For all its considerable pretension, Row’s debut novel offers few insights into the formation of racial consciousness.


Sisters' Fate
Kirkus Reviews : Sisters' Fate (August 21, 2014)

The riveting, ambitious plot and strong, moral-yet-fallible heroine are a winning combination.


The Narrow Road to the Deep North: A novel

When the leads are offstage, the novel approaches greatness in its inquiry into what it means to be a good person. But there’s too much “her body was a poem beyond memorising” for the novel to fulfill its considerable ambition.

Jersey's second caper (Sugar Pop Moon, 2013), which finds room for several quirky characters in its crannies, is hard-boiled enough to remind readers of Hammett and Chandler.


The Invention of Exile: A Novel

A top-notch debut, at once sober and lively and provocative.


The Story Hour

An impressive writer, Umrigar delivers another smart, compulsively readable work.


Bittersweet: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Bittersweet (August 21, 2014)

An uneven but enlightening novel.


Never Mind Miss Fox: A Novel

Although the hidden incident at the core is predictable and banal, Glazebrook creates an air of faintly comic menace that grows more intense as the novel proceeds.


Putting Education to Work

A rosy but incomplete picture that would be of greater value to educators if the author weren’t trying so hard to sell the system.


Sweetness #9: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : Sweetness #9 (August 21, 2014)

Clever writing balances out the conspiracy theories, but the fictional treatment of this issue leaves readers wondering about the facts.


Don't Look Back
