The Coin

Capitalism, materialism, love, lust, friendship, purity, the natural world, cleanliness, place, and self-image are all explored in this thunderous, lightning-speed, fast-reading tale. Zaher, a Jerusalem-born Palestinian, writes with passion and holds nothing back in her buzzy, strong debut.

Anita de Monte Laughs Last

Gonzalez’s novel is based on the true story of artist Ana Mendieta who tragically died young, allegedly at the hands of a jealous man. The writing is absolutely fabulous, the story is gripping, and the characters are memorable. Outstanding.


Louis’s (History of Violence) brilliant autobiographical novel set off fireworks when it was published in France. This fast page-turner will stir emotions and quicken heartbeats as Eddy creates his ideal self-image.

One Woman Show

To be devoured in one or two sittings, this wonderful novel is astounding and ingenious. It will be a highlight of many book discussion groups and for devotees of art museums, especially women.

The Archive of Feelings

Heartfelt and honest, this poetic and impeccably written short novel takes readers on a deeply thoughtful, realistic psychological journey, admirably translated by Hofmann. Stamm is a writer who deserves a wide audience.

Lucky Dogs

With vivid and realistic characterizations, Schulman (This Beautiful Life) has written a work of fiction that should be read and discussed widely. Part mystery, part thriller, and at its heart an examination of why and how women can treat each other so callously and despicably, it’s tough to set down. Ironically, it would make a tremendous movie.
