Happy publication day to FOG AND SMOKE by Katie Peterson! Confusion frames the human predicament. In , confusion is, literally, our climate. Writing to and from the California landscape, Peterson sees fog and smoke as literal. But they are also metaphysical. Fog and smoke reflect the true conditions (and frustrations) of our ability to perceive and to connect. Peterson writes, “I’ve been speaking about it at a distance. / Now I want to talk about its thickness. / A person could get killed in here.” Peterson unfurls the quotidian fabric of our lives, patterned with the difficulties of language and this moment. https://bit.ly/3tCUUS7

Happy publication day to ZERO AT THE BONE: FIFTY ENTRIES AGAINST DESPAIR! Christian Wiman braids poetry, memoir, and criticism to create an inspired, career-defining work. Beginning with Wiman’s preoccupation with despair, and through fifty brief pieces, he unravels its seductive appeal. The book is studded with the poetry and prose of writers who inhabit Wiman’s thoughts, and is filled with the voices of , , , and others join his own. At its heart, however, are his family—his young children (who ask their own invaluable questions, like “Why are you a poet? I mean why?”), his wife, and those he grew up with in West Texas. Wiman is the rare thinker who takes up the mantle of our greatest mystics and does so with an honest, profound, and contemporary sensibility. ZERO AT THE BONE is a revelation. https://bit.ly/46LCeNI

Happy publication day to SCHOOL OF INSTRUCTIONS: A POEM by Ishion Hutchinson, and SHIMMERING DETAILS, VOLUME I and VOLUME II by Péter Nádas (translated by Judith Sollosy)!

SCHOOL OF INSTRUCTIONS is a stunning memorial work that excavates the forgotten experience of West Indian soldiers during World War I. Elegiac, epochal, and lyrical, SCHOOL OF INSTRUCTIONS confronts the legacy of imperial silencing and weaves shards of remembrance—“your word mass / your mix match / your jamming of elements”—into a unique form of survival. It is a masterpiece of imaginative recuperation by Ishion Hutchinson, a poet of prodigious gifts.
https://bit.ly/3uqhL3u

SHIMMERING DETAILS, VOLUME I and VOLUME II is the magnum opus of one of Europe’s greatest living writers. In SHIMMERING DETAILS, VOLUME I, Péter Nádas probes the history of his family from the late nineteenth century to his birth in 1942 and beyond. In SHIMMERING DETAILS, VOLUME II, Nádas delves deeper into his and his parents’ lives during the tumultuous years spanning the rise of Hungarian Communism in 1948 to the brutal suppression of the 1956 uprising.

New November releases available in bookstores today! Happy pub day to ART MONSTERS: UNRULY BODIES IN FEMINIST ART by Lauren Elkin, MILTON FRIEDMAN: THE LAST CONSERVATIVE by Jennifer Burns, THE ECONOMIC GOVERNMENT OF THE WORLD: 1933–2023 by Martin Daunton, and WRONG WAY by Joanne McNeil 📚

ART MONSTERS is “destined to become a new classic” (Chris Kraus). What kind of art does a monster make? And what if monster is a verb? Noun or a verb, the idea is a dare: to overwhelm limits, to invent our own definitions of beauty. In this dazzlingly original reassessment of women’s stories, bodies, and art, Lauren Elkin explores the ways in which feminist artists have taken up the challenge of their work and how they not only react against the patriarchy but redefine their own aesthetic aims. https://bit.ly/3QWypiX

Jennifer Burns’s MILTON FRIEDMAN is the first full biography of America’s most renowned economist. Milton Friedman was, alongside John Maynard Keynes, the most influential economist of the twentieth century. In MILTON FRIEDMAN, the first full biography to employ archival sources, the historian Jennifer Burns tells Friedman’s extraordinary story with the nuance it deserves. https://bit.ly/3ueNWTq

THE ECONOMIC GOVERNMENT OF THE WORLD is an epic history of the people and institutions that have built the global economy since the Great Depression. In this vivid landmark history, the distinguished economic historian Martin Daunton offers a powerful analysis of the origins of our current global crises and a path toward a fairer international order. https://bit.ly/3svS4xJ

From MCD x FSG, WRONG WAY is a new novel that examines the treacherous gaps between the working and middle classes wrought by the age of AI. Joanne McNeil turns the unsaid into the unignorable, and captures the existential perils imposed by a nonstop, full-service gig economy. https://bit.ly/47xhTwa

Happy paperback pub day to JUST PASSING THROUGH by Milton Gendel and THE LION HOUSE by Christopher de Bellaigue! 📚

