EVENING IN PARADISE: More Stories by Lucia Berlin
A Most Anticipated Book of Fall 2018 with two starred reviews! “Blessedly, a second volume with 22 more stories is in no way second rate but rather features more seductive, sparkling autofiction with narrators whose names echo the author’s in settings and situations that come from her roller-coaster biography (which is summarized in an appendix). No dead author is more alive on the page than Berlin: funny, dark, and so in love with the world.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE BEST BAD THINGS by Katrina Carrasco
1887—Former Pinkerton Women’s Bureau agent Alma Rosales is tasked with searching for stolen opium in Washington Territory and uncovering a thief while going undercover as a man. “Breath-catching pacing, tantalizingly rough-and-tumble characters who are somehow both distasteful and deeply relatable, palpable erotic energy, and powerful storytelling make this a standout.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
