New Yorker.

In a new memoir, the writer describes how she was long excluded from the halls of literary power, and how she finally broke in.

Jeanette Winterson, My Therapist, and Me

“There are some subjects so tethered to our own story of ourselves that it is not even worth attempting the charade of objectivity. In order to write about Winterson, I have to write about myself.”

At The New York Review of Books, the brilliant Melissa Febos on the singular Jeanette Winterson.

When I was fifteen, recently dropped out of high school, and in love (with another girl) for the first time, I told my mother that I wanted a therapist.

The Unsung Heroes of the 2020 Presidential Election

“What THE STEAL offers is a view of the election through the eyes of state- and county-level officials… In Maricopa County, [Board of Supervisors chairman Clint] Hickman listened to claims of fraud, but concluded that the count was accurate, and then refused to take Trump’s telephone calls. ‘What did the president expect of him?’ Bowden and Teague write. ‘Nothing honorable.’”

Today, on the anniversary of the January 6th riot, this is essential reading: At The New York Times Books, Luke Broadwater, “who was trapped in the Capitol on Jan. 6 and has covered the aftermath,” considers THE STEAL, out now from Matthew Teague and BLACK HAWK DOWN author Mark Bowden.

“The Steal,” by Mark Bowden and Matthew Teague, memorializes those brave Republicans who defied their party and refused to overturn the 2020 election.

David Wright Faladé is Filling in the Record

“Faladé’s reading, he says, raised ‘questions about American identity, about which I was getting more clarity, that I knew I wanted to explore.’ For him, those questions mainly have to do with mixedness and hybridity. In BLACK CLOUD RISING, [protagonist] Richard’s mixed-race heritage gives him a particular, and particularly vexing, perspective on race relations.”

The only thing more exciting than this Publishers Weekly profile of David Wright Faladé is his blistering and wondrous historical novel, BLACK CLOUD RISING, which we can’t wait to publish next month.

In his debut adult novel 'Black Cloud Rising', David Wright Faladé imagines the mind of a real-life Black Union soldier.

Almost a year after Jan. 6, two journalists release their book 'The Steal'

“Many of the heroes of the book, the people who stood up and said, no; we’re going to tell the truth — were conservative people and even Trump supporters themselves. So it’s clear that the line between truth and lie is something that runs through every human heart, that it’s not just a matter of partisan politics. And that gives me hope for the country.”

This week, which marks the one-year anniversary of the January 6th, 2021 riot at the US capitol, we publish THE STEAL — the definitive, journalistic account of the attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election from Matthew Teague and BLACK HAWK DOWN author Mark Bowden.

This weekend, the authors rang in the new year by talking with David Gura at NPR's Weekend Edition.

David Gura speaks with journalists Mark Bowden and Matthew Teague about their new book "The Steal: The Attempt to Overturn the 2020 Election and the People Who Stopped It."

Review | ‘Small Things Like These’ reads like a Christmas classic

“Our holiday stories are so cloyingly flavored with sugar plums that Claire Keegan’s Christmas novella tastes especially fresh. At the opening of SMALL THINGS LIKE THESE, one immediately senses that Keegan is breathing something vital into the season’s most cherished tales, until, as gently as snow falling, her little book accrues the unmistakable aura of a classic… Get two copies: one to keep, one to give.”

Absolutely cannot get enough of Ron Charles’s EXTRAORDINARY review of Claire Keegan’s SMALL THINGS LIKE THESE at the Washington Post!

Claire Keegan’s novel breathes something vital into the season’s most cherished tales.

Cornel West on Frantz Fanon, One of the Great Revolutionary Intellectuals of the 20th Century

“Frantz Fanon is the greatest revolutionary intellectual of the mid-20th century. He also is the most relevant for the 21st century. His theoretical genius, literary artistry, and political courage are undeniable. And his personal integrity, wholesale honesty, and self-critical tenacity are indisputable. Like Charlie Parker’s bebop revolution in modern music, Frantz Fanon’s works and witness disrupted and shattered prevailing paradigms in modern philosophy, culture, and politics. Similar to Nina Simone’s subversive sonic intellect, Frantz Fanon made confronting the historical realities of decolonization inescapable. In short, he is a towering figure in our neo-liberal and neo-colonial time because he cast a light on the terrifying and terroristic underside of white supremacist European imperialism—a light that enables us to keep track of how those chickens have come home to roost around the world.”

At Literary Hub, the unmistakable Dr. Cornel West on Frantz Fanon, to mark the 60th anniversary of his death.

Frantz Fanon’s Enduring Legacy

“In Fanon’s view, the Western bourgeoisie was ‘fundamentally racist’ and its ‘bourgeois ideology’ of equality and dignity was merely a cover for capitalist-imperialist rapacity. In this, he anticipated the contemporary critique, frequently derided as ‘woke,’ that holds that the West’s material and ideological foundations lie in white supremacy. European imperialists had, he charged, ‘behaved like real war criminals in the underdeveloped world’ for centuries, using ‘deportation, massacres, forced labor, and slavery’ to accumulate wealth. Among their ‘most heinous’ crimes were the rupturing of the Black man’s identity, the destruction of his culture and community, and the poisoning of his inner life with a sense of inferiority. European thought, Fanon wrote, was marked by ‘a permanent dialogue with itself, an increasingly obnoxious narcissism.’”

