TEARS WE CANNOT STOP: A Sermon to White America by Michael Eric Dyson
One of Kirkus Reviews‘s Most Anticipated Books of 2017! As the country grapples with race with anguish and anger at a level not seen since the 60s, one of America’s leading black voices speaks out honestly and provocatively to white America. “TEARS WE CANNOT STOP is a fiery sermon, and an unabashedly emotional, personal appeal. The result is one of the most frank and searing discussions of race I have ever read.” — New York Times Book Review
LILLIAN BOXFISH TAKES A WALK by Kathleen Rooney
A February 2017 Indie Next pick with two starred reviews! “Inspired by Margaret Fishback, poet and Macy’s ad-writing phenom of the 1930s, Rooney imagines an extraordinary walk through the streets of New York City on the last night of 1984, one that triggers a flood of memories for fictional ad woman Lillian Boxfish. Elegantly written, Rooney creates a glorious paean to a distant literary life and time—and an unabashed celebration of human connections that bridge the past and future.” — Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review

INDELIBLE by Adelia Saunders
A February 2017 Indie Next pick! In this masterful, enthralling debut novel about fate and family history, a young woman sees the truth about people written on their skin. “Hypnotically peculiar, exquisitely plotted, and teeming with suspense, Saunders’s brilliant debut pulls at plot threads as delicate as gossamer silk to get at the truth and the destiny of her flawed, appealing, maddening characters.” — Library Journal, starred review
TRANSIT by Rachel Cusk
Two starred reviews! In the stunning second novel of a trilogy that began with OUTLINE (one of The New York Times Book Review’s ten best books of 2015), a writer and her two young sons move to London in the wake of family collapse. “With the sparest prose, Cusk has again created an expertly crafted portrait in this distinctive novel about the fear and hope that accompany change, and one woman’s quest to conquer them. A masterful second installment to a promising trilogy.” — Booklist, starred review
