We highlight two novels that explore our contemporary financial and social dystopia from wildly different points of view. Want a change of pace? Spend some time with "rare creatures and people . . . sometimes too compassionate for their own good." Megan Mayhew Bergman's debut short story collection delights.
Just in time for Mothers Day, three excellent and very different books about mothers and daughters.
We showcase a stunning debut short story collection, Monstress, and a period novel, Gillespie and I, that cleverly explores manipulative love. The Forest Laird is a fictional biography of William Wallace. And for a biography of the greatest photo-documentarian of our generation, read A Different Light, The Photography of Sebastião Salgado.
