The Best Bad Things

Katrina Carrasco, 2018
“A brazen, brawny, sexy standout of a historical thrill ride, The Best Bad Things is full of unforgettable characters and insatiable appetites. I was riveted. Painstakingly researched and pulsing with adrenaline, Carrasco’s debut will leave you thirsty for more.”

The Bus on Thursday

Shirley Barrett, 2018
“Shirley Barrett has crafted a quirky, one-of-a-kind, wild ride of a novel with demons, kangaroos, a missing schoolteacher, a remote town where things are strangely off-kilter, and a wonderfully bizarre cast of characters. The Bus on Thursday is a darkly funny and...”

CoDex 1962

Sjón; Translated from the Icelandic by Victoria Cribb, 2018
"[A] challenging and cacophonous epic by the talented Sjón . . . An amalgam of creation myth, surrealist absurdity, ancient saga, and contemporary satire."

The Golden State

Lydia Kiesling, 2018
The Golden State is a perfect evocation of the beautiful, strange, frightening, funny territory of new motherhood. Lydia Kiesling writes with great intelligence and candor about the surreal topography of a day with an infant, and toggles skillfully between the...”

Nothing Good Can Come from This

Kristi Coulter, 2018

“Perfectly observant down to the smallest details, this account of drinking, sobriety, and starting (and then restarting) a manageable life is one of those books that is deeply serious, witty, and wonderfully compelling. Nothing Good Can Come from This seems to...”

The Mere Wife

Maria Dahvana Headley, 2018
"There’s not a false note in this retelling, which does the Beowulf poet and his spear-Danes proud."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Solucky nicolagriffith

So Lucky

Nicola Griffith, 2018

"Nicola Griffith is a brilliant creator of fierce female protagonists. With So Lucky, she fires a gritty, scary, wrathful, sometimes blisteringly funny broadside at the monsters of ableist culture."

Maria Dahvana Headley, author of The Mere Wife

Our Kind of Cruelty

Araminta Hall, 2018
“This is simply one of the nastiest and most disturbing thrillers I’ve read in years. In short: I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line.”
Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl

Acid West

Joshua Wheeler, 2018

"It’s been a long wait for Joshua Wheeler’s first book, but it would have been worth the wait even if we’d had to wait twice as long. Full of fine lines mined by a still-young writer, Acid West is worth its weight in gold."

Geoff Dyer

Look Alive Out There

Sloane Crosley, 2018
“How sure-footed and observant Sloane Crosley is. How perfectly, relentlessly funny.”
David Sedaris

Graffiti Palace

A. G. Lombardo, 2018

"This is a book that’s as crazy and unpredictable as an urban uprising; it’s a phantasmagoric journey, written in precise and haunting prose, through a wounded and defiant city called Los Angeles."

Héctor Tobar, author of Barbarian Nurseries and Deep Down Dark

9780374716387 fc

Whiskey

Bruce Holbert, 2018

"In the masterful and rueful Whiskey, the sentences and dialogue burn like 100 proof shots of the novel’s namesake: smoky, sharp, and chased with black humor."

Whitney Terrell, author of The Good Lieutenant

The Strange Bird

Jeff VanderMeer, 2018

“VanderMeer’s apocalyptic vision, with its mix of absurdity, horror, and grace, can’t be mistaken for that of anyone else."

Michael Berry, San Francisco Chronicle

Annihilation moviecover

Annihilation

Jeff VanderMeer, 2018
“It's been a long time since a book filled me with this kind of palpable, wondrous disquiet, a feeling that started on the first page and that I'm not sure I've yet shaken.”

Matt Bell, author of A Tree Or a Person Or a Wall

Kingzeno nathanielrich

King Zeno

Nathaniel Rich, 2018
“[Rich’s] descriptions of the vagaries of both nature and human nature are stark, fresh, and convincing, full of surprise and recognition as both good comedy and good terror must be.”
Cathleen Schine, The New York Review of Books
9780374716646 fc

Ultraluminous

Katherine Faw, 2017

"A sort of American Psycho from the prostitute’s point of view, a damning, often hilarious account of toxic masculinity and Wall Street money culture."

Alexandra Schwartz, New Yorker

9780374716721 fc

Catalina

Liska Jacobs, 2017
“The narrative tone of Jacobs' debut echoes the numbed nihilism of Bret Easton Ellis' early work, and her protagonist is just as lovely a person as his infamous characters. For those who appreciate the joys of a vicarious bender and the satisfaction of watching...”

Ghosts of the Tsunami

Richard Lloyd Parry, 2017
“A brilliant, unflinching account . . . Singular and powerfully strange . . . It is hard to imagine a more insightful account of mass grief and its terrible processes. This book is a future classic of disaster journalism, up there with John Hersey’s Hiroshima.”
Rachel Cooke, The Guardian
9780374182267 fc

Kung Fu High School

Ryan Gattis, 2017
“[An] ultraviolent, dystopian debut novel from Ryan Gattis, the spawn of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Cormier.”
Publishers Weekly
9780374716431 fc

Sourdough

Robin Sloan, 2017

“A wild, geeky, flour-dusted ride through the oddball food and techie communities of San Francisco . . . A winning story that—like its namesake bread—carries a satisfying tang.”

Life in Code

Ellen Ullman, 2017

Life in Code is a consummate insider's take, rich with local color and anecdotes . . . Ullman has a pure passion for computing that doesn't stop her from recognizing all the ways it can isolate and intimidate . . . Like all great writers, she finds the universal in...”

Safe

Arbitrary Stupid Goal

Tamara Shopsin, 2017
Arbitrary Stupid Goal is a completely riveting world—when I looked up from its pages, regular life seemed boring and safe and modern like one big iPhone. This book captures not just a lost New York but a whole lost way of life.”
Miranda July
Cityalwayswins hamilton

The City Always Wins

Omar Robert Hamilton, 2017
“Fucking incredible, and this is without hyperbole. Hamilton has created both an unsparing psychological portrait of a generation—a generation that could just about see a new world through the tear gas—and a poetic, searing depiction of a revolution betrayed.”
Molly Crabapple
9780374713010 fc

The Last Kid Left

Rosecrans Baldwin, 2017
“A dark and brooding narrative . . . [A] finely wrought thriller. Baldwin’s novel steers clear of tidy endings, remaining faithful to delivering a story that ebbs and flows with the messiness of real life.”
Karen Ann Cullotta, BookPage
9780374714925 fc

Borne

Jeff VanderMeer, 2017
“Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach Trilogy was an ever-creeping map of the apocalypse; with Borne he continues his investigation into the malevolent grace of the world, and it's a thorough marvel.”
Colson Whitehead
