Today, Pantheon is proud to publish...
🐟 THE BASS ROCK by Evie Wyld!
A new novel (with literally one of the most gorgeous covers ever 👀)
“The most gripping thing I’ve read in ages . . . A haunted house of a novel, as intricately built as relentlessly ominous . . . It’s that rare literary novel that will give you shudders . . . Wyld is so controlled and subtle a storyteller that her themes remain elegantly beneath the surface. What carries you along is the vivid description and an atmosphere of rising dread.”
—Taylor Antrim, Vogue
💜 PAYBACK by Mary Gordon!
Where reality-TV meets a lifelong reckoning between two women.
“Gordon creates finely nuanced moral quandaries and explores the deep toxicity of sexism with scintillating energy and piercing inquisitiveness . . . Every facet of this psychologically and sensuously lush novel about damage and nurture, altruism and selfishness, disorder and art, privacy and meaningful work, sexual violence and blame, hate and forgiveness poses profound questions about womanhood, how one lives one’s life, what truly matters, and what we owe others.”
—Donna Seaman, Booklist (⭐️)

From MY BROTHER'S HUSBAND by Gengoroh Tagame
Neuroscientist David Eagleman on How the Physiology of Drug Withdrawal Explains the Psychology of Heartbreak and Loss
in Brain Pickings
“The difference between predictions and outcomes is the key to understanding a strange property of learning: if you’re predicting perfectly, your brain doesn’t need to change further.”…
"Written under time pressure and fueled by dismay, outrage, hope, heart, wit, and serious talent, the books span four years, from shortly after Britain's bitterly divisive Brexit vote in 2016 through the day before yesterday. (Actually, Summer concludes with a letter dated July 1, 2020, which was a few weeks after Smith submitted her final draft.) What will keep them fresh long after the news cycle has moved on is their passionate engagement with universal issues such as grief, injustice, human warmth and cruelty, and the life-enhancing powers of love, art, and decency."
—NPR on SUMMER by Ali Smith
In Ali Smith's new novel, she reveals the overarching connections between the characters and themes of her previous three. Critic Heller McAlpin says connection is the great theme of these works.
