SO MANY STARS in today’s #pubday… the sky is jealous!
THE NIGHT TIGER by Yangsze Choo
Three starred reviews!
A Nancy Pearl favorite!
“Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy. Choo has written a sumptuous garden maze of a novel that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
THE CASSANDRA by Sharma Shields
“[Shields] offers satirically comedic scenes and satisfyingly venomous takedowns of the patriarchy, welcome flashes of light in this otherwise harrowing dive into the darkest depths of hubris and apocalyptic destruction. A uniquely audacious approach to the nuclear nightmare.”–Booklist, starred review
TERRITORY OF LIGHT by Yuko Tsushima
Two starred reviews!
“This lovely, melancholy novel painstakingly documents a year in one young woman’s life… Grace hovers above the banal and the transcendent alike. Each chapter is as elegant and self-contained as a pearl or a perfectly articulated drop of water.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
RAG: Stories by Maryse Meijer
Two starred reviews!
“While at times her narrators can seem almost excessively cruel, Meijer’s stories are an indictment of the indignities women—and other men—face every day as they dodge or appease the dangerous impulses and appetites of misogyny. A rich, beautiful, and utterly terrifying book.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
THE CITY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT by Charlie Jane Anders
Four starred reviews!
“Violence, politics, betrayal, love, friendship, encounters with alien predators, and experiences in a dying city entwine to create a conflicted world in an even stronger novel than Anders’ Nebula Award–winning ALL THE BIRDS IN THE SKY (2016); a tale that can stand beside such enduring works as Ursula K. Le Guin’s THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS, Frank Herbert’s DUNE, and Dan Simmons’ HYPERION.” —Booklist, starred review
