Alexandra Kleeman recommends
The Sky Was Ours (2024)
Joe Fassler
"Infused with wonder and keen insight onto our shared world, Fassler has crafted a tender, questing ode to impossible dreams, and to the fragile but very real possibilities they open up in us. Rooted in our era of climate crisis and disillusionment but reaching out for something liberatory, it's the rare book that serves as both a provocation and a balm."
The Extinction of Irena Rey (2024)
Jennifer Croft
"Generous and strange, funny and disconcerting, The Extinction of Irena Rey is a playground for the mind and an entrancing celebration of the sociality of reading, writing, and translation written by a master practitioner of all three."
About Uncle (2024)
Rebecca Gisler
"Wry and funny and rich in strange new forms of discomfort, About Uncle is a slim volume that cuts deep, revealing the soft ligaments of family relations and letting them gleam under the light."