📷 Edited and with an introduction by Cullen Murphy, JUST PASSING THROUGH is a never-before-seen treasure trove of photos and diary entries from the celebrated photographer Milton Gendel that bring Rome’s midcentury heyday to life. “Milton Gendel had the good fortune to live a wildly entertaining life in Rome—a charmed, romantic period he captured in diaries and photos. Milton had the further good fortune to have Cullen Murphy bring this vanished dolce vita to life.” (Graydon Carter, coeditor of ) https://bit.ly/49qyrrG

🦁 Narrated through the eyes of the intimates of Suleyman the Magnificent, the sixteenth-century sultan of the Ottoman Empire, THE LION HOUSE animates with stunning immediacy the fears and stratagems of those brought into orbit around him. “Christopher de Bellaigue has a magic talent for writing history. It is as if we are there as the era of Suleyman the Magnificent unfolds.” (Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature) https://bit.ly/3Myjzh8

Happy book birthday to COMEDY BOOK by , PUTTING OURSELVES BACK IN THE EQUATION by George Musser, and THE NEW LEVIATHANS by John Gray! 📖🥳

From a beloved comedy critic, COMEDY BOOK is a wisecracking, heartfelt, and overdue chronicle of comedy’s boom—and its magic. Jesse David Fox—the country’s most definitive voice in comedy criticism and someone who, in his own words, “enjoys comedy maybe more than anyone on this planet"—tackles everything you need to know about comedy. An eye-opening education in how to engage with our most omnipresent art form, a riotous history of American pop culture, and a love letter to laughter. https://bit.ly/49lWjwy

PUTTING OURSELVES BACK IN THE EQUATION is a revelatory exploration of how a "theory of everything" depends upon our understanding of the human mind. George Musser tackles the extraordinary interconnections between quantum mechanics, cosmology, human consciousness, and artificial intelligence. This book shows how theories of everything depend on theories of mind—and how they might be one and the same. https://bit.ly/3QKF8NY

John Gray’s THE NEW LEVIATHANS is a bold, provocative reckoning with our current political delusions and dysfunctions. As a species we always seem to be struggling to face the reality of base and delusive human instincts. Might a more self-aware, realistic, and disabused ethics help us? Filled with fascinating and challenging observations, THE NEW LEVIATHANS is a powerful meditation on historical and current folly. https://bit.ly/3svWRPE

10/31/2023

ABSOLUTION by Alice McDermott is out today! American women—American wives—have been mostly minor characters in the literature of the Vietnam War, but in ABSOLUTION they take center stage. Tricia is a shy newlywed, married to a rising attorney on loan to navy intelligence. Charlene is a practiced corporate spouse and mother of three, a beauty, and a bully. In Saigon in 1963, the two women form a wary alliance as they balance the era’s mandate to be “helpmeets” to their ambitious husbands with their own inchoate impulse to “do good” for the people of Vietnam. 60 years later, Charlene’s daughter, reaches out to Tricia. Together, they look back at their time in Saigon, taking wry account of that pivotal year and of Charlene’s altruistic machinations, and discovering how their own lives as women on the periphery—of politics, of history, of war, of their husbands’ convictions—have been shaped and burdened by the same sort of unintended consequences that followed America’s tragic interference in Southeast Asia. ABSOLUTION is a virtuosic new novel from Alice McDermott, one of our most observant, most affecting writers, about folly and grace, obligation, sacrifice, and, finally, the quest for absolution in a broken world. https://bit.ly/47e8Zn5

Happy publication day to THE UPSTAIRS DELICATESSEN by Dwight Garner and THE DIMENSIONS OF A CAVE by Greg Jackson!

In THE UPSTAIRS DELICATESSEN, Dwight Garner gathers a literary chorus to capture the joys of reading and eating in this comic, personal classic. He writes, “Reading and eating, like Krazy and Ignatz, Sturm und Drang, prosciutto and melon, Simon and Schuster, and radishes and butter, have always, for me, simply gone together. The book you’re holding is a product of these combined gluttonies.” Through his lifelong infatuation with these twin joys, we meet the man behind the pages and the plates, and a portrait of Garner, eager and insatiable, emerges. This is a book to be savored, though it may just whet your appetite for more. https://bit.ly/3MdySvp

THE DIMENSIONS OF A CAVE is a virtuoso journey into networks of power, our embroilment with new technologies, and the dangers of corruption, by an electrifying debut novelist. It explores our drive toward war, violence, and venality, placing humanity and idealism under the spotlight. https://bit.ly/46HVeNJ

