WHAT BELONGS TO YOU by Garth Greenwell
In WHAT BELONGS TO YOU, an American teacher in Bulgaria encounters a captivating hustler named Mitko in a public bathroom, setting into motion an ambiguously transactional relationship marked by both tenderness and brutality, connection and isolation. WHAT BELONGS TO YOU speaks of desire and the lives of those who desire with exquisite specificity and power, and will haunt you long after you turn the final page.
SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS by Helen Phillips
SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS, a collection of short stories, presents us with a surreal, disturbing assemblage of worlds, each complete and somehow totally convincing despite their strangeness. Though the characters of SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS struggle to connect with one another, all the while dealing with problems such as knowing the exact date of their deaths, or what happens when friends disapprove of their high-tech sex robot, SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS is a delight — there is joy in its darkness, and pleasure in its exuberant imagination.
THE LOST TIME ACCIDENTS by John Wray
Traversing time and space from 1903 Moravia to a hoarder’s apartment in New York City (with many stops in between), THE LOST TIME ACCIDENTS is a 20th-century epic of science, history, and inheritance. When a Czech pickle merchant discovers a theory of time, his descendants become obsessed and dedicate their lives to either studying it or attempting to escape what has become their family legacy. Ambitious and audacious, THE LOST TIME ACCIDENTS succeeds on both a grand and small scale, as it delves into the saga of one strange, captivating family.
