Happy #BookBday (5/1/18 Edition)

Look at these outstanding new releases, perfect for every patron:

MOTHERHOOD by Sheila Heti
A May 2018 Indie Next pick and one of PW’s Spring 2018 Literary Fiction picks with two starred reviews! “The subject of the new novel from Heti is neither birth nor child-rearing, but the question of whether to want a child, which the unnamed narrator calls ‘the greatest secret I keep from myself’…. This lively, exhilaratingly smart, and deliberately, appropriately frustrating affair asks difficult questions about women’s responsibilities and desires, and society’s expectations.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

SONG OF BLOOD & STONE: Earthsinger Chronicles, Book One by L. Penelope
A Library Journal Spring 2018 Editors’ Pick with two starred reviews! The incredible first book in the Earthsinger series—a treacherous, thrilling, epic historical fantasy drawing on Native American and African mythologies about an outcast drawn into a war between two powerful rulers. “This debut…shines a bright light into epic fantasy. Battle-scarred lands and peoples, ancient powers at war, star-crossed loves and hints of racial and refugee themes give this a solid place on library shelves.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove

Stars for HERE I AM

The buzz continues to build for Jonathan Safran Foer’s first new novel in more than a decade—HERE I AM has THREE starred reviews!

“In his first novel in 11 years—a far longer, edgier, and more caustically funny tale than EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED and EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE—he choreographs the disintegration of the once blissfully close marriage of architect Julia and TV writer Jacob, exploring how their changing relationship affects their three sons… Foer’s voluminous, polyphonic, and boldly comedic tale of one family’s quandaries astutely and forthrightly confronts humankind’s capacity for the ludicrous and the profound, cruelty and love.” — Booklist, starred & splash page review

“Intensely imagined and richly rewarding… Foer fuses these complex strands with his never-wavering hand. That he can provide such a redemptive denouement, at once poignant, inspirational, and compassionate, is the mark of a thrillingly gifted writer.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The Blochs’ marriage is on a collision course, powerfully framed by reference to the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac, which makes this richly conceived work more than another tale of marital woe. Rigorous questions within an accessible story; highly recommended.” — Library Journal, starred review