Happy publication day to THANK YOU (FALETTINME BE MICE ELF AGIN) by Sly Stone (out from AUWA Books), THE FUTURE FUTURE by Adam Thirlwell, HOW TO BE by Adam Nicolson, and THE MANY HUNDREDS OF THE SCENT by Shane McCrae! 📚

THANK YOU is Sly Stone’s new memoir and the first book from Questlove's new imprint, AUWA Books. As the front man for the 60s band Sly and the Family Stone, a songwriter who created some of the most memorable anthems (“Everyday People,” “Family Affair”), and a performer who electrified audiences at Woodstock and elsewhere, Sly Stone’s influence on modern music and culture is indisputable. But as much as people know the music, Sly Stone remains a mystery. Now he is ready to relate the ups and downs and ins and outs of his amazing life in his memoir, THANK YOU (FALETTINME BE MICE ELF AGIN). https://bit.ly/3M62x9T

THE FUTURE FUTURE by Adam Thirwell is a wild story of female friendship, language, and power, from France to colonial America to the moon, from 1775 to this very moment: a historical novel like no other. It’s the 18th century, and Celine is in trouble. Men are inventing stories about her. All these stories are lies, but the public loves them and spreads them like a virus. Celine can only watch as her name becomes a symbol for everything rotten in society. Fantastical, funny, and blindingly bright, THE FUTURE FUTURE follows one woman on an urgently contemporary quest to clear her name and change the world. https://bit.ly/3qL6EjU

In HOW TO BE, Adam Nicolson crafts a geography of the ancient world and a brilliant exploration of our connections to the past. What is the nature of things? What is justice? How can I be myself? How should we treat each other? HOW TO BE is an expedition into early ideas. Nicolson takes us to the dawn of investigative thought and makes the fundamental questions of the ancient philosophers new again. What are the principles of the physical world? How can we be good in it? And why do we continue to ask these questions? It is an enthralling, exhilarating journey. https://bit.ly/3ZZmcOo

And new in , THE MANY HUNDREDS OF THE SCENT is a stunning new collection of poetry from Shane McCrae, winner of the Whiting Writers' Award. Homeric figures mingle with those who populate the poet’s world. As Kate Kellaway writes in The Guardian, “In McCrae’s hands, poetry is reclamation. It is also transport: writing a way out and through.” https://bit.ly/3Q7wtUm

Rest In Peace Louise Glück, 1943–2023. FSG mourns the loss of the 2020 Nobel laureate and a profound and timeless writer. "Louise Glück’s poetry gives voice to our untrusting but unstillable need for knowledge and connection in an often unreliable world. Her work is immortal." (Jonathan Galassi, FSG's Chairman and Executive Editor)

“I think here I will leave you. It has come to seem
there is no perfect ending.
Indeed, there are infinite endings.”

10/10/2023

LACKOUTS, the highly anticipated new novel from the author of WE THE ANIMALS, is finally here! Shortlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction, BLACKOUTS mines lost histories—personal and collective. A book about storytelling—its legacies, dangers, delights, and potential for change—and a bold exploration of form, art, and love, BLACKOUTS uses fiction to see through the inventions of history and narrative. Out in the desert in a place called the Palace, a young man tends to a dying soul, Juan Gay. Juan has a project to pass along, one built around a true artifact of a book—S*X VARIANTS: A STUDY OF HOMOS*XUAL PATTERNS—and its devastating history. This book contains accounts collected in the early twentieth century from q***r subjects by a q***r researcher, Jan Gay, whose work was then co-opted by a committee, her name buried. The voices of these subjects have been filtered, muted, but it is possible to hear them from within and beyond the text, which, in Juan’s tattered volumes, has been redacted with black marker on nearly every page. As Juan waits for his end, he and the narrator recount for each other moments of joy and oblivion; they resurrect loves, lives, mothers, fathers, minor heroes. In telling their own stories and the story of the book, they resist the ravages of memory and time. The past is with us, beside us, ahead of us; what are we to create from its gaps and erasures? Happy publication day Justin Torres! 📖 🖤

Happy publication day to LOU REED: THE KING OF NEW YORK by Will Hermes, THE BOY FROM KYIV: ALEXEI RATMANSKY’S LIFE IN BALLET by Marina Harss, and MENEWOOD by Nicola Griffith (MCD x FSG)! 📚

LOU REED: THE KING OF NEW YORK is the most complete and penetrating biography of the rock master, whose stature grows every year. Will Hermes offers the definitive narrative of Reed’s life and legacy, dramatizing his long, brilliant, and contentious dialogue with fans, critics, fellow artists, and assorted habitués of the demimonde. As Hermes follows Reed from Lower East Side cold-water flats to the landmark status he later achieved, he also tells the story of New York City as a cultural capital. The first biographer to draw on the New York Public Library’s much-publicized Reed archive, Hermes employs the library collections, the release of previously unheard recordings, and a wealth of recent interviews to give us a new Lou Reed.

