Kirkus Reviews’ Most Anticipated Books of 2016

Kirkus Reviews announced their Most Anticipated Books of 2016, including these three Macmillan titles:

WHAT BELONGS TO YOU by Garth Greenwell
“The life of an American expat living in Bulgaria intersects repeatedly with that of a young gay hustler in this gorgeous debut novel from Greenwell. This is a project of rare discernment and beauty, and it is not to be missed. A luminous, searing exploration of desire, alienation, and the powerful tattoo of the past.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review readmoreremove

Stars For Two Literary Debuts!

Happy Monday, friends. It’s a brisk day here in NYC and we’d prefer to be at home with a cat curled up our lap and these starred debuts:

THE YID by Paul Goldberg
“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

Wily, rambunctiously entertaining [with] irresistible characters…. Goldberg ingeniously captures the brutality and lunacy of Stalin’s rule as well as Russia’s stoicism in this spectacularly incisive, humanizing, and comedically cathartic theater of the absurd.”Booklist, starred review
