FICTION


I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai

“Chilled as the deep New England winters during which it takes place and twisty with the slowly found and then suddenly illuminated branches of memory, Makkai’s rich, winding story dazzles from cover to cover.” —Booklist, starred review

Liberation Day: Stories by George Saunders

“On the surface, Saunders’s language is disturbing and hypnotic, but it’s the currents underneath that really catch readers and pull them under. However surprising the premise or disorienting its unfolding, it’s hard to stop reading…Saunders’s writing is utterly original, and this first collection in nearly a decade will intrigue his fans and readers of short fiction generally”Library Journal, starred review

Shubeik Lubeik by Deena Mohamed

“Egyptian artist and writer Mohamed deservedly won the Best Graphic Novel and the Grand Prize at the 2017 Cairo Comix Festival for Shubeik Lubeik, the title explained as “a fairy tale rhyme that means ‘your wish is my command’ in Arabic”… The page count, in fact, might initially seem daunting, but Mohamed’s stupendously dynamic visuals will prove addictive, moving all too swiftly toward a rewarding, resonating end.” —Booklist, starred review

“The book is exceptionally imaginative while also being wonderfully grounded in touching human relationships, existential quandaries, and familiar geopolitical and socio-economic dynamics. Mohamed’s art balances perfectly between cartoon and realism, powerfully conveying emotions, and her strong, clean lines gorgeously depict everything from an anguished face to an ornate bottle . . . Mohamed has a great sense of humor, which comes out in footnotes and casual asides throughout. Immensely enjoyable.”Kirkus Reviews, starred

Humanly Possible: Seven Hundred Years of Humanist Freethinking, Inquiry, and Hope by Sarah Bakewell

“NBCC Award winner Bakewell (How to Live) brilliantly tracks the development of humanism over seven centuries of intellectual history… Erudite and accessible, Bakewell’s survey pulls together diverse historical threads without sacrificing the up-close details that give this work its spark. Even those who already consider themselves humanists will be enlightened.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
