What could be better? Add to that the publication of work from John Boyne and James Kelman, and you can see why this is our favorite time of year.
John Boyne's novel about the fate of the Romanovs, The House of Special […]

We've all had the experience of reading an author's work for the first time, and immediately resolving to read everything he or she has ever written. But you know it's true literary love when that resolve goes a step further: to read your favorite author's favorite authors. That's just the project scholar and biographer Anka Muhlstein undertook with her new book, Monsieur Proust's Library. In this month's edition of […]

A new Hoeg novel is always an event, but we've got even more on our docket this month: a memoir by one […]

We have a soft spot for debuts, but with writing as assured as Kathleen Alcott's, it's hard to believe that The Dangers of Proximal Alphabets is her first novel. Jami Attenberg wrote of […]
