An exciting declaration of passion and tenacity and what it’s like to be young, gifted, black, and queer in an America where every corner is marked with the specter of hatred, ignorance, and tragedy. Through adversity, Saeed Jones still manages to find a path to remain whole and resolute—within the tears, he finds purpose. This book cuts a groove into you. —Luis

Lara Vapnyar’s Divide Me By Zero is about love. It’s about a mother’s love, love lost, falling in love, what one would do for love, for, after all, isn’t love the most important thing? Katya Geller is an immigrant from the Soviet Union whose father died young (broke her mother’s heart), and whose mathematician mother was more than a little harsh. While in the midst of a mid-life crisis and her mother’s death, Katya finds the notes for her mother’s last unwritten math textbook. Using them to reflect upon her life and analyze how she got to this point is ridiculously entertaining. Vapnyar writes beautiful, weird, funny characters and the book is full of “warning notes to parents” regarding their children that are spot-on. —Rachel

Some authors write about the strange and the absurd with cold aloofness. Kevin Wilson writes about weirdness in a way that is funny and warm--downright fiery, in fact. I couldn't have enjoyed this story of a young, acerbic woman and the creation of her own misfit family more. —Tyler

Published: Graywolf Press - November 5th, 2019

An engrossing and necessary work of memoir, queer perspective, and groundbreaking artistry examining a history of abuse through a series of prismatic episodes dissecting road trips, meetings with parents, Disney villains, and gaslighting. Stumbling through each new layer you delve deeper into the unshakeable, irrational hold of abuse. At times what seemed like romance transforms in the next page into folklore, raw emotion, queer theory, criticism, and horror. I am immensely grateful for the work Carmen Maria Machado has done in writing as generous a book as In the Dream House. —Luis

Published: Doubleday - November 5th, 2019

This book is for lovers of stories. It acts as a maze as it dares you to run blindly through the labyrinth inside its pages, which are brimming with fairytales, allegories, secret societies beneath New York City, pink hair, rich sensory details, time travel, doors that lead to unexpected places, and shimmering magic that seeps under your fingertips. There's a lot contained in these pages so it's a bit lengthy, but each location and character is richly developed so that it's nice to stay in the world, especially for fans who have been waiting for something as immersive after finishing The Night Circus. —Julie

Published: Counterpoint LLC - November 5th, 2019

Margaret Sexton Wilkerson’s The Revisioners is a tribute, a prayer, a triumphant cry of gratitude to those who came before us. The intergenerational memories and desire for freedom and survival push Ava forward when things get hard. Moving into her grandmother’s house with her son seems to be a temporary fix, but she has no idea the legacy she has inherited. The Revisioners honors with reverence the histories of those who had no voice. —Rachel

Published: Riverhead Books - November 5th, 2019

While it evokes the wild, untamable, and gritty essence of a western filled with free-spirited adventure, romance, and danger, at its core beats a tender and vulnerable heart. Everything's a high-stake gamble and our protagonists--despite the secrets they'e burdened with--allow themselves to get carried away. Refreshingly queer with a palpable sense of longing and lush beauty. —Luis

The epitomy of evocativeness (not really a word, I know, but it somehow works here) -- how so slight a volume can so completely envelope a reader in a specific period in history (Chile in the Pinochet regime) is the mark of a truly gifted writer. —Tamara

This one's for those of us who have cried half-naked in the kitchen, who have looked in the mirror, eyes puffy, snot dripping down your chin and wondered what the hell you're doing. It's a collection of curiosities, memories, and deep research into art, history, politics, and poetry where Christle has fashioned together a hybrid compendium memoir of a little-understood yet everyday function of our lives. Such a weird, beautiful, insightful gift that will help me feel a little less alone in my next cry. —Luis

This novel is hilarious, thoughtful, beautifully written, and totally addictive. I read it in a day and am so eager to talk about it with everyone. Too bad I have to wait a long time to do that since it’s not out until 2020. #humblebrag I know, but it’s the truth. —Janet

I usually don't laugh out loud while reading but this book had me at a whole new level. Hilliard weaves her journalism background with her messy childhood to produce a surprisingly well-researched memoir filled with food and admirable naiveté. I loved getting a glimpse into her hilarious, insightful world. —Christy

Oona Out of Order  is a work of fiction that genuinely encouraged me to reflect upon my own mortality and the trajectory of my life. Oona wakes up on her birthday every year in a different part of her life. The difficulty this imposes is fascinating. Pop culture and music is ever present, as Oona is a musician and chapter titles are taken from song titles or lyrics. What would it be to live your life out of order? To instinctively want to second guess and redo what you saw as failures? At the heart, OONA OUT OF ORDER is about mastering the art of living in the moment and it is a terribly fun romp. —Rachel