The post-colonial thinker’s seminal book, “The Wretched of the Earth,” described political oppression in psychological terms. What are its lessons for our current moment?

Review | ‘Rock Concert’ goes behind the scenes with the people who made the biggest shows happen

“Unlike some recent oral histories that zero in on a particular time and place… ROCK CONCERT tracks the growth of rock-and-roll audiences across the United States from small, dynamic shows after World War II to the televised double-stadium spectacle of Live Aid.”

Marc Myers’s ROCK CONCERT gets an excellent review from Washington Post Book World!

A new Claire Keegan book is cause for celebration - The Boston Globe

“Exquisite… Keegan’s precisely considered details about character, setting, memory, and dramatic moment create a story you will want to read again and again. Her deceptively simple language is pitch-perfect… Keegan’s music is well suited to this season in a world where too often self-interest overshadows compassion.”

The Boston Globe on Claire Keegan’s SMALL THINGS LIKE THESE, on sale now.

“Small Things Like These” is an ideal title for this exquisite novella in which Keegan closely attends to the daily life of a modest County Wexford coal vendor.

A Queer, Literary Coming-of-Age in Seoul

“While straight stories still dominate shelf space and most spaces beyond, queer readers are conditioned to the hunt. How grateful we should be to find ourselves in a perpetual state of exploration, to be hungry for any and all stories about people who remind us of us. In Park’s hands, Young is loud and obnoxious, insufferable and magnetic, messy and wise. The prose, translated by Anton Hur, reads like an iPhone screen, vibrant and addictive. What a joy it is to see such a profound exploration of contemporary queer life — its traumas and its ecstasies throbbing in harmony. It’s a shimmering addition to the recent genre of novels chronicling queer millennial malaise.”

Sang Young Park’s LOVE IN THE BIG CITY — out today in a stunning translation by Anton Hur — gets a breathless rave from The New York Times Books!

Sang Young Park’s English-language debut, “Love in the Big City,” is already a best seller in Korea.

A Q&A with Anton Hur, translator of Love in the Big City | Grove Atlantic

“I can definitely recognize the different kinds of bad boyfriends in the story, as I was also once a twenty-something gay in Seoul. There were moments where I was practically screaming with recognition. But I didn’t find any characters difficult to translate, not even Young’s mother or his awful book editor boyfriend in the second section. Sang Young is such an honest writer, relentlessly honest if you will, that I know exactly what he means in every word of his text. He’s also effortlessly hilarious, which just brings everything up a notch in terms of fabulosity.”

Couldn’t be more delighted to share this Q&A with Anton Hur, as we prepare to publish Sang Young Park’s globally acclaimed smash, LOVE IN THE BIG CITY, in Anton’s translation tomorrow!

Publication Day Book Review: Reptile Memoirs By Silje Ulstein, Translated by Alison McCullough, Grove Press UK https://fictionfromafar.tumblr.com/post/678964891812610048/reptile-memoirs-by-silje-ulstein On my blog today I have posted a five star review of Reptile Memoirs. Silje Ulstein joins new prominent group of female suspense writers from Norway, including Agnes Ravatn and Helene Flood. Reptile Memoirs is a multi-faceted storyline told in multiple timeframes in first person narrative by 4 people anda Burmese python called Nero. I loved trying to piece together storylines over different periods to try to discover how they connect together. Provided you pay particular attention to these narrators and time periods you will find this a very unique and incredibly rewarding read. This was my most enjoyable read of 2022 so far. Reptile Memoires is a book that keeps you guessing and wondering how it all pieces together right until the last chapter. It is set in the north western coastal locations of Ålesund and Kristiansund. We meet Liv in 2003 who is in her late teens and living in a flat with two flat mates. On the outside they behave just like anyone else of their age, but they make the unique decision to buy a snake as a pet. Nero becomes Liv’s preoccupation and as he grows in size, she looks to fulfil his seemingly insatiable appetite. When she eventually realises he is not in the best setting, she and the snake abruptly disappear. 13 years later Mariam Lind is shopping with her eleven-year-old daughter Iben in Kristiansund when they have a trivial argument and Mariam in her anger disappears in her car. When she returns from a long drive hours later, she is told by her husband that Iben has not returned to the house. She is interviewed by several police officers including Roe Olsvik who is particularly unconvinced by her explanation while the coverage of Iben’s disappearance displays her and her mother’s faces prominently in the media. We start to follow the investigation from the perspective of Roe, who appears to have a tragic back story, and his colleague Ronja who is perplexed by her very experienced colleague’s out of character behaviour in his interactions with Mariam.
