LJ’s First “Writes” of Spring 2016

Library Journal‘s roundup of seasonal first novels includes these six “Literary Look-Sees” from Macmillan:

EVERY ANXIOUS WAVE by Mo Daviau
Hopwood Award–­winning author Daviau interweaves time travel, music, and love to good effect in her “mind-bending” debut. According to NPR, she delivers “a bittersweet, century-hopping odyssey of love, laced with weird science, music geekery, and heart-wrenching laughs…a wise, witty, whipcrack sci-fi romp about how our passions can both lift us up and hold us back.” LJ’s reviewer said, “Daviau writes with humor and compassion, creating absorbing, sympathetic characters and enveloping serious questions about love and life-changing events.”

BACK TO MOSCOW by Guillermo Erades
In 1999, young Martin enrolls at an elite Moscow school as a student of ­Russian language and literature and falls in with a gang of carousing expats. “An appealingly chaotic—if familiar—look at the inner life of a young ‘intellectual,’ ” read the Kirkus review. “With hints of Anthony Burgess’s A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, notes of Gary Shteyngart, and a shadow of Masha Gessen, Erades’s first novel is part frothy concoction and part deadly hemlock…. [T]he story begs to be read in one sitting.”

THE BOOK OF MEMORY by Petina Gappah
Gappah returns to her native Zimbabwe after her successful story collection AN ELEGY FOR EASTERLY, featuring albino Memory as her narrator. “A fiercely vivid novel…[a] beautiful, gliding dance of language,” said the Los Angeles Times. “[A]n exploration into the unpredictable grip of memory and perception,” said Booklist. LJ’s reviewer said Gappah “delivers her themes successfully, while stimulating all the senses with Memory’s vivid descriptions of food, music, heat, colors, and scents.” readmoreremove

Happy Fat Tuesday #BookBday (2/9/16)

THE HEART by Maylis de Kerangal
Two starred reviews for this audacious novel about the twenty-four hours surrounding a heart transplant told in multiple perspectives. “With its incredibly precise and exacting language as well as its dedication to challenging form, THE HEART shimmers and sears at the same time.” — Elle Magazine

THE LOST TIME ACCIDENTS by John Wray
A BuzzFeed Books’ 2016 pick! From the author of the critically acclaimed LOWBOY comes a much-anticipated new novel about time travel, family secrets, and the madness of the twentieth century. “An arresting mosaic of science fiction, history, and philosophy which proves Wray’s remarkable malleability and talent.” — Booklist, starred review

EVERY ANXIOUS WAVE by Mo Daviau
In this highly original debut that interweaves science and music, kind-hearted bartender Karl sells time travel trips back to famous rock shows and falls in love with Lena, prickly, overweight astrophysics grad student he hires to bring his friend back from 980 Mannahatta. Fun fact: author Mo Daviau used to be a librarian and archivist and she thinks you’re all superheroes“Hopwood Award–winning author Daviau writes with humor and compassion, creating absorbing, sympathetic characters and enveloping serious questions about love and life-changing events in a balloon of mind-bending time travels. Readers of all types of fiction will enjoy.”

THE YID by Paul Goldberg
Two starred reviews! “In this fantastical (and fantastic) debut novel by reporter and writer Goldberg, who immigrated to the United States from the USSR in 1973, a troupe of unlikely Soviet characters assembles with a single objective…to do in Stalin before his henchmen unleash the pogrom. Highly recommended for readers with a grasp of history who enjoy imaginative deviations from what we think we know as historical truth.” — Library Journal, starred review

Rock Music + Time Travel + Romance = Every Anxious Wave

Friends, we’re absolutely obsessed with Mo Daviau’s debut novel, EVERY ANXIOUS WAVE. The concept had us hooked, then we found out the author is a former librarian. AND she wrote a sweet letter to y’all:

Hello Librarian!

I used to be a librarian and archivist (I’m University of Texas School of Information Class of ’02). Perhaps it was my professional duty of preserving items from the past for use in the future that created the deep sense of nostalgia that I carried into writing EVERY ANXIOUS WAVE, in which a kind-hearted bartender sells time travel trips to famous rock shows and falls in love with the astrophysics grad student he hires to fish his buddy out of the way-too-distant past. There isn’t even a button on the control panel to program the wormhole to go to the future. They’re all about looking backwards. I was, too, at one point in my life. In fact, it was my actual job.

As my librarianship career was firmly in the camp of nostalgia and preservation, I never really got a taste of the work of librarians in service to the future—public services and reference and acquisitions—the librarian superheroes who work closely enough with the reading public that you get to tell them all about the great new books that are coming down the pike. But you get to! And that’s pretty dang cool.

I hope you enjoy my novel, either now, or in the future, or maybe in the past? As librarians are the closest thing we have to time travel salespeople, I believe you could pull it off.

With much gratitude,
Mo Daviau
