THE UNPASSING is a Booklist Top 10 Debut!

Booklist released their picks for the Top 10 First Novels of 2019, and Chia-Chia Lin’s searing debut THE UNPASSING made the list!

THE UNPASSING

A Library Journal Best Debut!

With flowing prose that evokes the terrifying beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, Lin explores the fallout after the loss of a child and the way in which a family is forced to grieve in a place that doesn’t yet feel like home. Emotionally raw and subtly suspenseful, THE UNPASSING is a deeply felt family saga that dismisses the American dream for a harsher, but ultimately more profound, reality.

“Lin’s majestic writing immerses the reader in the bodily experience of her characters, who writhe, paw, dig, salivate, and draw readers into their world.”–Booklist, starred review

SCOT UNDER THE COVERS by Suzanne Enoch

A young woman whose brother’s gambling debts lead to her being blackmailed into marriage turns to a family friend in London for help–someone who’ll teach her the ways of London society, gambling dens, and the bedroom–but she may not be ready to give up her independence once she wins it back.

Holiday Break, and Happy Reading!

♫♪♫♫♪ ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Flatiron Building, not a publicist was pitching, not even a phone a’ringing. The books were already put up on the shelves with care, because no one at Macmillan would be there. ♫♪♫♫♪

Macmillan’s offices are closed from 12/24/18-1/1/19. May your days be merry and bright, enjoy the holidays with friends and family, and we’ll see you in 2019!

We intend to do a lot of reading while we’re off on our long, winter break and we hope you do, too. Here’s just a taste of what we’ll be digging into:
