Already an international sensation and prize-winning bestseller in France, Small Country is an evocative coming-of-age story of a young boy, a lost childhood and a shattered homeland. A novel of extraordinary power and beauty, Faye describes an end of innocence as seen through the eyes of a child caught in the maelstrom of history. Shot through with shadows and light, tragedy and humor, Small Country is a stirring tribute not only to a dark chapter in Africa’s past, but also to the bright days that preceded it.

This is almost a love story. But it’s not as simple as that.
Ellis and Michael are twelve-year-old boys when they first become friends, and for a long time it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, teaching themselves how to swim, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more. But then we fast-forward a decade or so, to find that Ellis is married to Annie, and Michael is nowhere in sight. Which leads to the question: What happened in the years between?
With beautiful prose and characters that are so real they jump off the page, Tin Man is a love letter to human kindness and friendship, and to loss and living.

“Each spare sentence as delicate as a brushstroke; combined they paint a vibrant, emotional work that will leave you enthralled.”—Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus

In Patriot Number One, journalist Lauren Hilgers follows a dauntless family through a world hidden in plain sight as they navigate the process of creating a new life in America: a byzantine network of employment agencies and language schools, of underground asylum brokers and illegal dormitories that Flushing’s Chinese community relies on for survival. As the irrepressibly opinionated Zhuang and the more pragmatic Little Yan pursue legal status and struggle to reunite with their son. Tang, a democracy activist who was caught up in the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, is still dedicated to his cause after more than a decade in exile. Karen, a college graduate whose mother imagined a bold American life for her, works part-time in a nail salon as she attends vocational school, and refuses to look backward. With a novelist’s eye for character and detail, Hilgers captures the joys and indignities of building a life in a new country—and the stubborn allure of the American dream.

AIR TRAFFIC by Gregory Pardlo

The Pardlos were an average, middle-class African American family living in a New Jersey Levittown: Gregory Sr., an air traffic controller, his wife, and their two sons, Greg Jr. and Robbie. But when “Big Greg” loses his job after participating in the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Strike of 1981, he becomes a disillusioned, toxic presence in the household.

Years later, he finally grapples with the irresistible yet ruinous legacy of masculinity he inherited from his father. In chronicling his path to recovery and adulthood–Gregory Pardlo gives us a compassionate, loving ode to his father, to fatherhood, and to the frustrating-yet-redemptive ties of family, as well as a scrupulous, searing examination of how African American manhood is shaped by contemporary American life.

We’re often told that swearing is outrageous or even offensive, that it’s a sign of a stunted vocabulary or a limited intellect. Dictionaries have traditionally omitted it and parents forbid it. But the latest research by neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists, and others has revealed that swear words, curses, and oaths―when used judiciously―can have surprising benefits. In this sparkling debut work of popular science, Emma Byrne examines the latest research to show how swearing can be good for you. Taking readers on a whirlwind tour through scientific experiments, historical case studies, and cutting-edge research on language in both humans and other primates, Byrne defends cursing and demonstrates how much it can reveal about different cultures, their taboos and their values.

In a major work of scholarship both erudite and very funny, Columbia professor Jeremy Dauber traces the origins of Jewish comedy and its development from biblical times to the age of Twitter. Organizing the product of Jews’ comic imagination over continents and centuries into what he calls the seven strands of Jewish comedy―including the satirical, the witty, and the vulgar―he traces the ways Jewish comedy has mirrored, and sometimes even shaped, the course of Jewish history. Persecution, cultural assimilation, religious revival, diaspora, Zionism―all of these, and more, were grist for the Jewish comic mill; and Dauber’s book takes readers on the tour of the funny side of some very serious business. (And vice versa.)

Rachel is a woman with a problem: she can’t die. Her recent troubles―widowhood, a failing business, an unemployed middle-aged son―are only the latest in a litany spanning dozens of countries, scores of marriages, and hundreds of children. In the 2,000 years since she made a spiritual bargain to save the life of her first son back in Roman-occupied Jerusalem, she’s tried everything to free herself, and only one other person in the world understands: a man she once loved passionately, who has been stalking her through the centuries, convinced they belong together forever.

Gripping, hilarious, and profoundly moving, Eternal Life celebrates the bonds between generations, the power of faith, the purpose of death, and the reasons for being alive.

Meet Jamie Wright, raised Jewish (keyword: raised and also Jew-ish) before her Protestant born parents traded in the menorah for a Christmas tree and pulled wee Jamie out of Beth Shalom Elementary School. Though sparked by her early faith encounters through Judaism, Jamie lost touch with spiritual affairs in her teens, and found warmth instead wrapped up in a leather biker jacket and a much older boyfriend. Two years of raucous teenage marriage later, Jamie strolls into her first suburban megachurch. Broken, willing, and malleable: Jamie is the perfect supplicant for Jesus. She embraces the Church with gusto and life seems to improve as a result. Yet, as the years roll on, Jamie wonders, “Is this it?” Was the church that Jesus built meant only for upper-middle class white people with bob haircuts and pinned up blouses? The answer, Jamie believes, is no.

Odessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their soul from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised: the Dead must remain shrouded. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, a grotesque transformation begins, turning the Dead into terrifying, bloodthirsty Shades.

A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears around the kingdom. Someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is forced to contemplate a terrifying question: What if her magic is the weapon that brings the kingdom to its knees? Odessa must untangle the gruesome plot to destroy Karthia before the Shades take everything she loves.

SILENT HEARTS by Gwen Florio

Two women in Afghanistan – one an educated Pakistani, the other an American aid worker – come together in post-Taliban Kabul, brought into the same orbit by the most opposite of circumstances and backgrounds.  Dependent upon their husbands, their loyalties, and their wits, these two women grow to form a strong bond, and a shared love of their new lives in Afghanistan.  Yet behind the friendship are betrayals that will change them forever…. Compared to moving and acclaimed literary fiction, from A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Swallows of Kabul – and even The Handmaid’s Tale – Silent Hearts will make you think of the day-to-day of the people beyond the headlines, how the political intertwines with the personal, and the freedoms and social mores we take for granted.  This is a transformative look behind the veils.

A bravura debut story collection in the vein of Aziz Ansari and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, about love, family, success, and the experience of being brown in America today. If You See Me, Don’t Say Hi examines the collisions of old world and new world, small town and big city, traditional beliefs (like arranged marriage) and modern rituals (like Facebook stalking). The men and women in these stories are full of passion, regret, envy, anger, and yearning. They fall in love with the wrong people and betray one another and deal with the accumulation of years of subtle racism. They are utterly compelling. Ranging across the country, Neel Patel’s stories — empathetic, provocative, twisting, and wryly funny — introduce a bold new literary voice, one that feels more timely than ever.
