Untold Night and Day

To read this novel of shrouded pilgrimages is also to arrive at a meaning that is “bewitching, and utterly private, a secret for me, a single ship, a single concealed place”.


Starling Days

Complex and resonant.


The Devil’s Due
Kirkus Reviews : The Devil's Due (November 01, 2019)

Loose-limbed, prodigiously inventive, plotted with infernal logic, and riotously implausible from beginning to end.


The Yellow House

Out of the materials of memory and archival history, Broom's memoir solidly reconstructs what the forces of nature and institutionalized racism succeeded in knocking down.


The Refugees

In The Refugees Nguyen contributes to America’s narrative plentitude by adding to our collective story lives we must see if we’re ever to satisfy those ghosts.


Unspeakable

Shawcross can certainly write – there are some lovely images in Unspeakable – and she is obviously in possession of a curious and interesting mind. But there is simply not enough for a book here – or not for this book, in this form.


The Little Snake

What The Little Snake is about more than anything, though, is the acceptance of death as an ineluctable part of life. It’s not a new message, but Kennedy conveys it here in a manner that is subtle and hugely moving.


The Little Snake

In “The Little Snake,” the swift emotional slippages click along, one after another, sentence after sentence, like an intricate concatenation of rainbow-bright dominoes.


A Rebel in Gaza

The world would be poorer without Ghoul’s voice, without her warmth, her fury and her laughter.


Future Politics

It is mind-boggling enough just to contemplate the vastness of the challenge. To have written it all down so lucidly, engagingly and succinctly is a formidable achievement.


Black Prince

The Black Prince is anything but a grim read. It’s a stylistic pastiche that is far more than a tribute act – as though Roberts has dismantled the clockwork that made Burgess tick and reassembled it in a new form.


Left
Quill and Quire : Left (August 31, 2018)

Bischoff does succeed in building suspense and keeping it going.


Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now

Tiffany’s desire to make sense of the direction of her life, to delve into discussions of music, race, religion, God, paternity, romance, and mortality, makes this novel a terrific teen read for our tumultuous times. Hopefully, we’ll hear again soon from its author.


Convenience Store Woman

It’s a sign of excellent literature to be able to effortlessly hold up multiple interpretations at once. Murata’s book is no exception: It’s all of these things while also rendering an artful grotesque of modern personal branding.
