The Third Hotel
A Novel
Laura van den Berg
Laura Van Den Berg's haunting exploration of the dislocating loneliness of grief is focused and intensified by the twin lenses of horror and feminist philosophy. The result manages the delicate feat of being both unsettling and deeply moving. -- Recommended by Christopher, City Lights Booksellers

The New Dark Age
Technology and the End of the Future
James Bridle
Bridle's demonstrations of how the physical footprint of virtual space developed along the physical lines of traditionally imperialist, elitist power and continue to reinforce ever-deepening chasms of inequality are fascinating and alarming."––Recommended by Christopher P., City Lights Booksellers

Compass
Mathias Enard
Every decade or so, a book comes along that demonstrates the true gift that is 'Literature'. Compass is just such a book, one that through a single sleepless night plumbs no less than mortality, love, music, and the historical intermingling of two great cultures seemingly at odds.

In the Distance
Hernan Diaz
The Western as American myth has rarely been done so well, or been so well subverted. Hernan Diaz's story of Hakan, a young Swedish immigrant forced to fend for himself in the Gold Rush-era American West, is a coming-of-age tale, a picaresque, and a survival story filled with evocative beauty.