Also new in biography, THE BOY FROM KYIV is the life story of Alexei Ratmansky, the most celebrated ballet choreographer of our time. In the first biography of this groundbreaking artist, the celebrated dance writer Marina Harss takes us behind the curtain to reveal Ratmansky’s fascinating life, from his Soviet boyhood through his globe-spanning career.

From MCD x FSG, MENEWOOD is the much anticipated sequel to HILD. Nicola Griffith transports readers back to seventh-century Britain, a land of rival kings and religions poised for epochal change. In the last decade, has become a beloved classic of epic storytelling. MENEWOOD exceeds it in every way.

FSG is extremely saddened by the news of Khaled Khalifa's death this past Saturday evening. Khaled's most recent novel, NO ONE PRAYED OVER THEIR GRAVES, which FSG published in July, was longlisted for this year's National Book Award for translated literature. His previous book, DEATH IS HARD WORK, was a finalist for the National Book Award in translated literature. Both works were translated by Leri Price. Khaled has over the years become known as the greatest chronicler of Syrian life and of Syria’s ongoing and catastrophic civil war. He has been awarded the Naguib Mahfouz medal for literature, one of the Arab world's highest literary honors. We honor Khaled's life and important contribution to the world of letters today.

AMERICAN GUN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE AR-15 by Cameron McWhirter and Zusha Elinson is out today, everywhere books are sold. A most anticipated fall read from The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and more, AMERICAN GUN presents the epic history of America’s most controversial weapon. Veteran The Wall Street Journal reporters Cameron McWhirter and Zusha Elinson track the AR-15 from inception to ubiquity. How did the same gun represent the essence of freedom to millions of Americans and the essence of evil to millions more? To answer this question, McWhirter and Elinson follow Eugene Stoner, who invented the AR-15 rifle in a California garage.

The New York Times Books says AMERICAN GUN is, “a magisterial work of narrative history and original reportage . . . You can feel the tension building one cold, catastrophic fact at a time . . . A virtually unprecedented achievement." (Mike Spies)

“DOPPELGANGER is a different kind of book for [Naomi] Klein: more intimate and personal, shot through with a type of ambiguity that isn’t much of a presence in her earlier work . . . The parts of DOPPELGANGER that fascinated me the most were the ones that were exploratory and full of ambivalence. I wanted her to continue with her inquiry instead of short-circuiting it. But as much of an outlier as this new book is for her, Klein is still writing to mobilize. ‘I’ve always called my writing ammo for activists,’ she told me. Her doppelgänger was a signal that there was a problem, and she decided it must be this: Instead of being so cautious and apprehensive, she needed to double down.” Jennifer Szalai writes about Naomi Klein and her new book DOPPELGANGER, out 9/12.

Mitzi Angel, president and publisher, says, “Roland is an unusually elegant and unflinching writer, whose stories— about land, work, race, and power—move in mysterious and surprising ways. From the very first sentences, his voice announced itself as one to listen to, full of flair and moral depth—and we’re thrilled to support him in the early stages of what will surely be a long career.”

The FSG Fellowship is a yearlong program designed to give an emerging writer from an underrepresented community additional resources to build a life around writing: funding, editorial guidance, and advice on how to forge a writing career. The Fellowship celebrates the spirit of the FSG publishing list and its commitment to invention, curiosity, and extending the limits of literature. In addition to a $15,000 award, Jackson’s work will be featured in the FSG newsletter Work in Progress. The Fellowship also aims to provide an introduction to the publishing industry through FSG and its networks, including mentorship from Justin Torres, author of WE THE ANIMALS and BLACKOUTS. Jackson’s Fellowship will begin in September of this year.

This year’s judges, R.O. Kwon, Justin Torres and Maureen McLane—nominated a group of five finalists, from which an internal steering committee selected Jackson. We’re thrilled to highlight the four finalists for the 2023 FSG Writer’s Fellowship: Erica Frederick, Anthony Hudson, Sarina Romero, and Bradley Trumpfheller. Congratulations to all of the finalists!

The FSG Writer’s Fellowship is an ongoing program and will continue next year as we open submissions for the 2024-5 FSG Fellow. Thank you to all the writers who submitted their work! https://fsgfellowship.com/announcement-2023/
