“Sarah Blake is such a beautiful writer she can make any world shimmer, but The Guest Book is particularly fascinating―an intergenerational exploration of memory, identity, love, and family loyalty, of what it costs to inherit a name, a place, and a difficult alignment with history.

THE SEVEN OR EIGHT DEATHS OF STELLA FORTUNA by Juliet Grames
A richly told debut, The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna is a tale of family transgressions as ancient and twisted as the olive branch that could heal them.
“Juliet Grames has delved into the family secrets of an Italian American family and the ways in which those secrets, as well as slights and injustices, can both cross oceans and trickle down through the generations. This quintessential American immigrant story feels important right now, and I highly recommend it.”

THE QUEEN: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth
by Josh Levin
Part social history, part true-crime investigation, Josh Levin's mesmerizing book, the product of six years of reporting and research, is a fascinating account of American racism, and an expose of the "welfare queen" myth, one that fueled political debates that reverberate to this day.
"In the finest tradition of investigative reporting, Josh Levin exposes how a story that once shaped the nation's conscience was clouded by racism and lies. As he stunningly reveals, the deeper truth, the messy truth, tells us something much larger about who we are. THE QUEEN is an invaluable work of nonfiction."
―David Grann, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon
