Happy #BookBday (11/7/17 Edition)

Today we wish a happy #BookBday to:

A SELFIE AS BIG AS THE RITZ by Lara Williams
Pushcart Prize-nominated Lara Williams’ debut story collection is a candid, wry, and deeply moving examination of young women navigating the road map to contemporary adulthood and middle age. “A cleverly written, bracing, and so-readable navigation of modern matters of the heart.” — Booklist

CATALINA by Liska Jacobs
A magnetic, provocative debut novel chronicling a young woman’s downward spiral following the end of an affair. “Propulsive, feminist psychological fiction from an author to watch.” — Booklist

ALL THOSE EXPLOSIONS WERE SOMEONE ELSE’S FAULT by James Alan Gardner
“Science spectacularly collides with superhero tales and magic to form the background of Gardner’s often hilarious exploration of friendship, stereotypes, and gender identity. The themes of identity and self-discovery are strong but not overwhelming, and Gardner elevates this enjoyable urban fantasy with an appealing cast and well-crafted prose.” — Publishers Weekly

HAPPY BABY by Stephen Elliott
On a flight from Oakland to Chicago, Theo thinks about two women he left behind: Maria, the girlfriend who shared his troubled youth, and Ambellina, the woman who has been satisfying the masochistic desires that emerged from it. His return to Chicago, and Maria, spurs the backward movement of this innovative novel that chases him ever deeper into the darkness and violence of his past. “Grimly deterministic, but intermittently powerful.” — Kirkus Reviews
