Arbitrary Stupid Goal by Tamara Shopsin

“Shopsin weaves a marvelous patchwork quilt of stories about a Manhattan that doesn’t exist anymore—that of 1970s Greenwich Village, where her father opened Shopsin’s General Store… An artistic ode to a way of life that people now living in New York City might never experience.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Dark Dark: Stories by Samantha Hunt

“These short stories are works of dark, dark magic that skitter between worlds both recognizable and wholly new. Fans of Hunt’s work will revel in her first story collection, which marries her signature flare for the fantastic with keen observation and sharp prose. Grab your comforter and a flashlight for this tour de force collection from one of our most inventive storytellers.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This excellent, inventive collection…is rife with observant asides, sly humor, and surprises.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Incest Diary by Anonymous

“An anonymous author reveals a lifetime of secrets in this unforgettable memoir as she tells the story of her relationship with her father…The result is one of the most frank and cathartic depictions of child abuse ever written…This is not a story of things getting better, but an unflinching and staggeringly artful portrait of a shattered life…But by the end of the book, she has articulated an experience that for many victims remains unspeakable.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Nuclear Family: A Tragicomic Novel in Letters by Susanna Fogel

“A humorous, epistolary take on modern womanhood…”–Publishers Weekly

“Clever… Fogel’s spirited tale offers well-won moments of levity and understanding.”–Booklist
